Stroud Ladies 3rd' X1 never gives its opposition time to rest and today was no different.  Having gone 1-0 down against the run of play, the team threw all its energy, effort and skills at finding an equalising goal.  The short corners were well executed with some fine, forceful hits by Jenny Howorth.  The attacking formation of Mandi Lewis, Pip Robb and Sophie Payne was determined and the smooth, accurate passing of the ball was a delight to watch.  Defenders Lydia Wakefield and Jules LeBihan both gave their opposing players no space for personal flare or fast-moving attack.  The Di Furlong, Sara Price duo as sweeper and GK was dynamic.  It was a pleasure to have Sian Freer back in the team after recovery from injury and the half line of Sian, Marci Whelan and Kathy Williams had the centre of the pitch wrapped up.  Stroud's goal was scored in the dying minutes by Mandi Lewis from a fabulous pass, typical of her extraordinary performance throughout the match, from this week's star player Issy Smith.
