United 4 Newcastle 2: Free-scoring U18s bag another four in storming comeback

Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Newcastle
Manchester United U18s 4-2 Newcastle United U18s
Norwood 3 Adjei 19
King 47 Inman 42
Eikrem 76
Wootton 84

 
United’s academy side scored four last weekend at Leeds, but also let four in at the other end. No such trade-off this afternoon at Carrington, as a terrific second half display saw Paul McGuinness’ side turn around a 2-1 deficit and pick up another four goal haul. In a rain-lashed first-half, Oliver Norwood’s freakish third minute strike gave the Reds an early lead, but goals from Samuel Adjei and Bradden Inman handed Newcastle a half-time lead that their performance in the first 45 had merited. A different United side emerged for a sunny and dry second half and dominated proceedings, equalising swiftly through sub Joshua King and adding further goals from Magnus Eikrem (an absolute stunner) and Scott Wootton as they moved within a point of securing second spot in Group C of the Premier Academy League.

    Eikrem’s shot was a peach, but still think he should’ve passed… Just missed the first goal behind all the brollies, but heard Ollie’s dad call it a cross?

    If it was a shot it was incredibly audacious… not impossible with Norwood but I’d be surprised if he meant to go for goal.

    Can some one give me status rapport on Etzaz Hussain ?

  4. Raff said

    Why Petrucci didn`t play ?

  5. Tone said

    Petrucci is still injured. Hussein, I believe, played for the under 16’s, who won 4-0. Don’t know the scorers, eventhough the played on the next pitch…

  6. Joe Armstrong said

    The U/16’s won 4-0 with goals from Lingard, Hussain and Reuben Noble-Lazarus a triallist from Barnsley.

    Hussain is playing really well and recently joined the U/18 team for the Claudio Sassi Tournament in Italy.

    He has settled in naturally and often runs the games at the U/16 level.

    Great website, keep up the good work!
    I see Amos played in this game, any news on Devlin? It seems hes pulled out of the N.I U-19 squad for a friendly this Wednesday in Belfast. Injury perhaps?
