U18s: Derby 2 United 2 – Another pearler from Pogba as Reds draw at Derby

Posted by nickogs20 on March 21, 2011

Moor Farm Training Centre, Oakwood

Derby Man Utd
Derby County U18s 2-2 Manchester United U18s
Ball 1 Lawrence 40
Hendrick 56 Pogba 75

 
After last week’s Youth Cup thriller at Anfield, United’s U18s returned to league action and once again showed their resilience to come from behind twice and earn a point against Derby at Moor Farm.

The Reds found themselves behind in controversial circumstances inside the first minute when Callum Ball’s header was dubiously adjudged to have crossed the line, but Paul McGuinness’ side rallied to control the first half and draw level just before the break with a fine strike from Tom Lawrence. The second half followed a similar pattern, the hosts striking early through captain Jeff Hendrick before drawing level once more with a sensational strike from their own skipper Paul Pogba, and while there was still time left for United to push for the winner their play deserved, Derby held out to ensure the points were shared.

U18s: United 5 Cardiff 0 – Bluebirds battered as Reds run riot

Man Utd Cardiff
Manchester United U18s 5-0 Cardiff City U18s

Cofie 60
Barmby 87 (pen)

 
After the sensational comeback away at Chelsea last week, United’s U18s made it two wins from two in the Premier Academy League with an altogether more straightforward thrashing of Cardiff City at Carrington.

First half goals from defensive duo Sean McGinty and Michele Fornasier put the Reds into a commanding early lead and an outclassed Bluebirds side conceded three more after the interval, penalties from Tom Lawrence and Jack Barmby sandwiching a John Cofie strike as Paul McGuinness’ team continued their promising start to the new campaign.

U18s: Wednesday 0 United 0 – Reds held scoreless in Sheffield

Middlewood Road, Sheffield

Sheffield Wednesday Man Utd
Sheffield Wednesday U18s 0-0 Manchester United U18s

 
United’s U18s endured another frustrating morning as a stubborn and committed Sheffield Wednesday held the Reds to a 0-0 draw at Middlewood Road.

With Wednesday having only picked up two points at home all season, hopes were high for a productive visit to Yorkshire but those hopes were dashed by a surprisingly resolute Owls side, who proved difficult – and ultimately impossible – to break down. In a game that certainly won’t linger long in the memory, neither goalkeeper was overly exerted and goalmouth action was infrequent to say the least, with 0-0 looking a likely scoreline from a very early stage. The home side were delighted with the point when the final whistle went, but for United there was an undeniable sense of disappointment at a third successive draw in the Premier Academy League.

Marveld misery for United

Posted by nickogs20 on June 8, 2009

Despite a promising start that saw them in contention to qualify for the final of this year’s Marveld Tournament with one group game remaining, United’s U15s were forced to settle for a repeat of last year’s 10th place finish as their competition ended with disappointing defeats to Lokomotiv Moscow and PSV Eindhoven.

United 3 Blackburn 2: Glimpse of the future as U18s round off season with a win

Posted by nickogs20 on May 7, 2009


May 6th 2009, 5.15pm
Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Blackburn
Manchester United U18s 3-2 Blackburn Rovers U18s
Lingard 6 Hitchcock 25, 51
King 43
Ajose 63

 
An extremely youthful United U18 side narrowly edged an entertaining encounter with Blackburn Rovers this afternoon and finished their league campaign on a real high, as Paul McGuinness took the opportunity to field the sort of side we may well see when the Premier Academy League kicks off again in August. Eight schoolboys were involved and another two made the bench, with the rest of the side made up of the first year scholars that will provide the ‘experience’ next season.

One of those schoolboys, Jesse Lingard, handed United an early lead with an impudent finish, quite a way to mark your debut. Blackburn then had the better of the first half and levelled with a goal from Tom Hitchcock (son of former Chelsea keeper Kevin), but United retook the lead minutes before the break through Joshua King, very much against the run of play. Hitchcock levelled for a second time in the second half, but a much improved United display brought the reward of a fine winner from top scorer Nicky Ajose just after the hour mark.
