Monday March 14th, 1892: Chesterfield Town 4 - Sheffield United 3.
This match was the cause of great excitement even before The Spireites beat their Sheffield neighbours, but it was the fact that a good proportion of the United side were ex-Staveley men that caused that, as much as the fact that they now played for The Cutlers.

After the game, the Sheffield papers were careful to stress that this was a United "A" team, although it contained United's first-team defence and the great "Nudger" Needham; only six of the eleven had appeared in the United Reserves team that won the Sheffield & Hallamshire FA Cup the previous Saturday. So while it may not have been United's first-choice eleven, it hadn't turned up to muck about, either.

The report appeared in the Derbyshire Times of Saturday, March 19th, 1892, and this copy of it was found on the excellent British Newspaper Archive site.
