Boxing Day football is one the great traditions of the English game but with the continued wintry weather rendering this year’s slate of fixtures something of a damp (or icy) squib, only three of United’s loanees had the chance to run off the turkey and trimmings this weekend…

As far as senior debuts go, scoring late on to earn your side a point against the league leaders isn’t too shabby – especially if you’re a defender. Step forward Scott Wootton…

Trafford Training Centre, Carrington
|Manchester United U18s||3-2||Blackburn Rovers U18s|
|Morrison 28||–||MacLaren 4|
|Pogba 76||–||O’Connor 57|
|W.Keane 90+4 (pen)|
Will Keane’s injury time penalty grabbed United all three points against Blackburn as a terrific game at Carrington ended in dramatic and controversial fashion.
United fell behind twice to goals by Jamie MacLaren and Anthony O’Connor but fought back each time, levelling through Ravel Morrison and Paul Pogba to set up a tense finale. The Reds’ chances of securing a win looked to have disappeared after they had a clear penalty for a foul on John Cofie turned down in the final minute, but justice was done deep into time added on as Michele Fornasier’s volley was blocked by a hand and Keane stepped up to coolly send the keeper the wrong way with practically the last kick of the match.

Leigh Sports Village, Leigh
|Blackburn Rovers Reserves||2-2||Manchester United Reserves|
|Roberts||Brady 34 (pen)|
|Hoilett 73 (pen)||Eikrem 90+4|
For the third consecutive day a United side drew 2-2, Magnus Eikrem’s late late strike earning United’s reserves a deserved share of the points against a strong Blackburn XI at Leigh Sports Village.
A largely disappointing game sprung to life ten minutes before the break as Robbie Brady converted a penalty won by Ravel Morrison, with Rovers keeper Frankie Fielding keeping his side in the game with a series of fine saves thereafter. The hosts weathered that storm and turned things around in the second half, a goal apiece from strike pairing Jason Roberts and David Hoilett – the latter from the spot – giving Blackburn a lead they looked like holding onto until Reds skipper Eikrem popped up in the fourth minute of stoppage time with a brilliant equaliser, just reward for a youthful United side that more than matched their more experienced opposition.

Trafford Training Centre, Carrington
|Manchester United U18s||6-1||Blackburn Rovers U18s|
|King 10||–||Potts (pen) 83|
|Brady 23 (pen)||–||–|
With last month’s humbling FA Youth Cup exit at the hands of today’s visitors still fresh in the memory, United’s U18s were presented with a chance for revenge at Carrington this morning and took it in some style, ending a run of three games without a goal by putting six past a shellshocked Rovers side and seizing top spot in Academy League Group C.
The Reds were the more clinical side in a closely-contested first half, establishing a two goal lead thanks to Joshua King and Robbie Brady, before really cutting loose after the break with further goals from Larnell Cole, Paul Pogba, Etzaz Hussain and Will Keane, with Blackburn’s sole consolation coming from a late and dubious penalty converted by former United schoolboy Michael Potts.

Ewood Park, Blackburn
|Blackburn Rovers U18s||3-0||Manchester United U18s|
|Lowe 38, 87||–||–|
High on confidence after six straight wins and impressive Youth Cup progress against Birmingham and Burnley, United’s U18s were brought crashing back down to earth at Ewood Park, as a 3-0 reverse saw them exit this year’s competition at the fifth round stage.
Whilst Blackburn were flattered somewhat by a scoreline that scarcely reflected a match that had been even and closely-fought for the most part, there’s no doubt that Rovers deserved to go through. The first goal was always going to be crucial, and it went to the hosts just before the break, Jason Lowe capitalising on some slack defending from a controversially-awarded corner. Paul McGuinness’ side fell further behind twenty minutes from time as Rovers skipper Grant Hanley doubled his side’s lead, and when Conor Devlin saved a late penalty only to see Lowe net the rebound, the Reds knew it wasn’t to be their day.

Moss Lane, Altrincham
|Manchester United Reserves||3-0||Blackburn Rovers Reserves|
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Reserves kept up their 100% home record and moved back to the summit of the Premier Reserve League North this evening by defeating their Blackburn Rovers counterparts 3-0 at Moss Lane.
United were good value for the win, but were made to wait until the final ten minutes of the game to clinch all three points and give the scoreline some gloss. Magnus Eikrem’s superb 18th minute freekick had given the Reds an early lead, but despite proceeding to dominate the remainder of the match, it wasn’t until Febian Brandy rose highest to head home a Zoran Tošić corner on 80 minutes that the points were made safe. Tošić then rounded things off nicely with a well-struck effort from 20 yards inside injury time.
