Youth Cup Semi-Final Preview: In Chelsea, Reds face formidable final-four foe

Posted by nickogs20 on April 9, 2011

With the first team fighting for silverware on three fronts and big games coming thick and fast, it’s easy to overlook the fact that it’s not just United’s senior side that look set for a thrilling (and hopefully trophy-laden) climax to the campaign. Warren Joyce’s reserves are in hot pursuit of a treble of their own, while United’s U18s are 180 minutes away from the FA Youth Cup final, with the first leg of their last four clash with Chelsea taking place at Stamford Bridge this Sunday.

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.

Reserves: United 3 Wigan 1 – Bébé bags brilliant brace

Posted by nickogs20 on November 18, 2010


November 18th 2010, 7pm
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 November 2, 2010


November 2nd 2010, 7pm
County Ground, Leyland

Bolton Man Utd
Bolton Wanderers Reserves 1-3 Manchester United Reserves
Blakeman 32 W Keane 37
Stewart 69
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.

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

Posted by nickogs20 on October 10, 2010


October 9th 2010, 11am
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.

September in Review: Eikrem takes Player of the Month honours

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.

U18s: United 3 Blackburn 2 – Late Keane spot-kick clinches dramatic win

Posted by nickogs20 on October 2, 2010


October 2nd 2010, 11am
Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Blackburn
Manchester United U18s 3-2 Blackburn Rovers U18s
Morrison 28 MacLaren 4
Pogba 76 O’Connor 57
W.Keane 90+4 (pen)

 
Will Keane’s injury time penalty grabbed United all three points against Blackburn as a terrific game at Carrington ended in dramatic and controversial fashion.

United fell behind twice to goals by Jamie MacLaren and Anthony O’Connor but fought back each time, levelling through Ravel Morrison and Paul Pogba to set up a tense finale. The Reds’ chances of securing a win looked to have disappeared after they had a clear penalty for a foul on John Cofie turned down in the final minute, but justice was done deep into time added on as Michele Fornasier’s volley was blocked by a hand and Keane stepped up to coolly send the keeper the wrong way with practically the last kick of the match.

U18s: City 2 United 2 – Reds rue missed opportunity as City snatch a point

Posted by nickogs20 on September 26, 2010


September 25th 2010, 11am
Platt Lane, Manchester

Manchester Man Utd
Manchester City U18s 2-2 Manchester United U18s
Bunn 2, 80 Pogba 23
Cofie 50

 
Seemingly following the first team’s lead this season, for a third consecutive week United’s U18s let a winning position slip as a late equaliser secured City a 2-2 draw at Platt Lane.

The Blues had taken an early lead through prolific striker Harry Bunn, but United turned the game on its head with goals from Paul Pogba and John Cofie and thoroughly dominated the game for long spells either side of half-time. The Reds’ failure to add a decisive third goal while in the ascendancy always looked like it could be costly though, and so it proved as Bunn grabbed his and City’s second ten minutes from time to earn the hosts a somewhat fortuitous point.

Reserves: Bury 1 United 5 – Shakers shaken as Reds fire five

Posted by nickogs20 on September 20, 2010


September 20th 2010, 7pm
Gigg Lane, Bury

Bury Man Utd
Bury Reserves 1-5 Manchester United Reserves
Carlton 38 Brady 29, 34
Vermijl 59
Cofie 75
Tunnicliffe 81

 
United’s Reserves cruised into the quarter-finals of the Lancashire Senior Cup with a convincing 5-1 victory over Bury at Gigg Lane.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side responded to their heavy defeat at the hands of Aston Villa last week in ideal fashion, dishing out a thrashing of their own to set up a last eight clash with Oldham Athletic. Robbie Brady set the Reds on their way with a quickfire double midway through the first half, and while a mistake from Reece Brown allowed the Shakers to pull a goal back before half-time, United moved up a gear after the break and ran away with the tie, adding further goals through Marnick Vermijl, John Cofie and Ryan Tunnicliffe.
