Hallam 0 Sheffield United 4

JOE Ironside and Danny Philliskirk both scored twice as Sheffield United beat Hallam at Sandygate last night.

The youngsters applied the finishing touches to a committed display which preserved the League One club’s unbeaten record during pre-season.

Ironside poked home at the near post with 10 minutes gone. Hallam’s Josh Branch made several smart saves before Ironside doubled the lead

Philliskirk’s fine work had laid the platform for his first but, on this occasion, Jordan Chappell was responsible for forging the opening.

Steve Wankiewicz tested George Long’s reactions from range before Philliskirk claimed a brace.
