Thurlow Nunn ECL Premier Division
Friday 17th August 2018
Ed Rolph put us ahead in the 13th minute of this local derby, hooking home from close range after Evan Key headed Pat Bexfield’s corner back into the danger area. The lead didn’t last long as Jack Chandler headed the home side level five minutes later from close range.
Two goals in four second half minutes secured the result. Rolph burst clear on the counter attack with 72 minutes on the clock to finish past Niall Conroy before Dan Brown made the game safe with a clever finish from a seemingly impossible angle four minutes later and send the sizeable Stutes support home happy.
