United 5 Bury 0: Shakers shaken as Reds fire five

Posted by nickogs20 on August 27, 2009

Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Bury
Manchester United Reserves 5-0 Bury Reserves
Hewson 5
Macheda 31 (pen), 50
Stewart 36
Moffatt 70

United made an emphatic start to their bid to win the Manchester Senior Cup for a third consecutive year this evening, Bury the unfortunate side on the receiving end of a five-star showing from Ole Solskjaer’s Reserves at Moss Lane.

Sam Hewson picked up where he left off against Bolton on Monday night and handed the Reds a fifth-minute lead. Bury’s backline could have been forgiven at that point for thinking they were in for a long night, and so it proved as Kiko Macheda (twice), Cameron Stewart and Scott Moffatt all found the net and established a scoreline that barely reflected United’s dominance over the ninety minutes.

Wednesday 2 United 2: U18s fail to make early dominance count

Posted by nickogs20 on March 28, 2009

Sheffield Wednesday Man Utd
Sheffield Wednesday U18s 2-2 Manchester United U18s
Wood 29 Moffatt 12
Palmer 66 Ajose 22

Despite dominating the first half, scoring twice and hitting the woodwork three times, United’s academy side were forced to settle for a draw this morning against their Sheffield Wednesday counterparts, who rallied well to get back into a game that looked like it could very quickly get away from them. On a morning that saw all four seasons pay a visit to Wednesday’s Middlewood Road ground and some almost unplayable conditions at times, the Reds took advantage of having the wind at their back and imposed themselves on the game early, Ollie Norwood and Cameron Stewart striking the frame of the goal before Scott Moffatt and then Nicky Ajose managed to find the net and give United a deserved lead. Sloppy defending from a set-piece gave the hosts a way back into the game before the break, and – with the conditions now in their favour – Wednesday made full use of that opportunity, grabbing an equaliser, and ultimately a share of the points, after a fine passing move caused havoc in the Reds’ backline.

United 0 Sheff Utd 0: U18s draw blank against Blades

Posted by nickogs20 on March 21, 2009

Man Utd Sheffield Utd
Manchester United U18s 0-0 Sheffield United U18s

On a misty, murky morning at Carrington, these two sides served up a match in keeping with the conditions as United huffed and puffed but never really came near blowing the Sheffield United house down. With the Blades content to play on the break and increasingly happy to settle for a point as the match wore on, the Reds saw the vast majority of the possession but couldn’t break down the massed ranks in defence for the visitors. As it turned out, it was Sheffield United who came closest to troubling the scorers when Joe Smith’s shot a minute into the second half crashed against the crossbar.
