Reserves: Burnley 0 United 1 – Clarets KO’d by late Cole goal

Posted by nickogs20 on April 30, 2010


April 29th 2010, 7pm
Turf Moor, Burnley

Burnley Man Utd
Burnley Reserves 0-1 Manchester United Reserves
Cole 90+1

 
United’s Reserves wrapped up their 2009/10 league programme in fitting style as a late late goal from Larnell Cole secured a 1-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

After 90 rainy and goalless minutes in a game that certainly lived up to its billing as an end-of-season dead rubber, some slick football from the Reds and a wonderfully composed finish by Cole saw the champions grab all three points, rounding off the campaign on a high and boosting confidence ahead of Monday’s Premier Reserve League playoff against Aston Villa.

Reserves: Wigan 1 United 0 – Youthful reserves lose to the Latics

Posted by nickogs20 on April 27, 2010


April 26th 2010, 7pm
Robin Park, Wigan

Wigan Man Utd
Wigan Athletic Reserves 1-0 Manchester United Reserves
Kupisz 63

 
After a previously unbeaten 2010, United’s Reserves followed last week’s cup exit at the hands of Manchester City with a second successive defeat, losing 1-0 to Wigan after being forced to play the second half with just ten men.

While the defeat to City came after a disappointingly lacklustre performance, a slightly makeshift United XI acquitted themselves much more respectably at Robin Park and were unfortunate to end up on the losing side after having the better of the game even after Ritchie de Laet’s red card just before half-time. The Belgian defender received his marching orders after an off the ball clash with Latics forward Tomasz Kupisz, who rubbed salt in the wound when scoring what proved to be the winner just after the hour mark, and despite hitting the woodwork twice, the recently crowned champions couldn’t quite find the goal to preserve their long unbeaten league run.

U18s: United 6 Blackburn 1 – Reds get revenge as Rovers are routed

Posted by nickogs20 on February 21, 2010


February 20th 2010, 11am
Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Blackburn
Manchester United U18s 6-1 Blackburn Rovers U18s
King 10 Potts (pen) 83
Brady 23 (pen)
Cole 52
Pogba 54
Hussain 74
W.Keane 85

 
 

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.

U18s: United 3 Stoke 2 – Reds roar back to claim the points

Posted by nickogs20 on January 24, 2010


January 23rd 2010, 11am
Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd West Brom
Manchester United U18s 3-2 Stoke City U18s
Ajose 63 (pen) Nichols 14
Cofie 81 R. Brown own goal 56
Hussain 86

 
 
It wouldn’t be a Manchester United season at any level without a stirring comeback or two, and on a foggy morning at Carrington, Paul McGuinness’ U18s produced another classic against a Stoke City side who held a 2-0 lead at the hour mark and were still a goal in front as the game headed into the final ten minutes.

Andy Nichols handed the Potters an early lead during a first half that was enough to make you yearn for a wall with a fresh coat of Dulux to watch instead, and when Reece Brown put through his own net ten minutes into the second 45, the Reds looked to have a mountain to climb. The referee came to their aid with the equivalent of a chairlift halfway up Everest in the form of a very dubious penalty decision, and after Nicky Ajose converted, incessant United pressure in the final hour eventually saw the visitors crumble with the victory post in sight, John Cofie and Etzaz Hussain grabbing the goals from close-range that completed a remarkable turnaround and provided a huge injection of confidence ahead of Thursday’s much-anticipated Youth Cup clash with Blackburn.
