Stroud Ladies 1st XI went into this game still thirsty for points after a run of losses.
The game started with an early short corner awarded to Cheltenham which they converted with a super strike on goal.  The scoreline was short lived as Stroud came back with a great pass from Sam Norman to Amy LloydJones who quickly found the backboard.
A quick break in play and Cheltenham soon scored again but Stroud weren't deterred at all and put in some wonderful work through the strong midfield and sent the play back into Cheltenhams 25, where a smashing strike from Sam Norman was sent past the Cheltenham keeper and into the net.A further goal from Norman saw the half time score at 3-2 to Stroud.
Second half saw more determination, great passing and solid work from the Stroud defence who denied Cheltenham the pleasure of scoring anymore goals.A slick short corner goal from Emily Campbell made it 4-2 and a final smash from Sam Norman saw the final score 5-2 to Stroud. 
A fantastic win and 3 well deserved points!
MOM - Sam Norman

L2 v Chipping Camden

04 November 2018 at 14:12

Chipping Camden scored 3 times in the first 20 minutes against Stroud Ladies 2. Stroud stepped up, leaving no Camden player unmarked and won its own short corner, Sarah Mace strike blocked by the keeper. Chipping Camden responded scoring a fourth.

In the second half, Stroud moved up and down the pitch as a single unit and put more attacking pressure on Chipping Camden - Forward and midfield: Freya Wallace, Sarah Mace, Ellie Freer, Molly Combe, Maria Smart and Victoria Sharpe getting opportunities in the D. GK Jennie Davies made some excellent saves, but despite a more organised defence- Lizzie Woods, Sophie Payne, Elaine Noone and Mopsey Voss - Camden found the net twice more.

Despite the score, Stroud 2 learnt a lot about team tactics. This game clearly demonstrated the importance of tactics in the new league and how all eleven players are required in both densive and attacking play. The structure in the second half now gives a basis for all games going forwards. Well done to all!
