Academy side show credentials with impressive result…
John Pemberton’s Under 18 side went some way to put themselves on the map this week, with a creditable 1-1 draw against Manchester United.
The Blades welcomed Paul McGuinness’ side to Shirecliffe who included the highly-rated Tom Thorpe, as well as early season standout stars Ryan Tunnicliffe and John Cofie.
However, it was the red and white of Sheffield United who took hold of the game creating the majority throughout the first half.
The first half ended all square, and within two minutes of the second period, the Blades were punished for not taking their chances when Larnell Cole curled in a free-kick from the corner of the box.
The Blades were soon back on the attack, and eventually got the equaliser they deserved when Joe Ironside capitalised to poach home after excellent work by the impressive Jordan Slew had forced a fine save from Joe Coll.
