Sunderland U18s 2 Stoke City U18s 2: Thomas at the double

Have your say

Nathan Thomas opened and closed the scoring as Sunderland shared the spoils with Stoke City in today’s Barclays U18 Premier League Qualification Group Tier 1 clash at the Academy of Light.

Thomas’s goals were cancelled out as Stoke capitalised on two defensive errors to strike twice. The home striker was denied a match-winning hat-trick in the final minute by a good save from the Potters’ keeper.
