After seeing their reserve counterparts crowned champions on Tuesday night, Paul McGuinness’ Under-18 side took a big step towards a title of their own as they moved six points clear at the top of Barclays Premier Academy League Group C with a comfortable 3-0 win at Stoke City.

A second-minute strike from in-form skipper Nicky Ajose gave the Reds a lead they would never look like relinquishing, and further goals from Paul Pogba and John Cofie provided a scoreline that accurately reflected United’s superiority and delivered a second convincing away win in the space of four days.

Fixture frustration for U18s and Reserves

Posted by nickogs20 on November 13, 2009

Both Paul McGuinness’ U18 side and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second string have had their upcoming games postponed.

Tomorrow’s Premier Academy League game with Stoke City has been called off after inclement weather this past week caused the pitch at the Potters’ Clayton Wood base to become waterlogged. Both teams have a free weekend at the end of this month but the short notice and probable Youth Cup considerations will likely mean the fixture will instead be re-arranged for some time in the spring. As usual, when we find out the new date, we’ll let you know.

Meanwhile the Reserves’ Manchester Senior Cup clash with Stockport County, originally scheduled for Monday night at Ashton United’s Hurst Cross ground, has been re-arranged for Thursday December 17th at County’s request. With Hull away next up on the fixture list on November 24th, Solskjaer’s side will have endured a frustrating three weeks without a game by that time.
