Oldham 0 United 3: Obertan makes Reds debut in MSC stroll

Brandy 21
Hewson 22
King 90+2

It would be fair to say United’s defence of the Manchester Senior Cup hasn’t been unduly challenging so far. Resounding 5-0 victors in the opening round-robin match against Bury, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side made it two from two at Hyde United’s Ewen Fields ground tonight with a comfortable 3-0 win over a game but ultimately outclassed Oldham Athletic.

The result was never in doubt once the Reds netted twice in as many minutes midway through the first half through Febian Brandy and Sam Hewson, and substitute Joshua King added some gloss to the scoreline in stoppage time at the end of the game with a fine goal on the counter attack. Further plus points for those of a United persuasion came in the form of the comebacks from injury of Rafael da Silva and summer signing Gabriel Obertan, who made his first appearance in the red shirt.

United 1 Bolton 0: More silverware for Solskjaer thanks to late Macheda winner

Manchester United Reserves 1-0 Bolton Wanderers Reserves
Macheda 86

United’s reserves have retained the Lancashire Senior Cup after Kiko Macheda’s winner four minutes from time settled a tense, closely-contested final at the County Ground in Leyland this evening.

With the game seemingly destined for penalties, the Reds’ Italian striker soared to meet Magnus Eikrem’s right-wing freekick and crash a great header against the crossbar before reacting quickest to nod home the rebound in predatory fashion, clinching an 11th LSC triumph in the club’s history.

Heartbreak for Reds trio as England come up just short

Posted by nickogs20 on August 3, 2009

Just as it was for the now departed Fraizer Campbell earlier in the summer, it was a case of so near and yet so far for United’s England U19 trio Danny Welbeck, Danny Drinkwater and Matt James yesterday after the Young Lions fell at the final hurdle of the UEFA U19 European Championships to the hosts Ukraine.

Bolton 0 United 1: Tošić on target as Reds retain the Manchester Senior Cup

Bolton Wanderers Reserves 0-1 Manchester United Reserves
Tošić 8

The first of what we all hope will be several trophies is in the cabinet this May after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reserve side overcame Bolton Wanderers by a goal to nil at the Reebok Stadium this evening to keep a firm hold on the Manchester Senior Cup. An early deflected freekick from Zoran Tošić, the Serbian’s first goal in United colours, was ultimately enough to hand the Reds victory in a repeat of last year’s final, although both sides could and should have added to the scoreline, goalkeepers Ben Amos and Adam Bogdan playing a massive part in them not doing so.

Wigan 4 United 5: Sensational comeback sees Reds edge nine-goal thriller

Posted by nickogs20 on February 18, 2009

Wigan Athletic Man Utd
Wigan Athletic Reserves 4-5 Manchester United Reserves
Cywka 33, 54 Welbeck 11, 69
Kupisz 45 Macheda 62, 67
Holt 58 (pen) Martin 80

It’s been a relatively sedate reserve season so far – lots of tight, cagey affairs, a smattering of 0-0 draws and not too many goals. Typical then that the one time the fixture lists conspired to have the first-team in action at the same time, the attention-starved second string were taking part in a quite exhilarating clash with Wigan at Robin Park. Nine goals, eight yellow cards, one red, penalties given and not given… this one had it all, including – ultimately – an astonishing comeback that clinched a first win for the Reds in this fixture since the Latics joined the Premer League North in 2005.
