Youth Alliance Cup: Shrewsbury Town 1 Walsall 1

12:55 pm Saturday, 15 September 2018  
Walsall's Under-18s were back in EFL Youth Alliance Cup - Northern Group 3 action on Saturday morning as they made the short trip across the border to take on Shrewsbury Town Under-18s, in their second outing of the competition.
Walsall haven't been in action for two weeks and went into today's match hoping to build upon their most recent Youth Alliance outing, which saw them take a point from visitors, Tranmere Rovers.

Both the Saddlers and the Shrews opened their Alliance Cup Group 3 campaigns with 2-1 defeats as Doncaster Rovers and Lincoln City grabbed opening day victories earlier this season.

Graham Biggs' Saddlers have drawn two and lost two of their opening Alliance games, whilst Eric Ramsay's Shrewsbury have won two, drawn two, and lost one of their five league games, and arrived at the match following a goalless draw with Fleetwood Town.

Walsall started the game strongly and went on to open the scoring from the penalty spot as striker Alfie Bates slotted the ball past Salop stopper Jack Atkinson, with around thirty-four minutes on the clock.

Shrewsbury went on to level the scores ten minutes into the second-half as Archie Elmore was afforded too much space in front of goal as he found the back of Josh Griffiths' net from close range, following Rhys Davies' whipped cross.

There were no further goals as the Saddlers and Shrews shared the spoils. A point on the board for each, with just one group game remaining.

1 - 1
Elmore (56')
Bates PEN (34')
