Short trip to Altrincham next up for the second string

Posted by nickogs20 on July 18, 2008

After last week’s win over Blue Square North Burscough, tomorrow sees the Reds play the first of two games against Blue Square Premier opposition. Oxford United are to come next weekend but the short journey to the reserves’ former home, Altrincham FC’s Moss Lane ground, is next on the agenda. United won 2-1 at Moss Lane almost exactly a year ago with goals from Kieran Lee and Sean Evans.

Ole Solskjaer’s squad will be bolstered by the return of Sam Hewson and Gary Woods from first team duty last weekend, but much of the interest in tomorrow’s game will be concerning Fábio and Rafael. The Brazilian twins were on the bench last week in Burscough but weren’t named in the matchday squad, and their first appearance in the red shirt (or white/black as the case may be tomorrow) is eagerly anticipated by many.

Ticket prices for tomorrow match are £7 adults and £2 Under 14’s/OAP’s. Getting to Moss Lane from Manchester is exceptionally easy – Altrincham is of course served by the Metrolink, as well as regular trains and buses, and Moss Lane is a ten-minute walk from the central interrchange. You can view directions here. We will of course have a full match report on United Youth after the game.

    Sorry, my bad – the game’s a 3pm kick-off. It’s not being shown online anywhere unfortunately, there might be some highlights shown on MUTV at some point.

  3. Another great article. I’m so happy I found this site. It’s good to read about the youth team as nobody really covers their matches at all. Great job you do. I still didn’t email you about the link, lol…..lazy bitch huh ….. I see you added me. Have you got a little button I can add to my page for you guys or shall I just use text ?

    Carliona – I’ve not got a button yet, will have to try and summon some artistic ability and create one. Text will do fine for now :)
