Thurrock vs SHOTS

By Stray Shots Team
Last updated : 11 January 2005
Many Shots supporters will remember Thurrock under their previous name of Purfleet. Although they remained at the same ground, their name was changed 2003 and they also entered the Conference South.

Thurrock are currently sitting in third place in the league – perhaps more to do with their impressive away record to date than their fairly average home form.
