Experience got the better of youth when a former Carlisle United man came up against one of the Blues' top prospects.

Striker Sam Fishburn, 17, faced ex-United goalkeeper Adam Collin in the Northern Premier League Premier Division on Saturday.

And Cumbrian Collin had the better of the afternoon as he helped his Basford United side to a 1-0 win over Fishburn's Lancaster City.

United's teenage loan striker, who was recently named Lancaster's player of the month after a prolific August, had his chances in the game.

But neither he nor Lancaster couldn't find a way past Collin.

And the 36-year-old former Carlisle and Workington Reds No1 also showed he has lost none of his old penalty-saving ability.

He kept out a second-half spot kick by the Dolly Blues' Robert Wilson to keep Basford's goal intact.

That ensured Brad Gascoigne's first-half header proved the winner for Steve Chettle's Basford, who are 11th in the table and Lancaster seventh.

Young Blues professional Fishburn has scored seven goals since joining Lancaster on a youth loan deal until January.

Collin, from Great Salkeld, joined Nottinghamshire club Basford this summer on a 12-month deal after a spell with Kettering.
