United’s academy side slumped to a disappointing away defeat as Bolton’s youngsters proved too strong on a wintry morning at Lostock Hall Farm.

The Reds had their chances and struck the crossbar twice, but a physically imposing Wanderers side generally held the upper hand throughout and Jack Sampson’s deflected effort in the second half was enough to give them a deserved win and complete a rare league double over Paul McGuinness’ team.

Reserves: Bolton 1 United 3 – Reds return to action with impressive win

County Ground, Leyland

Bolton Man Utd
Bolton Wanderers Reserves 1-3 Manchester United Reserves
Blakeman 32 W Keane 37
Stewart 69
Thorpe 76

 
United’s second string returned from a month without a game to record their first league win of the season, coming back from a goal down to beat Bolton in terrible conditions at the County Ground.

An experienced Trotters XI featuring a number of first team squad members took the lead through Adam Blakeman just after the half-hour mark, but Will Keane provided an almost instant response for the Reds before second-half strikes from Cameron Stewart and Tom Thorpe secured all three points for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Reserves: United 4 Bolton 0 – Magnificent Magnus proves a point

Man Utd Bolton
Manchester United Reserves 4-0 Bolton Wanderers Reserves
Ajose 63, 69, 79
Cofie 90

 
United’s 100% record in this season’s Manchester Senior Cup continued as Nick Ajose’s quickfire second-half hattrick fired the Reds to a comfortable win over Bolton Wanderers at Moss Lane.

After a dour first forty-five minutes Ole Solskjaer’s side cut loose after the break, inspired by a magical display of playmaking from Magnus Eikrem, who was an architect in all four goals. United blew the visitors away in a 16-minute spell as Ajose continued his impressive season so far with a fine display of finishing and a first reserve treble, the equally prolific John Cofie completing the rout in injury time as he grabbed what has this season become his almost obligatory goal.

U18s: Bolton 1 United 1 – Reds made to wait as Trotters halt title charge

Posted by nickogs20 on May 1, 2010


May 1st 2010, 11am
Lostock Hall Farm, Bolton

Bolton Man Utd
Bolton Wanderers U18s 1-1 Manchester United U18s
O’Halloran 11 W Keane 19

 
United’s title-chasing U18s had to endure a frustrating morning at Lostock Farm as a stubborn, resilient Bolton side paid no heed to the form book and denied the Reds the three points required to clinch the Premier Academy League Group C title.

Bottom of the table and on a run of five straight defeats, the Trotters rocked United with a dynamic, physical start and an early goal from Michael O’Halloran. A scrappy effort from Will Keane got the league leaders back on terms after only eight minutes in arrears, but despite controlling the rest of the game and going close on a number of occasions, Paul McGuinness’ side couldn’t find the goal they needed to be crowned champions with a game to spare.

Reserves: United 1 Bolton 0 – Reds see off familiar foe

Posted by nickogs20 on January 29, 2010


Januuary 28th 2009, 7pm
Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Bolton
Manchester United Reserves 1-0 Bolton Wanderers Reserves
Gray 44

 
If familiarity really does breed contempt, these two sides are going to be absolutely sick of each other by the end of the season. United’s second string took on their Bolton Wanderers counterparts for the fourth (and not necessarily final) time this term and successfully avenged December’s penalty shootout defeat to the Trotters with a 1-0 win at Moss Lane.

In a game that never got close to matching the drama, excitement and goal tally of that last meeting, it took a goal from the unlikely figure of David Gray on the brink of half-time to break the deadlock and decide a contest that was marred by the incessant Manchester rain. The Reds could and should have secured a more comfortable margin of victory, but just the one goal was ultimately enough to take the three points and leapfrog Liverpool at the top of the Premier Reserve League North.

Reserves: Bolton 2 United 2 (Bolton win 3-2 on pens) – Reds endure more penalty pain in the MSC

Posted by nickogs20 on December 14, 2009


December 14th 2009, 7pm
County Ground, Leyland

Bolton Man Utd
Bolton Wanderers Reserves 2-2 Manchester United Reserves
Mooy 12 Pogba 11
Obadeyi 50 Ajose 54

 
BOLTON WANDERERS WIN 3-2 ON PENALTIES

Sheridan MISSED Hewson SCORED
Blakeman MISSED Norwood SCORED
Harsanyi SCORED Tunnicliffe MISSED
Eckersley SCORED Pogba MISSED
Mooy SCORED Stewart MISSED

 
 
Deja vu was the order of the day at the County Ground in Leyland as, for the second season running, United’s reserves lost a Manchester Senior Cup tie to Bolton Wanderers after a dramatic penalty shootout.

A youthful United second string took an early lead through debutant Paul Pogba, only for Aaron Mooy to immediately level for the hosts. In a hectic second half that sequence was reversed, with Temitope Obadeyi putting Bolton 2-1 up for all of four minutes before Nicky Ajose’s sweetly-struck response. In truth the Reds were somewhat fortunate to take the game to penalties after Wanderers dominated the second 45 minutes, but once the shootout was underway, and the home side had missed their first two penalties, it looked for all the world that Ole Solskjaer’s side would prevail. Bolton keeper Robert Lainton had other ideas however, saving superbly from Ryan Tunnicliffe, Pogba and Cameron Stewart to engineer a remarkable turnaround and inflict more shootout misery on United’s reserves, who have now lost four of them in the last 13 months.

U18s: United 5 Bolton 1 – Reds run riot with sensational second-half performance

Posted by nickogs20 on November 10, 2009

Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Bolton
Manchester United U18s 5-1 Bolton Wanderers U18s
W. Keane 28 Sampson 85
Morrison 52
Tunnicliffe 65
Cole 75
Pogba 90 (pen)

 
 
A week in the Maltese sun clearly had the desired effect on United’s U18 side as they thrashed a strong Bolton Wanderers side 5-1 at Carrington to move into second place in Academy League Group C.

One of the form teams in academy football, the visitors arrived at Carrington in optimistic mood and gave pretty much as good as they got in the first 45 minutes, only to be blown away after the break by a scintillating display of attacking football that saw Ravel Morrison and Ryan Tunnicliffe add to Will Keane’s first half opener before Larnell Cole and Paul Pogba completed the scoring with their first U18 goals either side of a bizarre late consolation goal for the Trotters’ Jack Sampson.
