A THREE-FIGURE crowd watched last week’s local derby between Matlock Under-19s and Buxton Under-19s.

The Memorial Shield game at the Reynolds Stadium, in memory of Matlock teenager Jack O’Dare, was won 3-2 by Buxton.

In a game of two halves, it was the young Bucks who took the game to the Gladiators and by half-time they held a deserved three-goal lead thanks to efforts from Danny Hopkins, Jake Bradbury and Cameron Higginbottom.

Matlock’s youngsters came out fighting after the break, with George Marshall and Matt Wilkinson making for a thrilling end.
