U18s: United 1 Portsmouth 2 – Pompey pinch the points on opening day

Posted by nickogs20 on August 20, 2011


Saturday August 20th, 11am
Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Portsmouth
Manchester United U18s 1-2 Portsmouth U18s
Lawrence 89 Colson 22
Grant 68

 
United’s new-look academy side fell to an unfortunate opening day defeat at Carrington as an oft-outplayed Portsmouth took all three points in smash and grab fashion.

Paul McGuinness’ team offered glimpses of a potentially promising future throughout but were undone by a glaring lack of cutting edge and some naive defending, the visitors netting twice against the run of play to leave the Reds too much to do, Tom Lawrence’s late strike ultimately proving to be in vain.

U18s: United 1 Liverpool 2 – Reds’ run ends as Merseysiders get revenge

Posted by nickogs20 on April 6, 2011


April 4th, 1.30pm
Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Liverpool
Manchester United U18s 1-2 Liverpool U18s
Lawrence 32 Morgan 23
Massacci own goal 45

 
The U18s’ eight-match unbeaten run came to an end as Liverpool gained a measure of revenge for last month’s FA Youth Cup exit with a 2-1 win at Carrington.

A makeshift United side – featuring just two of the starting eleven from that thriller at Anfield – fell behind midway through the first half to a goal from Liverpool’s top scorer Adam Morgan, and while Tom Lawrence produced a fine equaliser ten minutes later, Paul McGuinness’ side found themselves in arrears again on the stroke of half-time through an own goal by the unfortunate Alberto Massacci. The visitors were good for their lead, and while United had their chances to snatch a point in the second half, Liverpool kept them at bay to record a deserved win.

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

Posted by nickogs20 on April 1, 2011


March 31st, 1.30pm
Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Sunderland
Manchester United U18s 2-0 Sunderland U18s
Lawrence 62 (pen)
W.Keane 90

 
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.

U18s: Derby 2 United 2 – Another pearler from Pogba as Reds draw at Derby

Posted by nickogs20 on March 21, 2011


Saturday March 19th 2010, 11am
Moor Farm Training Centre, Oakwood

Derby Man Utd
Derby County U18s 2-2 Manchester United U18s
Ball 1 Lawrence 40
Hendrick 56 Pogba 75

 
After last week’s Youth Cup thriller at Anfield, United’s U18s returned to league action and once again showed their resilience to come from behind twice and earn a point against Derby at Moor Farm.

The Reds found themselves behind in controversial circumstances inside the first minute when Callum Ball’s header was dubiously adjudged to have crossed the line, but Paul McGuinness’ side rallied to control the first half and draw level just before the break with a fine strike from Tom Lawrence. The second half followed a similar pattern, the hosts striking early through captain Jeff Hendrick before drawing level once more with a sensational strike from their own skipper Paul Pogba, and while there was still time left for United to push for the winner their play deserved, Derby held out to ensure the points were shared.

U18s: United 5 Cardiff 0 – Bluebirds battered as Reds run riot

Posted by nickogs20 on August 29, 2010


August 28th 2010, 11am
Trafford Training Centre, Carrington

Man Utd Cardiff
Manchester United U18s 5-0 Cardiff City U18s
McGinty 19
Fornasier 24
Lawrence 56 (pen)
Cofie 60
Barmby 87 (pen)

 
After the sensational comeback away at Chelsea last week, United’s U18s made it two wins from two in the Premier Academy League with an altogether more straightforward thrashing of Cardiff City at Carrington.

First half goals from defensive duo Sean McGinty and Michele Fornasier put the Reds into a commanding early lead and an outclassed Bluebirds side conceded three more after the interval, penalties from Tom Lawrence and Jack Barmby sandwiching a John Cofie strike as Paul McGuinness’ team continued their promising start to the new campaign.

Marveld squad revealed

Posted by nickogs20 on June 14, 2008

Marveld TournamentThe tournament (held a fortnight ago) may be better best forgotten from a results point of view – the Reds finished 10th of 12 and won just one game – but the official Marveld website has revealed the U15 squad United sent over to Groenlo and you never know whether there might might be a name or two in there to remember:

1. Sam Johnstone
2. Michael Keane
3. Luke Giverin
4. Luke Hendrie
5. Tom Thorpe
6. Yaune Gnahore
7. Jackson Ramm
8. Larnell Cole
9. Will Keane
10. Ravel Morrison
11. Nigel Neita

12. Tom Lawrence
13. Elliot Bullock
14. Matty Boland
15. Tyler Blackett
16. Raheem Hanley
17. Rico Gomes

It’s worth noting that Michael Keane and Rico Gomes’ names were misspelt on the website so there may be further spelling errors in the names of less familiar players.
