Reserves: Yeovil 3 United 2 – Hosts get their Way as Reds suffer second-half slump

Posted by nickogs20 on July 24, 2010

Darren Way Benefit Match
July 24th 2010, 3pm
Huish Park, Yeovil

Yeovil Man Utd
Yeovil Town 3-2 Manchester United XI
Kalala 47 Possebon 37
S.Williams 50 Brady 78
Virgo 51

 
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 21-game unbeaten run in pre-season fixtures came to an end as United’s Reserves suffered defeat against Yeovil Town in a benefit match for Glovers coach Darren Way.

The Reds took a slender lead into the half-time interval after Rodrigo Possebon’s second goal in as many games, but Solskjaer’s side were rocked in a five minute spell after the break as Jean-Paul Kalala, Sam Williams and Adam Virgo punished some slack defending to completely turn the game on its head. Sub Robbie Brady pulled one back to set up an entertaining finish but the home side held on, much to the delight of the 6664-strong crowd who saved their loudest cheer of the day for the last minute introduction of Way, turning out in a Yeovil shirt for the final time after his playing career was prematurely ended by serious injury.

Reserves: Dunfermline 1 United 5 – Reds hit five in Fife

Posted by nickogs20 on July 18, 2010

Friendly
July 17th 2010, 3pm
East End Park, Dunfermline

Dunfermline Man Utd
Dunfermline 1-5 Manchester United Reserves
Kirk 63 King 1, 16
Ajose 11
Possebon 34
W.Keane 85

 
United’s Reserves made it nine goals scored in their first two pre-season games as they put five past an outclassed Dunfermline at East End Park.

Coming off the back of a four-goal haul against Curzon Ashton on Monday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side picked up where they left off and blew the Scottish First Division outfit away in the first half. Joshua King grabbed two goals inside the first twenty minutes, those two strikes sandwiching another from Nicky Ajose, and Rodrigo Possebon’s long range effort made it four before the break. While Andy Kirk’s free-kick pulled a goal back for the home side in a quieter second half, Will Keane put some deserved gloss on the scoreline and restored the four-goal cushion with a typical finish five minutes from time.

Reserves: United 1 Liverpool 0 – Gabby’s golden goal puts Reds on the brink of glory

Posted by nickogs20 on April 14, 2010


April 13th 2010, 7pm
Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Liverpool
Manchester United Reserves 1-0 Liverpool Reserves
Obertan 44

 
United are within touching distance of the Barclays Premier Reserve League North title after Gabriel Obertan’s glorious first-half strike clinched a 1-0 win over nearest challengers Liverpool.

With the Merseysiders trailing United by six points but having two games in hand heading into the game at Moss Lane, this meeting of fierce North West rivals was understandably billed as a title decider and was every bit as cagey and close-fought as you would expect from such an encounter. It took a stunning effort from Obertan on the brink of half-time to divide the two teams, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were good value for their win and now need just four points from their final two league games to clinch a first Northern section title in four years.

Reserves: United 2 Everton 0 – Anderson-inspired Reds stroll to victory

Posted by nickogs20 on February 19, 2010


February 18th 2009, 7pm
Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Everton
Manchester United Reserves 2-0 Everton Reserves
Diouf 44
Stewart 45+2

 
After a fortnight of frozen pitches and fixture frustration, United’s reserves returned to action with a convincing win over a youthful Everton second string at Moss Lane.

Bolstered by the relative experience of Anderson, Mame Biram Diouf, Gabriel Obertan, Ben Foster and Fábio da Silva, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side always looked too strong for a committed but outclassed Toffees outfit and dominated the ninety minutes, with perhaps the only surprise being that the scoring was limited to just a three minute period at the end of the first half. A fine performance from Iain Turner in the visitors’ goal was the primary reason for this, but the young Scot was powerless to keep out Diouf’s fine strike after an Anderson-led counter or Cameron Stewart’s precise finish from the edge of the area.

Poll Reminder

Posted by nickogs20 on June 3, 2009

Just a quick nudge to anyone who hasn’t voted in either of our ongoing polls, as we seek your views ahead of United Youth’s end of season awards. We covered the Academy Player of the Year poll in an article last week, and loads of you have voted – we’ll be taking that one down in the course of the next day or so, so anyone who hasn’t should do so pronto. In addition, we’ve also got a poll running over in the right-hand sidebar for the Reserve Player of the Year – same drill, we want to know who you think has been the outstanding performer for Ole Solskjaer’s reserve side in 2008/09, and to help, we’ve listed 7 who we think are deserving of your attentions:

James Chester
The official Denzil Haroun Reserve Player of the Year this season, James captained the side in the first half of the campaign and had a productive loan spell at Peterborough before injury cut short his season.

Tom Cleverley
A nominee for the Denzil Haroun award, Tom started the season in terrific goalscoring form for the Reds before translating that into an impressive loan spell at League One champions Leicester City.

Corry Evans
Captain after Chester’s loan departure, the 18 year-old Ulsterman was a rock at the heart of defence despite being a midfielder by trade, and has forced his way into the full Northern Ireland squad.

Fábio da Silva
Injury and the presence of Patrice Evra has prevented Fábio from making the same impact at first team level as his twin, but anyone who’s seen him for the reserves this season will know he’s capable.

Kiko Macheda
Top-scorer with 10 goals in 18 games, including a sensational hattrick against Newcastle at St James’ Park. We all know what happened in the ensuing fortnight…

Lee Martin
Returned from a disappointing loan spell at Forest with his tail between his legs back in January but has been a revelation for the second string since then in an unfamiliar central role.

Rodrigo Possebon
The Brazilian-turned-Italian’s pre/early-season form under OGS saw him force his way into the first-team picture, although his much-publicised injury against Boro in the Carling Cup set him back significantly.

You don’t have to vote for one of those if someone else has caught your eye however – the ‘Other’ box is there for you to identify another player, as some have done already with the likes of Matt James and Danny Welbeck. We’ll keep this poll running for another couple of days, and we should have another one up alongside it very soon – the all-important Overall Young Player of the Year award, where those who have caught the eye in academy and reserve action will battle it out with first-team starlets like Jonny Evans and Rafael da Silva for recognition as the most impressive young player at the club this past season.

Thanks to all those who have voted so far.
