Burnley Reserves 0-1 Manchester United Reserves
Cole 90+1

United’s Reserves wrapped up their 2009/10 league programme in fitting style as a late late goal from Larnell Cole secured a 1-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

After 90 rainy and goalless minutes in a game that certainly lived up to its billing as an end-of-season dead rubber, some slick football from the Reds and a wonderfully composed finish by Cole saw the champions grab all three points, rounding off the campaign on a high and boosting confidence ahead of Monday’s Premier Reserve League playoff against Aston Villa.

Today was a day of contract resolution – and things only went half United’s way. Sir Alex Ferguson’s delight at Darron Gibson putting pen to paper on a new three-year contract was tempered by the news that Richard Eckersley had turned down the club’s offer of a new deal and instead exercised his right to move, as a free agent, to Premier League new boys Burnley.
