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.

Preston 0 United 4: Reserves turn on the second-half style en route to another final

United may have suffered semi-final heartbreak at Wembley yesterday, but no such fate or drama awaited the reserves today as a stirring second-half display saw them comfortably overcome Preston by four goals to nil on a beautifully sunny afternoon at Deepdale. After dominating a tepid first-half without overly threatening the Preston goal, the Reds found their shooting boots in the second half and simply overpowered a Lilywhites side who worked hard but were ultimately out of their depth.

Goals from Danny Drinkwater, Lee Martin, sub Nicky Ajose and an absolute screamer from Matt James sent Ole Solskjaer’s side through to a second consecutive LSC Final (against either Blackburn or Bolton) in some style, and there was further good news for Reds fans in the form of Wes Brown’s return to action after a long injury lay-off, the England defender completing nearly an hour at right-back.

United’s reserves extended their current unbeaten record in all competitions (home and away) to eight games and moved back into second place in the Premier Reserve League North with a thoroughly convincing 2-0 victory against their Everton counterparts at Moss Lane this evening. Early goals from Danny Drinkwater – officially his first of the season – and Ritchie de Laet – his first for United – stunned Everton, and by half-time it really should have been four or five, Zoran Tošić hitting the bar twice amongst a number of other chances for the Reds. The visitors came into the game late on with first-team striker James Vaughan looking dangerous, but the result of the match was never really in doubt.
