UNDER-18S: WEST BROM 4 MANCHESTER UNITED 2

Under-18 Premier League | Birmingham Road | Scorers: Holsgrove 25, Rogers 33, Soule 39, Hall 63; Barlow pen 71, Baars 89

Manchester United’s youngsters launched their 2017/18 league season with a shock 4-2 defeat at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Trailing by three goals at the break, the Reds had the better of the second half but the deficit proved to be too big an obstacle.

It was, for most of the time, bright and windy at West Brom’s Birmingham Road training centre. There was a small crowd present as the game got under way and, from the off, United dominated possession.

Defender Ethan Laird started the game in lively fashion and for most of the first half looked more like a winger than a full-back as he frequently attacked down the right.

Nishan Burkart, with a header, and captain Angel Gomes, who fired over, both went within inches of putting United in front.

Then, in the space of 14 minutes, the entire complexion of the game changed as West Brom proceeded to score three goals through Kieron Holsgrove, Morgan Rogers and Jamie Soule, to leave United with a mountain to climb.

United carved out numerous chances during the opening half without any success, while Albion produced far fewer with much greater accuracy.

The second half brought a similar pattern of play, with United having more of the ball, but it was Albion who found the net, in the 63rd minute, through Mylo Hall’s curling finish.

United continued to press forward and, in the 71st minute, the young Reds pulled one back when Aidan Barlow slotted home from the penalty spot after Burkart had been felled by Pablo Martinez.

Millan Baars reduced the arrears with time running out with a cracking shot, but it too late for United to harbour thoughts of gaining anything from a game that, remarkably, they could have won.

United: Foticek; Laird, Ercolani, Barratt (Baars 46), O’Connor; Barlow, Galbraith (Levitt 85) Garner, Williams (Mellor 85); Gomes, Burkart. Subs not used: Thompson, Bernard.

UNDER-18S : MANCHESTER UNITED 2 STOKE 1

Under-18 Premier League | The Cliff | Scorers: Barlow 42, Burkart 46 | Szereto 60 pen

Manchester United’s Under-18s were in action at their spiritual home – The Cliff on Lower Broughton Road in Salford – on Friday night, securing a 2-1 triumph over Stoke City.

With goals on either side of half-time, from Aidan Barlow and Nishan Burkart, the Reds collected the first points of the season in what was a typically incident-packed game against the Potters.

United’s great FA Youth Cup-winning sides of the 1950s (and beyond) were assembled, honed and nurtured at this famous training ground, alongside the River Irwell, and it has remained a special place for generations of young players ever since. It is a facility that is firmly enshrined in the club’s history and, to this day, retains a magical attraction for players, coaches and supporters alike.

Just looking at the pitch, beautifully manicured and mown in the classic Wembley style of broad alternating strips, was enough to bring back memories. And those old enough to remember the halcyon days of the past would surely be struggling not have a moistening of the eye when visiting the old place these days.

Anyway, that is enough of the nostalgia and on to the main business of the evening and the Under-18 Premier League fixture against the team from the Potteries.

It was a pleasant, quite warm and dry, evening in Salford and there was good gathering of dedicated fans who were accommodated on the riverside of the ground. United, who were aiming to get the season up and running after faltering in the campaign’s opener at West Brom, contributed to a lively opening with both sides looking to attack at every opportunity as the ball swung from one end to the other.

The first decent chance of the game fell to the visitors when Venancio Monteiro fired in a free-kick that needed dealing with by United keeper Alex Fojtíček, who did really well to stop it entering the net just below the angle of crossbar and post.

On the half-hour mark, United went close when Lee O’Connor's close-range shot was blocked on the line by Stoke’s number one Male Deczki. Two minutes later, Stoke should have scored when Monteiro latched on to Krisztofer Szereto’s left-wing cross but his shot was wide of the post.

United eventually moved into the lead, with three minutes of the half remaining, when Barlow managed to re-direct James Garner’s shot past Deczki from inside the box, following a positive run by Angel Gomes.

United were celebrating again within 60 seconds of the restart as a beautiful sweeping move downfield involving several players was concluded when Burkart stooped to superbly head Millen Baars' right-wing centre firmly past Deczki.

Stoke pulled one back, on the hour, when Szereto scored confidently from the penalty-spot after the referee had spotted a handling offence by Ethan Galbraith, even if the decision seemed harsh.

There was no further scoring but plenty of action and goalmouth incident to entertain the fans on this, the first evening match to be played at The Cliff this season.

United: Fojtíček; Laird, Dunne, O’Connor, Williams; Baars (Greenwood 87), Garner, Galbraith (Levitt 64), Barlow; Gomes; Burkart (Bernard 90). Subs not used: Thompson, Ramazani.

U18S : DERBY COUNTY 0 UNITED 2



Under-18 Premier League | Derby County Training Centre | Scorers: Gomes 26, Burkart 59

A goal in each half at Derby County’s picturesque Oakwood training facility saw Kieran McKenna’s team gain their second victory of the season.

Angel Gomes grabbed the opening goal midway through the first half and the win was sealed after the break when Nishan Burkart doubled the advantage.

Fears that the terrible weather, mainly extremely heavy rain, experienced on the journey to Derby could be what the teams may have to contend with during the game, thankfully, proved to be unfounded.

Both teams began the game slowly with Derby marginally having the better of the early attacking action.

There was little in it until the 26th minute when Brandon Williams picked out Burkart with a long downfield ball. The Reds' centre forward did well to keep the ball from drifting off the pitch and the quickly found Gomes on the edge of the area.

There were several Derby defenders ready to challenge Gomes but he kept his composure before curling a beautiful shot out of the reach of goalkeeper Matthew Yates.

United almost went further ahead just before the break when Aidan Barlow tried his luck from distance, but the ball flew inches wide of the target.

Buoyed by their success in the first half, United came out for the second spell looking far more adventurous and confident. Gomes fired over from a good position and Ethan Laird went close with a header from Barlow’s corner.

Then, in the 59th minute, United’s good work bore fruit when they grabbed a second goal of the afternoon.

There was no hint of what was to follow when the ball ran to Burkart in the middle of the field. Derby were well represented but a lapse amongst them allowed the United striker to break free and he gleefully took the opportunity to advance upfield before lashing the ball past the diving keeper.

United rarely looked in trouble after that and with an ounce of luck Barlow and George Tanner could have added to the list of goalscorers.

United: Fojticek; Laird, Dunne, O’Connor, Willims; Baars (Greenwood 62), Garner, Levitt, Barlow (McGhee 77); Gomes, Burkart (Tanner 82). Subs not used: Thompson, Mellor.

UEFA YOUTH LEAGUE: UNITED 4 BASEL 3

UEFA Youth League | Leigh Sports Village | Scorers: Barlow 5, Boonen 50, Gomes 57 (pen), Bohui 62 (pen) | Pululu 14, Lokaj 58, Kaiser 66 (pen)

Manchester United's youngsters started the European campaign with victory in a game that contained three penalties, a red card and a real glut of goals in the second half.

It took only five minutes for the Reds to open our UEFA Youth League account for the season as Joshua Bohui's run created an opening for Aidan Barlow. Although it initially looked like Jozef Pukaj had made the save, the ball looped up in the air and over the line before he could keep it out at the second attempt.

Basel replied in kind with Martin Liechti releasing Afimico Pululu into acres of space and the French forward supplied an impudent lofted finish over Ilias Moutha-Sebtaoui as the Belgian keeper advanced from his goal.

Both teams had chances in the remainder of the first half as Angel Gomes had a free-kick deflect off target via Alessandro Stabile before Pululu dragged wide, when shrugging off Indy Boonen, and Daniele Vesco sent a header over the bar.

As the heavens opened in the second period, it also started to rain goals with the fans at Leigh Sports Village enjoying the entertainment. Boonen smuggled in an inviting free-kick by Barlow to get the ball rolling again and United started to turn on the style. Barlow was hugely unlucky with a sweeping drive that cannoned off the upright, from a Gomes pass, and Ethan Hamilton played a one-two with Gomes only to shoot wide.

When Boonen was tripped by Yves Jankowski, Gomes's penalty sent Pukaj the wrong way to open up a two-goal advantage. It lasted only two minutes however, as Ylber Lokaj rose to power in a header from a corner to quickly reduce the deficit.

The Reds scored another penalty, this time through Bohui, who smashed it home, when Gomes was clumsily up-ended inside the area by Lokaj, only four minutes after the defender had nodded his side back into the game.

To their credit, the visitors continued to make a fight of it and, after Liechti's free-kick was pushed away by Moutha-Sebtaoui, a soft penalty was awarded when it was unclear whether Bohui or substitute James Garner had even committed the offence. Kaiser drilled in the third successful spot-kick of the match, low and hard past Moutha-Sebtaoui.

Barlow hammered a free-kick wide as the goals, and chances dried up, and United's hopes of securing three points were boosted when Kaiser was sent off for a second yellow card, a crude knee into the back of Bohui.

Vesco was fortunate to escape a red card of his own for kicking Gomes when already on a booking but Nicky Butt's men held out comfortably to get Group A off to a good start with a deserved success. Benfica beat CSKA Moscow 5-1 in the other tie in the pool.

United: Moutha-Sebtaoui; Laird, Warren, O'Connor, Tanner (Kenyon 57) ; Sang (Garner 63), Hamilton; Boonen, Gomes (Burkart 92), Barlow; Bohui. Subs not used: Fojticek, Dunne, B. Williams, Baars.

U18 PL CUP: UNITED 4 ARSENAL 3

Under-18 Premier League Cup | The Cliff | Scorers: Burkart 48, Bughail-Mellor 68, Gomes 83,89 (both pens) | Saka 5, Smith-Rowe 12, Olayinka 36

In what must be one of the most remarkable games ever played at United’s legendary Cliff training ground in Salford, United’s Under-18s recovered from trailing by three clear goals at the break to claim an incredible victory over Arsenal in the dying embers of the contest.

Arsenal were almost untouchable during an impressive first half for the North London club, but that was totally eclipsed after the break as United staged a truly remarkable fightback, scoring four goals without reply including two Angel Gomes penalties.

In a nutshell, this was a truly spectacular and distinct ‘game of two halves!’ Playing at the spiritual home of the club's junior players more often while work on the pitches at the Aon Training Complex is ongoing is clearly an experience to enjoy and cherish for the youngsters.

This was the opening game in the new Under-18 Premier League Cup and United went into this group fixture hoping to build on the league victories over Stoke City and Derby County in recent weeks, but that plan was soon put to the test as the Gunners raced into a two-goal lead inside 12 minutes.

Buyako Saka grabbed the first, in the fifth minute, with a good finish after cutting in from the right and, seven minutes later, Emile Smith-Rowe took advantage of defensive lapse to find the net from inside the area.

United were battling hard to stem the tide and, for a while, it appeared that a goal to put us back in the game wasn’t too far away. At the same time, Arsenal were looking very slick and confident and were regularly threatening United’s goal and, in the 36th minute, they claimed their third goal through James Olayinka.

Dylan Levitt replaced the injured Aidan Barlow at the interval and the young Welsh midfield player made an almost instant impact when he crossed from the left, three minutes into the second half, for Nishan Burkart to score at the near post.

That early goal after the restart was just the boost United needed and it provided the springboard for a noticeable transformation in the Reds' performance and the game in general.

In the 68th minute, substitute D’Mani Bughail Mellor reduced the deficit to a single goal with a smart finish following an eye-catching United attack. Suddenly, the game had been turned on its head and United were looking more than capable of claiming some reward from a match which, at one point, had appeared completely out of reach.

Then, seven minutes from time, Bughail-Mellor was felled in the area and Gomes stepped forward to thump home the equaliser from the penalty spot.

But that wasn’t the end of the story as, with less than two minutes remaining on the clock, a similar sequence of events saw substitute Largie Ramazani fouled as he burst into the area and Gomes confidently repeated the process of six minutes earlier by sweeping the ball past keeper Joao Virginia.

This tie had to be seen to be believed because, at the break, United were nowhere to seen, but the second half belonged totally to the Reds and, in the end, Kieran McKenna's side were full value for the astounding victory.

United: Fojticek; Tanner, Dunne, O’Connor, B. Williams; Baars (Ramazani 62), Garner, Galbraith, Barlow (Levitt 46); Gomes; Burkart (Bughail-Mellor 62). Subs not used: Thompson, Laird.

U18S: MANCHESTER UNITED 1 NEWCASTLE UNITED 1

Under-18 Premier League | The Cliff | Scorers: Puigmal 61; Young 74

Manchester United’s run of three straight victories at Under-18 level was brought to an end on Saturday afternoon as Newcastle United claimed a share of the points at The Cliff.

The game was goalless at half-time but both sides found the net after the break - Arnau Puigmal scoring for the Reds and Jack Young striking for Newcastle - in what was a keenly-fought encounter.

Kieran McKenna’s young Reds were back at The Cliff just a week after that spectacular Premier League Under-18 Cup clash against Arsenal, that saw United recover from three goals down to take the points with a dramatic 4-3 victory.

It was an overcast afternoon in Salford with threatening dark clouds above but, thankfully, the rain had kept off as kick-off time arrived. There was a small gathering of spectators in attendance as the match got under way with the Reds defending the indoor-arena end of the ground.

Both sides began the game in a lively mood as they sought to carve out an early advantage but there were no goal attempts of note until the 11th minute when George Tanner’s cross from the right provided Nathan Harker, in the Newcastle goal, with his first serious work of the game. The visitors then forced a corner which the Reds successfully defended, whilst at the other end Ethan Laird fired into the side-netting.

The hosts' wide players, Millen Baars and D’Mani Mellor, were causing Newcastle some problems with their pace down the flanks, but it was still the two sets of defenders who were having the upper hand.

No score at the break was a good reflection of the overall pattern of the game that had offered rare genuine goalscoring opportunities. This was in stark contrast to the game of eight days earlier when Arsenal had plundered three goals without reply before the interval.

The second half provided more in the way of entertainment as both teams showed more endeavour and an appetite to attack.

Laird was proving to be a handful when he rampaged down the left for the Reds and one such run and cross in the early moments of the second half had the Magpies scrambling to clear.

McKenna's team were taking the game to the visitors and it was Laird who looked most likely to break the deadlock. One shot struck the foot of the far post and rebounded away and moments later, another attempt on goal flew inches wide of the target.

The Reds finally took the lead in the 61st minute and was Laird who indirectly provided the assist after he was tripped as he cut inside. Puigmal took the resulting free-kick and with a beautifully struck shot, he bypassed the defensive wall to find the net close to the inside of the post.

The hosts' lead lasted barely thirteen minutes before the Newcastle youngsters, under the tutelage of former Norwich City and Everton defender David Watson, grabbed an equaliser thanks to Young’s shot from the edge of the area.

A couple of long-range efforts from Thomas Allan, in the moments after the leveller, went agonisingly close to producing a winner for the Magpies.

United: Fojticek, Tanner, Barrett, O’Connor, Laird; Puigmal, Garner; Baars (Ramazani 46), Galbraith (Williams 83), Mellor; Burkart (McGhee 78). Substitutes not used: Ercolani, Thompson.

UNDER-19S: CSKA MOSCOW 1 UNITED 2

UEFA Youth League | Oktyabr Stadium, Moscow | Scorers: Merenchukov 90+1 | Barlow 8, Gomes 38

Manchester United Under-19s maintained a winning start in Europe on Wednesday afternoon, overcoming a less-than-perfect pitch to beat CSKA Moscow 2-1 and make it two victories from two games in the UEFA Youth League.

Aidan Barlow and Angel Gomes, two of the Reds' scorers in the opening 4-3 win over FC Basel a fortnight ago, both found the net again but, this time, their team-mate at the other end, goalkeeper Ilias Moutha-Sebtaoui, had much less to do behind a defence well-marshalled by captain Tyrell Warren, until CSKA pulled one back late on.

Both of United's strikes came in the first half, with Barlow providing the breakthrough in the eighth minute, shortly after Gomes had gone agonisingly close to doing the same.

Gomes, whose place in the England Under-17 World Cup squad was confirmed this week, arced a glorious shot against the crossbar after Tom Sang’s floated ball forward from midfield was laid into his path by striker Joshua Bohui. The rattled woodwork was a warning for the hosts that United were up for the task in hand from the first whistle, a warning they failed to heed when Indy Boonen found Barlow inside the box. The latter controlled the pass on his chest before beating Nikolai Zirikov with a crisp finish.

Barlow almost grabbed a second goal when he clipped a shot just wide of the far post but United still only had to wait until the 38th minute to make it 2-0. By then, Moutha-Sebtaoui had been asked to do a brave bit of smothering inside the six-yard box, after CSKA Moscow impressively switched the play from left to right with a ball that drew admiring applause from the several hundred fans in the only stand.

Many of those home supporters were grumbling when Bohui was brought down just outside the area for a free-kick but it was definitely the right call and their chagrin was compounded when Gomes despatched the set-piece into the bottom right-hand corner with Zirikov possibly at fault.

United controlled the second half for long periods, limiting the hosts to a tame volley held by Moutha-Sebtaoui and a chance that Roman Pukhov should have done much better with than head well wide of the target. At the other end, United's Ethan Laird pushed forward to drill a decent shot across goal and Bohui had some fans on their feet expecting to celebrate a goal with a powerful rising effort into the side-netting.

Suddenly, from a comfortable position, United conceded a last-gasp goal when CSKA substitute Dmitrii Merenchukov swept home from close range but, although the home supporters and their side drew encouragement from this, it was too late - and the Reds had been ultimately too strong - for the scoreline to be overturned.

United: Moutha-Sebtaoui; Laird, Warren, O'Connor, Kenyon (Tanner 60); Sang, Hamilton; Boonen, Gomes (B. Williams 86), Barlow (Garner 73); Bohui. Subs not used: Fojticek, Dunne, Ercolani, Galbraith.

UNDER-18S: EVERTON 1 MANCHESTER UNITED 1

Under-18 Premier League | Finch Farm | Scorers: Adedoyin 46; Ramazani 61

Manchester United's encouraging start to the 2017/18 Premier League Under-18 campaign continued against Everton at Finch Farm, but they were forced to settle for a point from a 1-1 draw for the second successive week.

Both goals, scored by Korede Adedoyin and Largie Ramazani, came in a hugely entertaining second half after neither side managed to break the deadlock before the break.

Kieran McKenna's team went into the game on Merseyside looking back at run of four league and cup games without defeat, with the opening-day reverse away at West Bromwich Albion being the only real blemish on the season so far for the Under-18s.

So United, wearing red shirts and black shorts, were keen to complete the month of September on a high note.

It wasn't the most pleasant of mornings in this little corner of Liverpool, with the players having to cope with wind and rain as the game got under way.

Away games at Everton, at any level, are never an easy proposition and this contest had something of a cagey opening as both teams eased their way into the match.

The first real goal attempt of note didn’t arrive until the eighth minute, when Everton's Stephen Duke-McKenna tried his luck with a shot that fizzed past Alex Fojticek's goal.

Moments later and, at the other end, Aidan Barlow hit a long-range shot that required attention from Everton goalkeeper Nicolas Hansen.

Shooting from distance seemed to be the morning’s preferred option with Everton’s Joe Anderson also going close.

Ten minutes before the break and United went close to taking the lead when a neat interchange of passes between Nishan Burkart and Barlow saw the former miss the target by inches.

Good defensive work by Fojticek and Brandon Williams kept Everton at bay, while Mason Greenwood burst through the Everton defence before hitting a goalbound shot that forced Hansen to make an excellent save.

Everton made two substitutions at the start of the second half and it was one of those, Adedoyin, who made an almost instant impact by heading his side into the lead from Elliot Richards’ cross within 45 seconds of the restart.

It was certainly a bolt from the blue for the young Reds, but it was also a really impressive header from a player who had only just joined the action.

Remarkably, the sequence of events that brought Everton's goal were almost replicated a few minutes later when coach McKenna sent on Ethan Laird and Ramazani.

Shortly afterwards a great pass from Greenwood sent Ramazani through to place the ball past Hansen with an accomplished finish to put United on terms.

If the first half had failed to scale any real heights, the second 45 minutes had more than made up for the dearth of action earlier.

Both sides showed so much more attacking adventure and, with a stroke of luck, there could easily have been several more goals at either end.

United went agonisingly close to grabbing all three points in the closing minutes with Greenwood, Ramazani and Max Dunne all on the verge of celebrating.

And, in the very last second of the game, they survived a real scare when Everton skipper Michael Collins headed against the bar from Adedoyin’s right-wing cross.

United: Fojticek, Ercolani (Laird 57), Dunne, O’Connor, Williams (Ramazani 57); Tanner, Garner, Puigmal, Greenwood; Barlow; Burkart (Mellor 68). Subs not used: Thompson, Levitt.

Default Re: Man United U-18 Matches 2017/18



U18S FRIENDLY: LEICESTER 1 UNITED 1

Manchester United and Leicester City's Academy teams contested a feisty friendly match on Friday evening at Nanpantan Sports Ground, home of Evo-Stik League side Loughborough Dynamos.

No quarter was asked and certainly none was given in an extremely hard-fought friendly that failed by some way to live up to its billing. The challenges were full blooded and, at one point, early in the second half, it boiled over into a free-for-all that involved almost every outfield player.

The outcome was a solitary yellow card shown to United’s Dion McGhee.

Despite the vigorous exchanges, there was plenty of attractive football to admire as the teams put on an entertaining contest for the modest attendance of 252 dotted around the perimeter of the well-manicured pitch.

Brandon Williams put United in front, in the 29th minute, but the Foxes were level within seven minutes.

That was the scoring completed but chances continued to be made at both ends and, but for some fine goalkeeping, the scoreline could made very different reading.

Both United’s keepers, Alex Fojticek and James Thompson, were in inspired form in limiting the Foxes to just one goal.

The crowd certainly enjoyed seeing the youngsters of two Premier League clubs on their local ground and the teams ensured that they saw a game to remember.

United: Fojticek (Thompson 74), Ercolani (Dunne 82), B. Williams., Bernard, Barrett, Galbraith, Tanner (Baars 75), Garner, Mellor, McGhee (Barlow 82), Ramazani.
