Durkar U15s opened the new season with an excellent 1-0 win away from home against Dearne & District in the newly formed Barnsley League.

Under-strength Durkar, fielding only 10 players, started strongly and attacked well in the first half and were rewarded with a good goal from Matthew Thomas midway through the half.

The second half saw efforts from both teams and as Durkar tired, a resolute defence ensured no way back for Dearne and the visitors came away worthy winners.

Stoneacre player of the match was Ben Day for his sterling performance at the back.
