Football: Late winner for Thurrock against neighbours

Ryman Div One North

Thurrock 2 v 1 Aveley

A LAST minute winner by Thurrock’s Danny Francis gave the Fleet another three points in the local derby.

Jordan Clark opened the scoring with a penalty in the tenth minute.

The score remained that way until the 70th minute when Aveley’s Petrit Elbi equalised.

But it was former Millerman Danny Francis who broke his former colleagues hearts with a last minute winner.

The result leaves Thurrock still four points off the top of the league with three games in hand.

They return to action on Saturday away at Waltham Abbey.

Aveley remain in ninth place, just four points off the play off places.

They return to action on Saturday against Dereham Town at Mill Field.
