It was a learning curve for Mickleover’s young Reserves at top of the table Clay Cross Town on Saturday, losing 1-3 to physically stronger team.
Sports had Will Robinson sent off for clumsy tackle at 2-1. A harsh decision was the general opinion. Regan Eldridge and Finnlay Hunter scored for the dots, with Fin Ryder replying for Mickleover.
But all credit to Sports who took game to them, but a quick break finished them off late on as Josh Scully made it 3-1.
