L3's arrived to a frosty (but not frozen) pitch, full of New Year cheer and turkey dinner excess!

With Stroud's 11 vs Thornbury's 14 person squad, the match began. Naturally, Stroud looked to the Captain (CB) for command and leadership but unfortunately she was away Skiing, so it fell to Marsi (CH/CB) to step in. The new Stroud defence took a while to establish itself and within the first 8 minutes Thornbury was on the score sheet;  a second followed swiftly making it 0-2 before half-time. Stroud soon settled and from a fantastic break through the mid-field, Hannah (CF) had an accurate shot on goal, unfortunately the whistle was blown a matter of seconds before, for a Thornbury foot inside the D of which Stroud were unable to convert from the awarded shortcorner.

In the second half Stroud created some lovely movement of the ball with the forwards Sarah (LF) Hannah (CF) and Leonie (RF) all putting in some great runs and shots on goal. The midfield of Tabitha (LH) Megan (CB/CH) and Marie-Louise (RH) worked tirelessly to help defend and create attacking opportunities.  Special recognition for the defence Amiee (LB) Sophie (Sweeper) and Jules (RB) who all worked hard in the second half after some relentless pressure from an ever changing, fresh legged, Thornbury side who made it 0-3 before the final whistle was blown. Players of the Match were Tabitha and Sophie
