Stroud Ladies' 3rd team achieved a 4 - 1 victory over Painswick in the team's first league game and, without all results of the day being posted, was top of its league!  The team has trained hard together over the past weeks and it utilised all the passing, positioning and jabbing skills that had been developed.  Stroud was off to a flying start with a goal mouth rush allowing Karen Whitehead to put the team ahead and it wasn't long before her second goal hit the back of the net.  Player of the match Sophie Wathen was relentless in her desire to move the ball up the wing and into the circle and she moved up the field with determination and distinction.  The final Stroud goal of the first half was a controlled, accurate and rapid set of passes between Sian Freer, Marcella Whelan and Kathy Williams with Kathy hitting the ball in the net.  During the second half Painswick pulled a goal back but a fabulous 'first time strike' from Sophia Binns ensured a win for Stroud.
