07 May 2013 - Sheffield FC [U21] v Dronfield Town FC [U21]

Our first year of non league, grassroots, women's and junior football photography features was almost drawing to a close, this was the No Clash Of Colours 77th feature from our debut season. One of the most exciting matches we were fortunate to cover was this Under 21 Meadowhall League Cup Final, held on a bright and warm spring evening at the superb ProAct Stadium, the home of Chesterfield FC.

Sheffield FC and their Under-21 counterparts from Dronfield Town served up some cracking football in a local derby that will be remembered for years by those that were there.  With both clubs beating each other in the League, it wasn't an easy match to predict. In the semi-finals, Sheffield FC had beaten Greasborough FC [U21] 5-4 after extra time, Dronfield Town had put five goals past Woodhouse JFC without conceding. Within a week of the defeat tonight, the U21 side from Dronfield Town would be celebrating the winning of the League.
