Loan Update: October 5

Posted by nickogs20 on October 6, 2010

International break it may be, but with eight United youngsters on loan in Leagues One and Two, there’s still something for Reds to keep an eye on at club level over the next fortnight – last night’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy action for starters, which saw involvement for five of our loanees on what turned out to be quite a dramatic evening.

September in Review: Eikrem takes Player of the Month honours

Posted by nickogs20 on October 5, 2010

It’s been another impressive month for United’s youngsters across all levels, leaving us with a tough decision when picking September’s star man. While a couple of players have made compelling cases with their goalscoring exploits, we’ve gone for a man who’s predominantly a creator – the reserves’ captain and playmaking midfield maestro Magnus Eikrem.

Reserves: United 4 Bolton 0 – Magnificent Magnus proves a point

Posted by nickogs20 on September 23, 2010


September 23rd 2010, 7pm
Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd - Bolton
Manchester United Reserves 4-0 Bolton Wanderers Reserves
Ajose 63, 69, 79
Cofie 90

 
United’s 100% record in this season’s Manchester Senior Cup continued as Nick Ajose’s quickfire second-half hattrick fired the Reds to a comfortable win over Bolton Wanderers at Moss Lane.

After a dour first forty-five minutes Ole Solskjaer’s side cut loose after the break, inspired by a magical display of playmaking from Magnus Eikrem, who was an architect in all four goals. United blew the visitors away in a 16-minute spell as Ajose continued his impressive season so far with a fine display of finishing and a first reserve treble, the equally prolific John Cofie completing the rout in injury time as he grabbed what has this season become his almost obligatory goal.

Reserves: United 1 Villa 4: Brilliant Bannan ruins Bebé’s big day out

Posted by nickogs20 on September 17, 2010


September 16th 2010, 7pm
Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd - Villa
Manchester United Reserves 1-4 Aston Villa Reserves
Ajose 78 Bannan 6, 43, 90 (pen)
Clark 37

 
The spotlight was firmly on Bebé as United got their league campaign underway, but it was Villa who took the points and their Scotland U21 midfielder Barry Bannan who grabbed the headlines as the visitors avenged their penalty shoot-out defeat in last season’s Premier Reserve League national play-off with a comprehensive 4-1 win at Moss Lane.

Bannan struck twice in the first half, a superb early free-kick and audacious 43rd minute chip sandwiching an assist for defender Ciaran Clark as the Villans took a commanding lead into the interval. United improved after the break and substitute Nick Ajose gave the Reds a glimmer of hope with just over ten minutes remaining, but Bannan secured the victory and possession of the match ball from the penalty spot after a Villa counter-attack ended with Nathan Delfouneso tumbling under Oliver Gill’s challenge.
