U18s: United 2 Newcastle 1 – Reds grab win with late Giverin goal

Posted by nickogs20 on March 26, 2011


March 26th, 12.30pm
Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Newcastle
Manchester United U18s 2-1 Newcastle United U18s
Cole 36 D.Taylor 41
Giverin 83

 
Just as their Reserve counterparts had done earlier in the week, Paul McGuinness’ U18’s dug deep to grind out a 2-1 win over Newcastle at Carrington.

The two sides went into the break level after the visitors’ Dan Taylor had cancelled out Larnell Cole’s stunning opener in the dying minutes of the half, and the Magpies looked the more likely to take all three points as they had much the better of the second 45. Heroics from goalkeeper Sam Johnstone helped to keep the Reds on level terms however, and it was United who snatched the win late on as substitute Luke Giverin popped up at the far post to finish off a flowing move and notch his first goal for the club.

U18s: United 1 Newcastle 1 – Reds pick up a point, but lose top spot

Posted by nickogs20 on March 16, 2010


March 13th 2010, 12pm
Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Newcastle
Manchester United U18s 1-1 Newcastle United U18s
Pogba 27 McDermott 11

 
For the second week running United were held to a draw on home turf, Newcastle the opponents this time as the Reds again had to come back from a goal down just to earn a point.

Paul McGuinness’ side started strongly but gifted the Magpies the opening goal with little more than ten minutes played, some haphazard defending leaving Greg McDermott with a simple tap-in. Unperturbed, the Reds kept their heads and continued to look the more dangerous side going forward and got back on terms just before the half hour mark as Paul Pogba glanced home Ajose’s near post freekick. United should have built on that, Joshua King going closest with a fierce strike that rattled the bar, but the blustery conditions at Carrington took their toll on a game that fizzled out as it wore on, neither side really ever looking likely to grab a winner in a drab second half.

United 4 Newcastle 2: Free-scoring U18s bag another four in storming comeback

Posted by nickogs20 on April 25, 2009


April 25th 2009, 12pm
Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Newcastle
Manchester United U18s 4-2 Newcastle United U18s
Norwood 3 Adjei 19
King 47 Inman 42
Eikrem 76
Wootton 84

 
United’s academy side scored four last weekend at Leeds, but also let four in at the other end. No such trade-off this afternoon at Carrington, as a terrific second half display saw Paul McGuinness’ side turn around a 2-1 deficit and pick up another four goal haul. In a rain-lashed first-half, Oliver Norwood’s freakish third minute strike gave the Reds an early lead, but goals from Samuel Adjei and Bradden Inman handed Newcastle a half-time lead that their performance in the first 45 had merited. A different United side emerged for a sunny and dry second half and dominated proceedings, equalising swiftly through sub Joshua King and adding further goals from Magnus Eikrem (an absolute stunner) and Scott Wootton as they moved within a point of securing second spot in Group C of the Premier Academy League.

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.
