IN THE Baris North Midlands U19s League’s Mini Shield Group D, the big Derbyshire derby at the Silverlands last Thursday, between Third Division Buxton and Second Division Matlock Town, ended in 1-1 stalemate.

In what was a tense, end-to-end affair, Danny Hopkins scored for Buxton, with Jordan Holland replying for the Gladiators.

Buxton were back in Mini Cup action on Monday as they narrowly lost 1-0 at Staveley Miners Welfare.

The two sides are due to meet again at the Silverlands on Thursday in the same competition, kick-off 7.45pm.

* Matlock Town’s Reynolds Stadium will be the setting on Tuesday April 10 for a fundraising game in memory of a talented young Matlock under-19s player who died in a car accident four years ago.

The Matlock Memorial Shield will see Matlock Town under-19s play against Buxton under-19s in memory of Jack O’Dare.
