SHORTWOOD are gradually turning the corner, according to boss Jason Scrivens.

The Nailsworth side followed their first Toolstation Western Premier Division point of the season on Boxing Day with another on Sautrday - securing a 1-1 draw at home to Cribbs FC.

Earlier, it was Cribbs who opened the scoring when Sol Wanjau-Smith nosed his side ahead. However, Lee Bowles conjured first-half parity for Shortwood as he played in Lewis Bainbridge.

Boss Scrivens said: "We should of won comfortably really, even they were amazed we didn’t."

And defender Jacob Nowell was in positive mood, he tweeted: "Finally starting to pick up points and show the league how we can play, credit to the boys who don’t give up no matter how tough times have been. We’re on the up."

Shortwood welcome fourth-place Clevedon Town on Saturday, January 5.
