HIGHLIGHTS: Gloucester City 2-3 York City – Saturday 31st August

In our featured game this weekend, a valiant Gloucester City side were beaten 3-2 by York City at the Jubilee Stadium. 

The visitors took the lead inside the first ten minutes, when winger Alex Kempster swept home a cross from the left, giving on-loan City goalkeeper Zach Jeacock no chance.

Joe Hanks produced an absolute rabbit out of the hat for City, as the midfielder rifled in an effort from 30 yards that flew straight into the top corner to bring the hosts level out of nowhere.

City then took the lead in an end-to-end final fifthteen minutes of the first half, after Jeacock’s diagonal ball forward was chased down by Joe Parker on the left hand side. Parker then beat his man before playing the ball infield. It fell to Chris Knowles who squared for Jake Jackson to poke the Tigers in front.

The lead only lasted two minutes, when a corner from the right hand side was nodded in by York forward Jordan Burrow, who did just enough to head the ball beyond a rooted Jeacock.
