Pride restored and some hope for the future ...

That was the message from Bramall Lane on Tuesday as a near 30,000 crowd saw Sheffield United gain a deserved 2-2 draw against Manchester United in the first leg of the FA Youth Cup Final.

The Blades ‘Babes’ had to twice come from behind - the first equaliser courtesy of a superb strike from Callum McFadzean and the second a deflected shot from Jordan Slew, who has already played for the first team.

United, who included seven Sheffield-born youngsters in their side, travel to Old Trafford on Monday for the second leg.
