Pucklechurch FC Vets Report:

" Puckle weathered the storm to grind down Thornbury in a game where the scoreline did not reflect the match. Thornbury chose to have the wind behind them first half but we took the lead when Fenton rifled home after a mad scramble. We were doing ok against the wind but Thornbury equalised when a runner from midfield rifled one into the top corner. Just before half time a long range effort flew in from thornbury to put them 2-1 up at half time. Soon after ht, Thornbury, who only had the bare eleven, went down to 10 men due to injury. With the gale force wind against them aswell, the second half was rather one sided. We equalised fortuitously when a Sammy corner caught the wind and flew in off the back post. A number of chances came and went before Thornbury were reduced to 9 men when another lad had to go off injured. Their resistance was finally broken when Tim fired home from distance and then finally the goals started to flow with Fenton adding his second and Glyn, Parry and an OG completing the scoring. Huge credit to Thornbury as the venue was changed to our ground on Saturday, and they turned up with eleven and put on a resilient performance. "
