U18’s confirmed in third place
Posted by nickogs20 on April 16, 2008
With just a handful of fixtures left to play in Academy Group C and only 8th place left to squabble over, United’s U18’s are confirmed as finishing in third place. The point secured in Newcastle left Crewe needing an 8-goal winning margin in their match at Derby to overhaul the young Reds, never a realistic ask and so it proved – a 4-0 victory the best they could manage.
The next football for the United Academy kids (barring participation in the upcoming reserve cup matches) will be in the BlueStars Youth Cup on April 30th/May 1st, where United are in a group with Villarreal, Partizan Belgrade, Grasshoppers Zurich and FC Basel. More on that nearer the time.
