Dale under 18s continued their unbeaten run on Saturday with a 1-1 draw away a strong Port Vale side.
The youth team found themselves behind after Port Vale opened the scoring, however a goal from Andy Cannon ensured a point for the youngsters.
The result makes it three wins and draw in their last four outings.
Manager Chris Beech said: “On a fantastic playing surface we played against a strong and organised Port Vale team. After hitting the bar and with the opportunities created, we could consider ourselves a little unlucky not to gain all three points. Overall I am very pleased with the attitude of the players, particularly in the second half.
“However having said that, we know as a team that we have more to give. We will work hard this week to improve as we prepare to face Port Vale again in the league on Saturday.”
