THE Derbyshire derby saw honours end even as North Midlands Under 19s Division Three side Buxton and Division Two team Matlock Town drew 1-1 in their Mini Shield Group D encounter at Silverlands.

The game was a tense and evenly-contested affair with Danny Hopkins scoring for Buxton and Jordan Holland replying for the Gladiators.

The two teams meet again this week at Matlock’s Reynolds Stadium in the Matlock Memorial Shield.
