U18s: United 2 Sunderland 0 – Keane caps comeback with late clincher

United’s U18s extended their impressive recent unbeaten run to eight games with victory over Academy League Group D title challengers Sunderland at a blustery Carrington.

The Black Cats came into the game in formidable form and look well-placed to qualify for the end of season national play-offs, but an under-strength United side – missing almost the entire XI likely to start in the upcoming FA Youth Cup semi-final with Chelsea – dealt superbly with both the conditions and the opposition to run out 2-0 winners.

The Reds shaded the majority of a scrappy game and finally converted that superiority into a ead just after the hour mark, Tom Lawrence converting from the penalty spot after Gyliano van Velzen was crudely brought down. With reigning MUFC Young Player of the Year Will Keane making his long-awaited return from injury and settling things with an injury-time tap-in, Paul McGuinness could reflect on another thoroughly satisfactory outing for his young team.

U18: United 2 Sunderland 0 – Reds leave it late to beat Black Cats

Down to the bare bones, without a win in three games and facing one of the strongest and most free-scoring sides in academy football, United’s U18s confounded all expectations at Carrington to grind out a gutsy, morale-boosting 2-0 win over Sunderland.

The Black Cats perhaps shaded a cagey first half and were definitely well on top in the early stages of the second, dominating possession and having much the better of the chances. The makeshift Reds eventually weathered the storm however and finished the stronger, Nicky Ajose making the crucial breakthrough in the 81st minute and putting a gloss on the win from the penalty spot two minutes from time.

United 4 Sunderland 0: Black Cats have no answer to the awesome norsemen

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Reserves got back to winning ways in sensational style at Moss Lane this evening, a brace apiece for Magnus Eikrem and Joshua King handing the Reds an emphatic 4-0 victory over last season’s champions Sunderland.

The frustrating defeat against Liverpool last time out asked a few questions of this United second string, but early dominance suggested answers would soon be forthcoming. Eikrem’s 9th minute freekick got the Reds up and running, and he added another great strike from distance just after the half-hour to sandwich a cool finish from fellow Norwegian Joshua King and hand his side a 3-0 half-time advantage. The irrepressible King added a fourth goal ten minutes from time, ensuring a scoreline that truly reflected his team’s superiority.

United 2 Sunderland 0: Reserves wrap up league campaign with victory over the champions

United’s second string finished their Barclays Premier Reserve League North season in some style at Moss Lane this evening, inflicting just a third defeat of the campaign on champions Sunderland with a well-deserved 2-0 win. The Black Cats had already clinched the title while the Reds only needed to avoid defeat by more than three goals to secure second place, but that didn’t stop both sides serving up an entertaining and highly competitive ninety minutes. Ole Solskjaer’s team eventually emerged victorious thanks to a Lee Martin penalty and a terrific injury-time strike from Matt James, and will go into the upcoming Manchester Senior Cup and Lancashire Senior Cup finals full of confidence.

Sunderland 1 United 0: Black Cats ride their luck to end reserves’ winning run

United’s reserve side had performed impressively for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in recent weeks, but their four-game unbeaten run – the most recent three of those victories – was always going to be put sternly to the test against table-topping Sunderland, and so it proved. The Reds started brightly and seemed to be enjoying the rare opportunity to play in a Premier League venue like the Stadium of Light, but Jordan Cook’s goal against the run of play gave the Black Cats the lead just before the break, and Northern Irish ‘keeper Trevor Carson performed heroics to keep Solskjaer’s side at bay and see his team through to a win that was essentially confirmed ten minutes from time when two bookings in the space of as many minutes saw Ritchie de Laet given his marching orders and United reduced to ten men.
