First League Win for Stroud Women

On Friday 12th January, Stroud Women took on Newent in their first ever Softball League fixture, winning a evenly matched game by just 9 runs. Stroud lost the toss and were put in to bat first, setting a brilliant 300 with runs contributed to by everyone due to some fantastic boundaries and daring running between the wickets.

Some great bowling and fielding then limited Newent to 291 in their innings rounding off a fantastic performance from everyone in a very cold Bentham Dome. If anyone is interested in joining the newly formed Stroud Women’s section, please email Kat Sutton (
