Tranmere 1 United XI 1: Honours even after Lingard leveller

McChrystal 4 Lingard 34

United’s reserves continued their hectic pre-season programme with a creditable – if somewhat dour – 1-1 draw against League One Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park.

The hosts took an early lead through Mark McChrystal but Jesse Lingard’s strike brought the Reds level before half-time. With Warren Joyce’s side playing their third game in four days, fatigue was an obvious factor as an uneventful second 45 largely passed both teams by and the game drifted towards an always-inevitable draw.

Norwood 54

Oliver Norwood capped off a worthwhile visit to Scotland for United’s Reserves with a sublime curling effort to beat a competitive Ayr United side 1-0 at Somerset Park.

After beating Spartans 7-1 twenty-four hours earlier, there where high hopes for more goals from a United side that contained experienced first team players Darron Gibson and Tomasz Kuszczak. However, Norwood’s goal on 54 minutes was all that separated the two sides.

Cleverley’s U21 bow headlines long list of international callups

Posted by nickogs20 on September 3, 2009

As ever during international breaks, the main focus of fans and media is on the many United first-teamers away representing their countries in the next week or so (an alarming 16 away with senior national sides this time around), but there’s an equally lengthy list of young players in action in various age groups and competitions to keep track of. Here’s a quick rundown on who, where and when…

International roundup (11/12 August): Tošić at the double; Brandy/Cleverley stake claims for U20 World Cup; trio make U21 debuts

Posted by nickogs20 on August 14, 2009

The much-maligned early season international fixtures may frustrate and worry club managers and fans alike, but they do offer a valuable opportunity for a number of young players across the continent and the globe to take the first steps towards establishing themselves in various age-group national teams for the long season ahead. World Cups at senior and youth level, the annual European finals at U19 and U17 level, another round of Euro U21 qualification – it all starts again here, and unsurprisingly there was plenty of United involvement over the past couple of days.

Gibson signs on as Ecks checks out

Posted by nickogs20 on July 15, 2009

Today was a day of contract resolution – and things only went half United’s way. Sir Alex Ferguson’s delight at Darron Gibson putting pen to paper on a new three-year contract was tempered by the news that Richard Eckersley had turned down the club’s offer of a new deal and instead exercised his right to move, as a free agent, to Premier League new boys Burnley.

United 1 Newcastle 1: Reserves frustrated as wonder-strike earns the Toon a point

Posted by nickogs20 on April 23, 2009

April 23rd 2009, 7pm
Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Newcastle
Manchester United Reserves 1-1 Newcastle United Reserves
C. Evans 8 Danquah 19
Fábio missed pen 78

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reserve side secured a top three finish in the Barclays Premier Reserve League North – with one game to go – at Moss Lane this evening, but saw a Newcastle wondergoal and a Fábio da Silva penalty miss frustrate their bid to clinch second place in the table. Corry Evans’ first goal of the season put the Reds into a deserved early lead, but United were rocked on their heels ten minutes later as, against the run of play, the visitors levelled things up thanks to a sensational strike from distance by Frank Wiafe Danquah.

Newcastle were unfortunate to see a perfectly good headed goal from Nile Ranger chalked off for a mysterious foul, but it was United who looked the more likely winners as the game wore on, and when Lee Martin was felled in the box by Ben Tozer with just over ten minutes remaining, they had their chance. Unfortunately, Fábio’s spot-kick was kept out by Tim Krul, and despite late chances for both sides, a winner wasn’t to be forthcoming.

Rasper from the returning Rodrigo seals dominant derby display

Manchester City Man Utd
Manchester City Reserves 0-3 Manchester United Reserves
Cleverley 13
Gibson 57 (pen)
Possebon 63

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reserve side continued their impressive recovery from the opening day defeat to Wigan with a third win on the bounce, this one a resounding 3-0 defeat of their table-topping local rivals at Ewen Fields. Goals from Tom Cleverley, Darron Gibson (from a penalty conceded by City’s Shaleum Logan, who was subsequently red-carded) and the fit-again Rodrigo Possebon were enough to inflict a first defeat of the campaign on City after a niggly ninety minutes.
