U19s draw with Stockport County

By Bradley Saxton | 9th February 2022

The U19’s conceded late on in a 1-1 draw at Wigginton Road on Wednesday afternoon against Stockport County.

Jonny Shepherd’s first-half penalty gave the Young Minstermen the lead at half-time, but they were made to pay and only take a point after conceding late on in the second-half.

City got off to a quick start at Wigginton Road, winning a penalty after a push in the penalty area. Shepherd stepped up and smashed the spot kick down the middle to give York an early lead.  

Fellow forward Josh Knowles came close to doubling City's lead ten minutes later, but his effort was blocked and cleared away by a Stockport County defender.  

City were well on top during a tough first-half for both sides, which was made difficult through strong winds in North Yorkshire.  

Early into the second-half York were handed three brilliant chances to double their lead. Knowles had an effort from close-range tipped away by a finger-tip save, Jack Degruchy hit the crossbar from inside the penalty area, before Ben Dale’s smart flick on from a corner was tipped away by the keeper.   

But with 16 minutes to go, Stockport found an equaliser which levelled the game. From a free kick deep out wide, keeper Michael Hogan was unable to hold the ball and it bounced over the line, bringing the visitors back into the game.  

Neither side could find a winner, as both sides share the points which see’s City remain 5th in the National League Alliance U19 Academy North.
