STAFFORD Rangers Youth surrendered their 100 per cent record in a 1-1 draw against battling Shamblers Youth on Sunday.
The Boro can have few complaints about the final scoreline, both teams having struggled in a very forgettable first half.
Alex Hannan did have a couple of first half chances for Rangers, but he headed wide with the first, while the second was kept out by the Shamblers keeper.
Rangers manager Chris Curtis rang the changes at half-time but this failed to ignite the pace and tempo that Boro normally operate at.
With Rangers’ frustrations growing, Shamblers capitalised with a well struck free kick into the bottom corner of the net.
However Rangers were soon back in the match as a drive from the edge of the box was handled on the goal-line. Curtis put away the resultant penalty, as Shamblers were reduced to ten men.
Curtis again went close to a winner for Rangers, but Bradley Moorhead denied him and the Boro, not for the first time in this match as the Marston Road side dropped their first points of the season.
