Steel City derbies have seen some superb goals down the years but few have been better than Matt Penney’s over the weekend.

The Sheffield Wednesday youngster scored twice as the Owls’ Under 18 side beat their United counterparts 3-0 at Shirecliffe but it was his second goal of the day that is worth watching as the 18 year-old glided Diego Maradona-like through the Blades defence before slotting home.

The goal was reminiscent of that famous solo effort by the Argentine genius against England (not that one), in the Mexico ‘86 World Cup...a mere 12 years before Penney was born.

Glenn Law got the other for Wednesday in a comfortable win for the young Owls.
