Gloucestershire County League

Thornbury Town 2 Kings Stanley 2

THORNBURY Town prevented Kings Stanley from finishing runners-up in the league by holding them to a draw.

Town took the lead on 15 minutes when a chipped ball over the Stanley defence was pounced upon by Josh Pirie to out-strip the defender and slot the ball home.

It was another long ball that caught Stanley out a second time, when Pirie was in like a flash to put the home side two up.

Stanley never gave up and hit back in the 67th minute when Lee Pritchard turned a cross into the Thornbury net.

Just four minutes later Stanley drew level from a corner headed home at the near post by Matt Buckland.
