Marnick Vermijl marked his Reds debut with a well-taken brace as United comfortably overcame a shadow Shamrock Rovers side 3-0 in the first game of the Platinum One Challenge.

Rovers keeper Pat Jennings performed a passable impression of his illustrious goalkeeping namesake in the first-half, denying United on a number of occasions, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side – bolstered by a number of players with senior experience – weren’t to be denied after the break as a penalty from Tom Cleverley and Vermijl’s double secured a deservedly comprehensive win.

United’s Reserves made it nine goals scored in their first two pre-season games as they put five past an outclassed Dunfermline at East End Park.

Coming off the back of a four-goal haul against Curzon Ashton on Monday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side picked up where they left off and blew the Scottish First Division outfit away in the first half. Joshua King grabbed two goals inside the first twenty minutes, those two strikes sandwiching another from Nicky Ajose, and Rodrigo Possebon’s long range effort made it four before the break. While Andy Kirk’s free-kick pulled a goal back for the home side in a quieter second half, Will Keane put some deserved gloss on the scoreline and restored the four-goal cushion with a typical finish five minutes from time.

U18s: Bolton 1 United 1 – Reds made to wait as Trotters halt title charge

Lostock Hall Farm, Bolton

Bolton Man Utd
Bolton Wanderers U18s 1-1 Manchester United U18s
O’Halloran 11 W Keane 19

 
United’s title-chasing U18s had to endure a frustrating morning at Lostock Farm as a stubborn, resilient Bolton side paid no heed to the form book and denied the Reds the three points required to clinch the Premier Academy League Group C title.

Bottom of the table and on a run of five straight defeats, the Trotters rocked United with a dynamic, physical start and an early goal from Michael O’Halloran. A scrappy effort from Will Keane got the league leaders back on terms after only eight minutes in arrears, but despite controlling the rest of the game and going close on a number of occasions, Paul McGuinness’ side couldn’t find the goal they needed to be crowned champions with a game to spare.
