Byline: ANTHONY VICKERS

GUISBOROUGH Town fought out a creditable 2-2 draw with Boro's rising starlets.

The Northern League division two side hosted the cream of Boro's prestigious Academy, the conveyor belt that has churned out a string of big name professional heroes.

Spirited Town leveled just before the break through top scorer David Onions.

Boro's next generation regained the lead just before the hour mark as Jarrett Rivers struck but again Town responded well and equalised late on as Onions headed his second goal of the game.
