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

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.

After seeing their reserve counterparts crowned champions on Tuesday night, Paul McGuinness’ Under-18 side took a big step towards a title of their own as they moved six points clear at the top of Barclays Premier Academy League Group C with a comfortable 3-0 win at Stoke City.

A second-minute strike from in-form skipper Nicky Ajose gave the Reds a lead they would never look like relinquishing, and further goals from Paul Pogba and John Cofie provided a scoreline that accurately reflected United’s superiority and delivered a second convincing away win in the space of four days.

U18s: United 3 Stoke 2 – Reds roar back to claim the points

Posted by nickogs20 on January 24, 2010


January 23rd 2010, 11am
Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd West Brom
Manchester United U18s 3-2 Stoke City U18s
Ajose 63 (pen) Nichols 14
Cofie 81 R. Brown own goal 56
Hussain 86

 
 
It wouldn’t be a Manchester United season at any level without a stirring comeback or two, and on a foggy morning at Carrington, Paul McGuinness’ U18s produced another classic against a Stoke City side who held a 2-0 lead at the hour mark and were still a goal in front as the game headed into the final ten minutes.

Andy Nichols handed the Potters an early lead during a first half that was enough to make you yearn for a wall with a fresh coat of Dulux to watch instead, and when Reece Brown put through his own net ten minutes into the second 45, the Reds looked to have a mountain to climb. The referee came to their aid with the equivalent of a chairlift halfway up Everest in the form of a very dubious penalty decision, and after Nicky Ajose converted, incessant United pressure in the final hour eventually saw the visitors crumble with the victory post in sight, John Cofie and Etzaz Hussain grabbing the goals from close-range that completed a remarkable turnaround and provided a huge injection of confidence ahead of Thursday’s much-anticipated Youth Cup clash with Blackburn.

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.

United 0 Stoke 1: U18s frustrated as Stoke gain revenge

Posted by nickogs20 on February 21, 2009

Man Utd Stoke City
Manchester United U18s 0-1 Stoke City U18s
Brunt 5

 
United slipped to a second successive 1-0 reverse at Carrington this morning, an early goal for the visitors giving the Potters something to defend, and defend they did – extremely well. A somewhat makeshift Reds eleven were caught cold inside the first five minutes by a brilliant goal on the counter-attack from Darren Brunt, and thereafter saw plenty of possession, bossed the game right up until the final third but were frustrated time and again in their hunt for an equaliser by the superbly-organised Stoke rearguard. On a typically grey and blustery Manchester morning, the two sides produced a game in keeping with the conditions – it certainly wasn’t pretty, but for the visitors it was effective. A silver lining for the Reds came in the form of four U16 players making their debuts for Paul McGuinness’ U18 side.
