Youth Football: Downes double gives Thornbury victory



First published in Sport

Avon Youth League Division Four U14s

Shire Colts 0 Thornbury Town 3

THORNBURY won away at Shire Colts.

The visitors started strongly and were soon setting their sights on goal with Charlie Exel and Tom Cornock both going close.

However, it was Adam Tanner who broke the deadlock. After some great approach play the ball broke to the left back, who riffled in from the edge of the box.

Eventually they doubled they lead when a great inswinging corner by Sam Downes went straight in from the corner.

Thornbury grabbed their third of the game in the closing moments of the match when Downes, now playing in the unusual role of striker, showed determination to finish from close range.
