L1 v L2: Stroud Ladies League Derby

30 September 2018 at 14:03

Stroud Ladies 1 v Stroud Ladies 2 was an exciting Severn 1 league fixture. The game started with L2 making numerous attacks into the L1 D. Stroud 1 regrouped and just before half time, L1 scored from Emily Campbell's lightening short corner deflection past L2 keeper Ella Bullock. 

In the second half, L1 pressed L2 back, Emily Campbell outpacing the L2 defence and scoring her second. L2 continued their passing form and won four short corners. Intelligent passing from Claire Crosthwaite top D to Jenny Howarth and Leony Colley, gave L2 strikes on goal, all denied by L1 keeper Aleasha Holder (cap). L1 responded with a quickly taken long corner, Sophie Wathen aerialling the ball into the net. L2 found the back board after a goal line tussle but were denied by the whistle. The game finished 3-0 to Stroud 1, both teams rewarding each other for a great game.

L2: First Game in Severn 1

22 September 2018 at 21:00

L2's first game in Severn 1 with a new look team against Gloucester 3 was a promising start to the season. Gloucester 3 put the pressure on in the first half and despite the defence GK Ella Bullock, Claire Crosthwaite, Molly Combe, Sophie Payne and Lydia Wakefield saving over ten shorts corners, 3 resulted in goals. Stroud then found their attacking form and was rewarded their own short corner but was unable to profit. Stroud held their own for the second half with good attacking play from Cordy King but conceded a fourth in the last 5 mins. Star player: Cordy King

L3 - GREAT TEAM PERFORMANCE AGAINST STRONG THORNBURY SIDE

17 September 2018 at 13:22

L3’s second friendly of the season with lots of new faces from a very successful B2H campaign and Vixens ready to take on the ladies hockey league!
Stroud played well in the first half against a Thornbury team of 11 outfield players. In the Second half Stroud settled and supported each other up and down the pitch. GK Ella Bullock was kept busy with many saves. Stroud were unable to score but put 110% into the game. Defenders Jules LeBihan, Victoria Sharpe, Elaine Noone and Grace Bedwell did very well to defend and run the ball into midfield and out of danger. Midfielders Mhari Spring, Katherine Marchant and Esme Clarke played well to support both defence and attack in what was a very fast game. Forwards Sarah Scott, Maria Smart, and Freya Wallace kept the Thornbury defence under pressure. Freya and Esme worked tremendously well passing and working up and down the pitch as a unit.
Player of the Match: Grace Bedwell
