Blades Legends 3-3 Fulham All Stars - report

22 May 2016

A last-minute penalty earned the Blades a creditable draw in Sunday's Legends fixture against the Fulham All Stars.


A crowd of over 4,000 was inside Bramall Lane for the charitable fixture, which saw a number of former Blades favourites grace the hallowed turf once more.


The Fulham team included Gogglebox's George Gilbey, Rizzle Kicks' Harvey Sylvester and comedian Jack Whitehall, who conceded the last-minute penalty for a foul on Chris Morgan!


Stadium announcer Gary Sinclair, on for a late cameo, scored the penalty, following on from goals by Michael Tonge and Leigh Bromby.


Former Blade Barry Hayles was the star for Fulham, having a hand in all three of the visitors' goals. He laid off for Paul Peschisolido to score the first and forced Bromby into an own goal for the second. Hayles then scored the third, a 40-yard lob against Peschisolido, who swapped sides at half-time and played in the Blades goal.


World Cup referee Howard Webb officiated and Hollywood actor and Blades fan Sean Bean was the United manager, ably assisted by Tony Currie.


A shoot-out closed proceedings with Leigh Bromby scoring the winning penalty.


The United team: Leigh Walker, Leigh Bromby, Alan Wright, Bob Booker, Chris Morgan, David Holdsworth, Michael Brown, Mark Todd, Tony Agana, Brian Deane, Carl Asaba, Alan Quinn, Jon Harley, Richard Cresswell, Michael Tonge, Paul Peschisolido, Chris Armstrong and Rob Kozluk.
