Stroud arrived in plenty of time for their game against Wick. Following a good warm up Stroud started the first half strongly. Wick were also quick off the mark with the ball ping-ponging from each end of the pitch. The Stroud defence absorbed the pressure very well and managed to quickly clear all balls that came into the D . This play from the defence allowed the mids and forwards to look dangerous on the break. Stroud were able to get the first short corner of the game which was converted in to a goal from a straight strike from Lucy Moule.

The second half started strong with Stroud upping the tempo of play and quickly scoring 2 goals. Emily Campbell getting a deflection on one and Cerys King with a penalty flick. Throughout the second half the defence communicated well between themselves to establish who would mark whom. This positivity of play and good structure allowed Stroud to finish the game winning 3-1. Player of the match went to Cerys King who played brilliantly throughout her first match for the first XI.
