Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reserve side continued their flawless start to the new campaign, comfortably beating Stockport County at Moss Lane to make it three wins from three in the Manchester Senior Cup.

United dominated proceedings from the outset, and Will Keane opened the scoring midway through the first half from the penalty spot. Despite the Reds creating numerous chances, a combination of some wayward finishing, intervention from the woodwork and heroics from Hatters’ keeper Owain Fon Williams kept the visitors in the game deep into the second half, the three points only really being secured when sub John Cofie struck his first goal for the reserves with quarter of an hour remaining,

Fixture frustration for U18s and Reserves

Posted by nickogs20 on November 13, 2009

Both Paul McGuinness’ U18 side and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second string have had their upcoming games postponed.

Tomorrow’s Premier Academy League game with Stoke City has been called off after inclement weather this past week caused the pitch at the Potters’ Clayton Wood base to become waterlogged. Both teams have a free weekend at the end of this month but the short notice and probable Youth Cup considerations will likely mean the fixture will instead be re-arranged for some time in the spring. As usual, when we find out the new date, we’ll let you know.

Meanwhile the Reserves’ Manchester Senior Cup clash with Stockport County, originally scheduled for Monday night at Ashton United’s Hurst Cross ground, has been re-arranged for Thursday December 17th at County’s request. With Hull away next up on the fixture list on November 24th, Solskjaer’s side will have endured a frustrating three weeks without a game by that time.

Stockport County win 8-7 on penalties

United’s defence of their Manchester Senior Cup crown took another hit at Carrington this afternoon as – for the second MSC game in a row – the Reds came out second best in a lengthy penalty shoot-out. Just like Bolton did back in October, visitors Stockport County held Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reserve side to a goalless draw and eventually won out on penalties, Reds left-back Joe Dudgeon missing the decisive spot-kick and leaving Solskjaer’s men needing a victory over Manchester City in their final group game to keep their chances of retaining the Cup alive.
