Women's Football News
It was a bright day for West Midlands League Premier Division side Stratford Town, who heralded their first ever appearance at the club's brand new Knights Lane Stadium in the Tiddington district of Stratford Upon Avon by beating relegated Rea Valley Rovers 7-1, with Lisa Bright becoming the first Stratford Town ladies player to record a hat-trick at the new ground, Bright bagging four of Stratford's goals.
Jade Craddock opened the scoring on eight minutes before Lisa Slowther's double put the Shakespeare sisters well in control; Rosie Hawker reduced the deficit for Rea Valley before Lisa Bright struck four times, the first coming on 39 minutes before three quickfire second half goals inside seven minutes completed the 7-1 scoreline.
Having been made homeless after the football club sold its Mason's Road ground, the Shakespeare Sisters have been playing their football as tenants at the NFU Ground adjacent to its brand new Knights Lane ground. Under the rein of first team boss Mark Bickley, who has led the Sisters to a seventh place finish in his first West Midlands League campaign, Stratford Town enjoy the full support of their male counterparts through Chairman Craig Hughes, who was on hand to witness for himself the ladies' first ever match at Knights Lane. Chairman Craig has been a big supporter over the years of women's football, turning out to watch the team regularly when they took to the hallowed turf at Mason's Road. With a brand new stadium comes the hope the ladies team will be enjoying the same level of support they once attracted at their old Mason's Road headquarters next season.
