L1 - Friendly vs Lansdown

The first game back after Christmas saw Stroud take on Lansdown, away. The squad was made up of 1st XI, 3rd XI and Old Stroud players.

Stroud started strongly, gelling well and adapting to how one another played. Stroud were quick to get into the attacking D to have a chance at scoring. This was well defended by Lansdown who cleared the ball straight through the middle and managed to find the backboard. Lansdown dominated the first half and managed to score a futher 4 goals. Stroud had some chance and short corners but none were converted into goals.

After a brief half time team talk, and a change in formation, Stroud were back to it. Despite the score Stroud remained positive. They also tightened up the marking and prevented Lansdown attacking through the middle of the pitch. This proved more successful and allowed Stroud to play their own game. After a period of attacking play from Lansdown, Stroud cleared the ball wide, drove up the wind and crossed it to Lucy Moule who scored from a straight strike at the top of the D. The final score was Lansdown 7 Stroud 1. Player of the match went to Angharad Roberts who was the rock of the defensive line.
