Thorpe 76

 
United’s second string returned from a month without a game to record their first league win of the season, coming back from a goal down to beat Bolton in terrible conditions at the County Ground.

An experienced Trotters XI featuring a number of first team squad members took the lead through Adam Blakeman just after the half-hour mark, but Will Keane provided an almost instant response for the Reds before second-half strikes from Cameron Stewart and Tom Thorpe secured all three points for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Bolton 1 United 3: Reserves start season in style as Bolton are beaten again

O’Halloran 10 Cathcart 3

United’s reserves got their Barclays Premier Reserve League North campaign off to winning start this evening with an ultimately convincing 3-1 victory over Bolton Wanderers. Returning to the County Ground in Leyland, scene of last week’s Lancashire Senior Cup Final triumph against the same opposition, a much more open and exciting match than that encounter saw the Reds seize control of the game in the second half after a much more even first 45 minutes that had seen Craig Cathcart and Wanderers’ Michael O’Halloran trade early goals and Zoran Tošić hand Ole Solskjaer’s side a slightly fortuitous lead on the stroke of half-time.

The second half turned into something of a duel between a much more dominant United and Robert Lainton in the Bolton goal, with numerous opportunities to kill off the match going begging before Sam Hewson finally secured all three points and an opening day win with a late header.

Second string up and running after convincing win

Macheda 45+3
Hewson 53
Cleverley 65

 
In hindsight, United’s reserve side probably couldn’t have hand-picked a better fixture in which to make amends for last week’s defeat against Wigan. The Reds had picked up five wins and two draws from their previous seven trips to the County Ground to play Bolton (as well as lifting the Lancashire Senior Cup at the same ground in July of this year) and, after a scrappy first-half had ended with Kiko Macheda putting United ahead, they never looked in any danger of having that unbeaten streak ended. Further goals from Sam Hewson and Tom Cleverley in a massively one-sided second half ensured a first league win of the campaign for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Date confirmed for Lancashire Senior Cup Final

Posted by nickogs20 on June 16, 2008

Fixture congestion at the tail-end of last season (can we call it last season now the new fixtures are out?) forced the postponement of the 07/08 Lancashire Senior Cup Final until pre-season in 2008/09, and now we have a confirmed date. United’s reserves will bid to make it a belated cup double against their Liverpool counterparts on July 30th in what will be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first ‘competitive’ game in charge. The game will be held at the County Ground in Leyland (regular home of Bolton’s second string), and the Reds will hope the three arranged friendlies prior to July 30th (as revealed here) will stand them in good stead as they challenge for more silverware.
