At representative level a week last Saturday, Nottingham Under 15s met East Riding at the Riverside Sports Ground in a Yorkshire League game, looking to avenge their 4-3 defeat earlier in the season. This was partially achieved with a battling performance which brought a 0-0 draw. Nottingham actually had the best chances to win including a shot against the bar in the second half but a limited squad was hit by injuries towards the end and a share of the points seemed a fair result.

In a West Yorkshire League game, the City’s Under 11s dominated the first period and took the lead when they intercepted a visiting defender’s pass and a quick breakaway and cross was converted. Towards the end of the second period, Nottingham thought they had increased their lead but were denied by an offside decision. Towards the end of the second period, Leeds came more into the game with Nottingham’s keeper making several fine saves but against the run of play, Nottingham went further ahead when a through ball was well converted. Nottingham squandered further chances and Leeds reduced the arrears before drawing level with a penalty in the last period to make the score 2-2.
