Stroud L3 continue to grow in expertise, strategic play and fitness!  In an incredible display of mid-field dominance Stroud took command of the match with some fine passing, moving and phenomenal marking.  There were breakthroughs by Bourton but these were stopped time and time again by the back 4 defenders - Sophie Payne, Claire Crosthwaite, Di Furlong and Pauline Edgington.  Ella Bullock was rock steady in goal and made some inspired saves to ensure that the team retained a clean sheet.  It was a mother and daughter attack up front with Sarah Scott's pass across the goal being placed nicely in the back of the net by Hannah Scott.  The mid-field of Marsi Whelan, Kathy Williams, Tabitha Dickson, Megan Cooper and Marie Louise Finch worked tirelessly to push the ball up the pitch into the Bourton D.  Bourton's GK must surely have been their 'player of the match' as she saved shot after shot both from open play and short corners.  A fabulous 3 points for the team heading into Christmas - Santa is going to have his work cut out to beat that!!
