United’s U18s continued their unbeaten start to the season with a hard-earned draw against Sheffield United at Shirecliffe.

Second best to a useful Blades outfit for much of the first half, United slowly came into the game and took the lead shortly after the break thanks to a brilliant Larnell Cole free-kick. Joe Ironside soon put the hosts back on level terms however, and despite both sides pushing for a winner in an entertaining contest, the Reds had to settle for a second successive 1-1 draw.
