Norwood 54

 
Oliver Norwood capped off a worthwhile visit to Scotland for United’s Reserves with a sublime curling effort to beat a competitive Ayr United side 1-0 at Somerset Park.

After beating Spartans 7-1 twenty-four hours earlier, there where high hopes for more goals from a United side that contained experienced first team players Darron Gibson and Tomasz Kuszczak. However, Norwood’s goal on 54 minutes was all that separated the two sides.

Reserves: United 3 Wigan 1 – Bébé bags brilliant brace

Posted by nickogs20 on November 18, 2010

Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Wigan
Manchester United Reserves 3-1 Wigan Athletic Reserves
Bébé 4, 57 Sunday 65
W Keane 45 (pen)

 
Two terrific goals from Portuguese winger Bébé helped United’s second string extend their unbeaten run to six games, the Reds running out comfortable 3-1 winners over Wigan Athletic at Moss Lane.

The summer signing from Vitória Guimarães struck early on with a fierce effort into the top corner before producing an even better goal just before the hour mark, his stunning angled volley arrowing and dipping past a helpless Lee Nicholls in the Latics goal. In between Will Keane had stroked home a penalty on the brink of half-time, all of which rendered Ivan Sunday’s header with twenty-five minutes remaining no more than a consolation.

Posted by nickogs20 on October 5, 2010

It’s been another impressive month for United’s youngsters across all levels, leaving us with a tough decision when picking September’s star man. While a couple of players have made compelling cases with their goalscoring exploits, we’ve gone for a man who’s predominantly a creator – the reserves’ captain and playmaking midfield maestro Magnus Eikrem.

Reserves: Blackburn 2 United 2 – Eikrem strikes late to snatch a point

Posted by nickogs20 on September 27, 2010


September 27th 2010, 7pm
Leigh Sports Village, Leigh

Blackburn Man Utd
Blackburn Rovers Reserves 2-2 Manchester United Reserves
Roberts Brady 34 (pen)
Hoilett 73 (pen) Eikrem 90+4

 
For the third consecutive day a United side drew 2-2, Magnus Eikrem’s late late strike earning United’s reserves a deserved share of the points against a strong Blackburn XI at Leigh Sports Village.

A largely disappointing game sprung to life ten minutes before the break as Robbie Brady converted a penalty won by Ravel Morrison, with Rovers keeper Frankie Fielding keeping his side in the game with a series of fine saves thereafter. The hosts weathered that storm and turned things around in the second half, a goal apiece from strike pairing Jason Roberts and David Hoilett – the latter from the spot – giving Blackburn a lead they looked like holding onto until Reds skipper Eikrem popped up in the fourth minute of stoppage time with a brilliant equaliser, just reward for a youthful United side that more than matched their more experienced opposition.

Reserves: Oxford 1 United 2: Reds ride their luck as Ajose nicks the winner

Posted by nickogs20 on July 27, 2010

Friendly

Kassam Stadium, Oxford

Oxford Man Utd
Oxford United 1-2 Manchester United XI
Constable 45 Eikrem 45, missed pen 5
Ajose 90

 
United’s Reserves got their pre-season campaign back on track with a late late victory over Oxford United at the Kassam Stadium.

After spurning an early chance to take the lead when Magnus Eikrem saw his penalty saved, the Reds seemed to have snatched a half-time advantage when the Norwegian made amends by curling home a free-kick a minute before the break, only for the hosts to respond immediately through James Constable. Oxford had the better of an extremely competitive second half and looked the more likely winners but, with time almost up, Nicky Ajose popped up at the far post to volley home and clinch a dramatic win in textbook United fashion.
