Slazenger 4ths are a much-changed team this season, but the blend of youth and experience worked well against a strong Bradford side.
Two well-matched teams played some good, open hockey and Slazenger passed the ball well from the start with youngsters Phil Midgley and Alex McCann unfortunate not to score from some of their early efforts.
But it was Bradford who opened up the scoring when the home side failed to move the ball effectively from their own 16-yard hit.
Slazenger came back well after the break and equalised with a penalty flick after Dave Smyth’s shot was stopped by a defenders foot on the line.
Bradford pressed hard for a winning goal but some excellent goalkeeping from Lee Secker thwarted their every effort.
In the end a draw was a fair result and Slazenger were encouraged by the performance of all their younger players particularly man of the match Phil Midgley.
