Readstone United Under 10s stayed in front as they drew their top of the table clash at Huncoat United.

The storm clouds held off long enough to play this match in the dry and often sunny Autumn weather.

The game got off to a nervous start, but only a couple of saves from Pilkington in the Readstone goal kept the score at 0-0.

Chances did fall to Thorpe and Leaver but the Huncoat goalkeeper also saved well.

The second half saw Readstone start the brighter as an early effort from Danson flew past the left hand post

In the final few minutes Huncoat applied the pressure but man of the match Barrow let nothing get past him.

A weaving run by Leaver in the last minute caused a final chance but his shot was saved.
