Both players came on as substitutes against the Czech Republic a few days ago but got another chance to impress at the Riverside Stadium this evening.
England trailed 2-1 to two Philipp Hofmann goals after Jesse Lingard's 35th-minute goal had cancelled out the German's opener but Garbutt was involved in the home side's second equaliser with 11 minutes to go.
He played an infield pass to Pritchard that was nudged on to Nathan Redmond and the Norwich winger fired home a deflected shot with 11 minutes to go.
And Stones was part of the build-up as England took a 3-2 lead shortly afterwards, James Ward-Prowse eventually firing home at the end of a well-worked move.
It was the first time England U21s had beaten their German counterparts for nine years and it sets Gareth Southgate's team up well for the upcoming European Championships this summer.

England now getting forward with Ward Prowse and Garbutt slinging over good crosses.

Well done Gareth Southgate and his scouting team. Pritchard, the little Paul Scholes lookalike from Brentford was a quick skillful revelation in the left midfield. Wish we had him.
