The final match of the season was just as fast and furious as those earlier in the season with the Stroud team on its mettle throughout the game.  Stroud had the most wonderful start with a fabulous goal within the first 5 minutes which started with a defensive pass from Ellie Mapletoft, moved through midfield management from Candice Johnson to the attack and an absolutely fabulous finish by Freya Robb.  Ross on Wye were right back in the game with a well taken short corner and Stroud were then on a mission to gain the 3 league points earned from a win.  Some fabulous work in midfield from Sophie Payne, Victoria Sharpe, Sian Freer and Charlotte Bullock enabled the forwards to continue their push forward with Claire Crosthwaite 'touching on' a ball in front of the goal to enable Harriet Smith to sneak the winner for Stroud.  Ross, in the relegation zone, were desperate for 3 points and the Stroud defence of captain Aleasha Holder, Bev King, Teigan Hurlock and Pauline Edgington had their work cut out to keep the ball out of the net but they were up to the task and the Stroud team finished an impressive season with a fabulous win.
