Beck-Esson opened the scoring midway through the first half, while Harris and Greenwood were in competitive mood in centre midfield. Hayward went close to adding a second, but it was Ellcott who grabbed an equaliser for the hosts before the interval.
Jones and Hawkins made a number of vital interceptions as Kings Norton threatened, though at the other end Cale linked up well with Greenwood who saw her effort saved.
A fine run down the left by Greenwood led to her giving the visitors the lead and some confident handling from Hornby in the closing stages ensured it turned out to be the winner.
Gloucester Girls: Hornby; Jones, Hawkins, Hayward, Harris, Greenwood, Cale, Wilden, Beck-Esson.
Gloucester A 2
Gloucester's A Squad spent a weekend in Devon, during which time they shared the Cotswold League points with Plymouth.
Harris gave the hosts an early lead, but a 25 yard free kick from Gilkes levelled matters and when the keeper turned another Gilkes free kick on to the post, Drewett pounced to give his side the lead.
With chances at a premium in the second half and Kyffin and Berry in top form for the visitors, it seemed as if the city team would hang on for the three points, but with 90 seconds left on the clock Stewart's far post cross dropped beneath the bar to give the Devonians a draw.
Gloucester A: Gardner-Medwin; Berry, Kyffin, Rigby Mitchell, Gilkes, Mace; Basford, Douce, Webb; Drewett, Cronin.
Gloucester B 2
Bristol were much the better side in the first period and fully deserved their two-goal interval lead, courtesy of Moore and Fry.
With midfielder Harris in fine form, Gloucester roared back after the break. Baron and Priday set up the opportunity for King to cut the deficit, before Hopkins reacted well to equalise after Priday's initial effort had been saved.
A penalty from Moore however and a fourth strike from Collins sealed victory for the hosts, though the city side can be well pleased with their second half display.
Gloucester B: Morrissey; Hatcher, Stubbs, Lawrence, McKenzie, Tyndall; Harris, King, Martin; Priday, Hopkins. Subs: Baron, Williams.
