Toner brace sinks unlucky Nomads

A brilliant brace from John Toner and a late strike from substitute Tommy Holmes ensured the Saints of second. But the outgoing champions were made to work hard for the victory by a vastly improved Nomad side.

Toner's first came 20 seconds into the second half as he took down a long ball and instinctively lobbed Paul Pritchard. His second, arriving just after the hour mark, was equally as good as he acrobatically hooked in after a corner was never fully cleared.

But the battling Quay refused to surrender and a cool Ged Courtney finished four minutes later gave them renewed hope. But an entertaining game was settled six minutes form time when Holmes tapped in Chris King's cross.
