    I'm starting this U23 game thread a few days earlier than usual as it's a game a few more people might want to/ be able to get to.
    On Tuesday 19 Feb at 7pm, it's our U23s v Sheffield Wednesday at Bramall Lane. Remembering, I'm just a supporter, not a mouthpiece for the club. The normal set up for such a game would be....
    Season ticket holders in for free
    Adults £3 Concessions £1 (or maybe £2)
    Only the South Stand open. Entry via the ramp off Cherry St (towards the Shoreham Street end)

    This is an U23 Professional Development League game. There are 10 Category 2 Academy teams in the North Group. There is no promotion & relegation in the conventional sense. The top two in the North play off with the top two in the South to decide the overall winners. The North Group play a 28 game season. We are in 6th, played 21 for 29 points, 10 points adrift of the play offs. SWFC are 9th, 4 points behind us, but with two games in hand.

    Utd currently field a very young U23 side. We have ten of our more experienced Academy youngsters out on loan. And, we moved Jordan Hallam, Harvey Gilmour & Callum Semple on in the last window.

    Anyway, I thought I'd Heads Up, in case people can make plans to attend with a bit of notice.

    Harrison Neal. Yes. Sort of. He's played a good few games at U23.

    Might pop down...you might even get a report you lucky people. As long as I get a coveted 'sheet' or I will have no idea who is playing...and you won't get a report.

    It so happens I have a nice Harrison Neal story which gives a great insight into how our Academy pushes players out of their comfort zone. For the avoidance of doubt, some of this Blog is tongue in cheek. Here's the link....

    Do season ticket holders have to pick a ticket up or does the card work at the turnstiles?

    Cheers

    There will be a couple of stewards at the turnstiles with a handful of paper tickets. Show them your season ticket in exchange for a paper ticket that will get you through the turnstile.

    Paul Coutts is pencilled in to captain United's U23s in Tuesday's Sheffield derby at Bramall Lane, kick-off 7pm.

    Simon Moore, Kean Bryan, Jake Wright and Conor Washington could also feature against the Owls in the Professional Development League, with the Blades chasing a fourth straight home victory in all competitions.

    Admission is free for season ticket holders, otherwise it's £3 adults and £1 concessions.

    Blades (from): Moore, Dewhurst, Bennett, Ferguson, Belehouan, Bryan, Neal, Broadbent, Wright, Oure, York, Sheppeard, Coutts, Washington, Greaves, Boyes.
