4th XI 07/10/17 v Tamworth

Stafford 1 – 3 Tamworth

Stafford faced a strong Tamworth team at home on Saturday and while the game was evenly matched they finished the wrong side of a 3-1 scoreline.

Stafford opened the scoring with a well worked goal up the right with Donna Thurgarland supplying a fast ball for Sam Bevington to run on to and slot the ball into the corner.

Tamworth came back 10 minutes later, with Stafford’s midfield stranded up the pitch the defence faced a 4 on 2 situation and were not able to keep Tamworth out.

The visitors came out strongly after the break scoring against the run of play to go 2-1 up and finished the game with a late goal after being awarded a penalty corner. Hilary Glaister excelled as a stand in goal keeper and youngster Sophie Greenhall again was impressive in midfield.
