Altrincham FC 0-2 Manchester United XI
Dudgeon 13
own goal 89

Australia’s cricketers may have escaped with a draw in the third Ashes test yesterday but there was no such luck for captain Ricky Ponting’s adopted football team at Moss Lane this evening, as Altrincham ultimately went down 2-0 to a United reserve side playing a rare away game at their usual home. A bumper crowd of 1772 guaranteed the hosts a useful payday and got to see a closely-contested game between the Blue Square Premier side and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United second string, who just about merited the victory earned by goals from Joe Dudgeon and the unfortunate James Smith, who put through his own net with a minute remaining.

Reserves – Boro clash postponed

Posted by nickogs20 on November 20, 2008

MiddlesbroughNext Thursday’s reserve fixture between United and Middlesbrough at Moss Lane has been postponed. With the Reds taking on Chelsea that same night in the third round of the FA Youth Cup, a number of reserve squad members (and many regular reserves spectators) will be at Old Trafford for that game instead, prompting the decision to reschedule the Boro game for a later date (as yet undecided).

The next competitive fixture for Ole Solskjaer’s second string will now be the following week, when the Reds travel to the North-East to face Sunderland on December 3rd.

United 0 Bolton 0: Shootout setback for Solskjaer’s side

Man Utd Celtic
Manchester United Reserves 0-0 Bolton Wanderers Reserves

Bolton Wanderers win 9-8 on penalties

A drab and largely uneventful ninety minutes was followed by a tense quarter of an hour as Bolton Wanderers edged a lengthy penalty shootout to take all three points at Moss Lane. The Reds were left with the consolation of one point for their efforts and the knowledge that they were comfortably the better side, but will be rueing a lacklustre attacking performance that saw few chances created and the handful that were go begging.
