Owls Reserves Earn Valiant Point
Stocksbridge Park Steels
SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY picked up only their second reserve point of the season with a 1-1 draw with Port Vale at Stocksbridge Park Steel's Look Local Stadium.
The Owls, who included Tommy Spurr, Mark Reynolds and Liam Palmer in the starting eleven took a first half lead through trialist James Gray.
The lively looking striker chased down a punt with Joseph Davies and snuck in to lob keeper Chris Martin.
Gray was one of two trialists in the team, with Italian central defender Marco Perazzo playing alongside Spurr in the centre of defence.
Vale, though, who only named youngsters apart from goalkeeper Martin got a leveller in the second half through Liam Rice's close range header, after Arron Jameson couldn't hold onto Ryan Lloyd's shot.
The Owls had had chances to stretch their lead, but Jack Poulton's long range volley unluckily bounced back off the post.
Trialists Gray and Perazzo impressed. Gray looked a neat little player with a good touch, whilst Perrazo looked like a solid defender and strong in the air.
OWLS: JAMESON, BARNETT, PERAZZO (CANHAM), SPURR, REYNOLDS, TUMILTY, PALMER, ECKHARDT (PINHORN), POULTON, GRAY, HUSBANDS (KYLE).
