Sheffield Daily Telegraph – Tuesday 28 August 1928
Denaby United 1 Notts County Reserves 1
Denaby United’s now ground improvements were appreciated by a good crowd for the opening home game with Notts County Res. last night.
A draw was a fair reflex of the game, for, whilst Notts County displayed more artistry, Denaby did more attacking, only to shoot poorly.
Keeling, unmarked, ran away to score for the visitors after ten minutes, and two melees in quick succession in the Notts goal ended in Dalby equalising after 15 minutes. In this half Childs, a Notts back, damaged a shoulder, but played throughout.
Clegg (Denaby) was the outstanding player in a match in which there was too much keenness.
