United 2 Boro 0: Norwood double makes the difference

Manchester United U18s 2-0 Middlesbrough U18s
Norwood 5, 29

A first-half brace from captain Oliver Norwood was enough this afternoon to earn United’s U18s a first home win since January. Paul McGuinness’ side had much the better of the first half and, like last week, turned that early superiority into goals, with Norwood making an early breakthrough via an extremely helpful deflection. The skipper’s second goal was all his own work, a beautifully-struck freekick from 25 yards out that gave the goalkeeper no chance. Unlike last week though, the Reds this time held onto their lead. The visitors had the better of things after the break but wasted the few genuine chances that came their way, and otherwise struggled to break down a resolute United rearguard.
