Sheffield United 2 Mansfield Reserves 2
17 Dec 2003
Report by John Street

Stags Reserves put in a good performance at Bramall Lane this morning and came away with a creditable 2 all draw and at times were in control of the game, with their fluid passing football which was a pleasure to watch.

Both sides fielded some first team players with the Blades having big Wayne Alison up front and Paddy Kenny in goal among them.

Stags fielded MacKenzie, Clarke, Buxton, Larkin, Beardsley and Mitchell, along with a couple of trialists.

Stags conceded a penalty during the first half which Alison had well saved by the Stags goalie, and went 1-0 down almost immediately.

Stags pulled the goal back through a Buxton header from a Lloyd corner, and went further ahead after the break through Mitchell stabbing home in the box.

The Blades scored an equaliser with 20 minutes to go, and complete a good Stags performance in which there passing at times was excellent.

Team: Goalie -Trialist, Woods, Buxton, Clarke, Trialist- Left back,
Lloyd, Hurst, MacKenzie, Curle T, Beardsley, Larkin.

Subs Used:- Parkes, Hankey, Heron, Holmes, Mitchell
