Stroud Ladies 3rd team played this match with endless enthusiasm, commitment and energy.  This week's opposition were 2nd in the table and it was always destined to be a tough game.  Two new players to fitted in to the team immediately:  Frankie Hobbins did a fine job of marking and Annabel Wigley is clearly an out and out forward.  Jules Le Bihan's save on the line was awe inspiring, Pip Robb's left wing runs effective and Annie Hobbins gave the Blockley centre forward very little room to move.  Stroud were unlucky not to score on a number of occasions with Sarah Scott and Karen Whitehead moving the ball up the right hand side of the pitch at pace.  They were thwarted many times as their 'on target' shots were saved by the Blockely GK.  Mandi 'flick the ball over the opponent's stick' Lewis was in the right place many times and Marsi Whelan's command of the midfield this week was awesome.  Captain Pauline Edgington had lost her voice and Emma Crowe stepped in to manage the team and to play in goal.  GK was a busy position and time after time Emma did a great job of fending off the Blockley attack.  Players of the match Marsi and Emma. Average distance covered by each team member .... 2.6 miles!
