3rd PLACE IN THE LEAGUE FOR LADIES 2nd X1

Stroud fielded a team with a perfect mix of youth, experience and determination.  The Chipping Campden side had earlier in the season been top of the league and Stroud knew that it would be under pressure to pass well, stop the ball accurately and tightly mark the opposing forwards.  The marking was particularly challenging as the Chipping Campden team was constantly changing its formation and players were swapping from side to side throughout the game.  Another great pass from Hannah Scott allowed Evie Robb to fire the ball into the goal and put the Stroud team ahead in the first half.  Chipping Campden came out fighting and Stroud had to defend a run of short corners and some determined attack into its circle:  the Stroud defence reacted by raising its game to ensure that the good work by the forwards and midfielders in taking the lead was maintained.  The last 5 minutews of the match were dominated by Stroud's ex-Vixens players with the attack of Evie Robb, Iona Strang, Jemima Friend, ably supported by Teigan Hurlock in defence, running rings around the tired legs of the Chipping Campden side.  Another 3 points and a great result for the team.
