Family affair - part two

17 July 2012

Another family with a keen interest in the Blades first pre-season outing at Ilkeston Town - will be the Maguire family.


United's Harry is poised to come up against brother Joe, who recently signed a new one-year contract with Town after completing his apprenticeship with Scunthorpe United.


Prior to being at Glanford Park, Joe had four years with the Blades and he also represented Harrogate Town before they went into liquidation.


On the second installment of Wednesday's family affair, Harry insists he is determined to have the bragging rights over his older sibling:


"It will be interesting to say the least, I watched him when I could last season and Joe did really well as did the Gaffer's son (Laurie).


"Obviously I see and speak to Joe everyday and there has been plenty of banter. All the family will be there and hopefully United will come out on top.


"I am sure the banter will be non-stop before and afterwards but during the game we will both be focused on our jobs."


Looking ahead to the forthcoming trip to Malta, Maguire added: "It will be tough, but we know from last summer how beneficial it is in the long run and hopefully we can hit the ground running against Burton."
