U18s: United 1 Portsmouth 2 – Pompey pinch the points on opening day

Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Portsmouth
Manchester United U18s 1-2 Portsmouth U18s
Lawrence 89 Colson 22
Grant 68

 
United’s new-look academy side fell to an unfortunate opening day defeat at Carrington as an oft-outplayed Portsmouth took all three points in smash and grab fashion.

Paul McGuinness’ team offered glimpses of a potentially promising future throughout but were undone by a glaring lack of cutting edge and some naive defending, the visitors netting twice against the run of play to leave the Reds too much to do, Tom Lawrence’s late strike ultimately proving to be in vain.

U18s: Stoke 0 United 4 – Class from Keane as Reds cruise past Potters

Clayton Wood Training Ground, Stoke-on-Trent

Stoke City Man Utd
Stoke City U18s 0-4 Manchester United U18s
W.Keane 14 (pen), 40
Cofie 36
Pogba 59

 
A first-half double from Will Keane helped United’s U18s extend their unbeaten start to the season to eight games with a convincing 4-0 win over Stoke City.

Making their first visit to the Potters’ newly-revamped Clayton Wood training complex, the Reds got off to a fine start as Keane netted from the spot to hand Paul McGuinness’ side an early lead. Leading scorer John Cofie grabbed the second goal ten minutes before the break, and with Keane netting a classy third just minutes later, United had all but secured the points by half-time. A brilliant long-range strike from Paul Pogba just before the hour mark made completely sure, the Frenchman’s third goal in as many games capping another fine win and sending the Reds top of Premier Academy League Group C.

U18: United 2 Sunderland 0 – Reds leave it late to beat Black Cats

Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Manchester United U18s 2-0 Sunderland U18s
Ajose 81, 88 (pen)

 
Down to the bare bones, without a win in three games and facing one of the strongest and most free-scoring sides in academy football, United’s U18s confounded all expectations at Carrington to grind out a gutsy, morale-boosting 2-0 win over Sunderland.

The Black Cats perhaps shaded a cagey first half and were definitely well on top in the early stages of the second, dominating possession and having much the better of the chances. The makeshift Reds eventually weathered the storm however and finished the stronger, Nicky Ajose making the crucial breakthrough in the 81st minute and putting a gloss on the win from the penalty spot two minutes from time.
