Thurrock earn a share of the points

Lewwis Spence, two goals at Wingate and Finchley.

Folkestone Invicta 2, Thurrock 2
THURROCk came away from the south coast with a Bostik Premier point after a match that ebbed and flowed.
The game should have taken place three weeks ago, but was postponed due to huge traffic problems at the Dartford Crossing and the visitors’ nerves must have been jangling en-route again as they didn’t arrive till less than half an hour before kick-off.
Fleet seemed to be eager to make up for lost in a first half that seemed to be played at breakneck pace and never looked seriously like producing a goal until Folkestone’s Ian Draycott fired home from a tight angle as Sam Hasler’s right wing corner was headed back across goal seconds before the half-time whistle.
But the home side’s lead was cancelled out only seconds after the resumption as Thurrock got back on terms when Michael Pindy skipped inside his marker to beat home keeper Tim Roberts from a tight angle on the left.
Folkestone were incensed when Lewwis Spence put Thurrock 2-1 ahead on 64 minutes from what seemed like an offside position and the home side’s mood wasn’t helped when they had two shouts for penalties waved away.
However, Draycott eventually put them on terms with a great finish on 69 minutes.
The game could have gone either way in the final 20 minutes but it was probably fair that honours ended even.
