Post Man United U-18 Matches 2019/20



MATCH REPORT: UNDER-18S BEATEN BY WOLVES

Goals at either end of the game were enough for Wolverhampton Wanderers to take the points against Manchester United in the Premier League Under-18 North fixture at Compton.

The Reds were slightly off the pace in the first half, but upped their game after the break and with a hint of luck may have gleaned something from contest.

Both goalkeepers, United’s Ondrej Mastny and Joe Young for Wolves, were in eye-catching form and produced between them two quite miraculous saves and a penalty save.

In the end, goals from Jed Abbey and Lee Harkin gave the home side a 2-0 victory.

Wanderers’ Compton Training Centre is situated in a beautiful setting and on this occasion the game was staged on the first team’s pitch, which is lined by towering trees of various varieties.

Neil Ryan’s lads were looking to extend the excellent start to the campaign that had been made at all levels. Before this match United’s first team, Under-23s and Under-18s had collectively won all five matches played, scoring sixteen goals without conceding any in the process.

Wolves, wearing their distinctive old gold shirts, started the game in bright sunshine with fluffy white clouds drifting across the sky. Both teams were ‘up for it’ from the start and that produced a lively opening to what is traditionally an entertaining contest.

The home side were having the better of the territorial play and in the 8th minute they were awarded a free-kick some distance from the Reds’ goal near touchline.

Wolves’ right-back Jed Abbey was given sole possession of the ball and, after taking a moment to compose himself, he launched a lofted shot that deceived United ‘keeper Mastny and looped into the far top corner of the net.

Anthony Elanga went down in the Wolves’ area in the 15th minute but the referee, Simon Brown, would have none of it and signalled play to continue.

United produced probably the best move of the half, just seconds before the break, when Dillon Hoogewerf pivoted to get in a shot following Elanga’s darting run down the left.

Coach Ryan and his staff’s words of wisdom during the half-time break appeared to been taken on board by our youngsters, for they looked livelier and sharper as the second spell got under way.

They were enjoying better possession and also posing more questions for the Wolves’ defence to answer. That said, in the 56th minute Wolves had a golden chance to make it 2-0 when winger Chem Campbell found himself in a great scoring position, but he failed to take advantage.

Substitute Omari Forson, who had been on the field for barely two minutes, was inches away from putting United on terms after connecting with Elanga’s corner.

Almost immediately United had Mastny to thank for keeping the deficit down to one goal when he pulled off a miraculous save to stop Conor Carty’s goal-bound header.

Then, at the other end, Wolves’ number one, Joe Young, produced a replica of Mastny’s save to keep out Connor Stanley’s terrific shot.

Remarkably, there was plenty of drama in the space of two minutes, close to the end of the game, when United had the chance to score after a penalty was awarded following a foul on Reece Devine.

Charlie McCann took the responsibility, but Young dived correctly to push the ball away.

Seconds later and Wolves wrapped up the points after substitute Lee Harkin claimed their second goal.

UNDER-18S SHINE AGAINST BLACKBURN

Three goals inside the opening 19 minutes were sufficient to put Manchester United's Under-18s well on course for maximum points against Blackburn Rovers at the Aon Training Complex on Saturday morning.

Anthony Elanga crowned a very special performance with two of the goals and also provided the pass from which Dillon Hoogewerf made it 2-0.

Rovers made a commendable fightback during the remainder of the game but a consolation goal, scored by Sam Burns in the 84th minute, was their only reward.

Summer had returned to the ATC ahead of this game with beaming sunshine and almost clear blue skies. And the mercury felt as though it was getting higher by the minute. This was definitely an occasion to maintain good hydration and for the water bottles to be at the ready.

Neil Ryan made just one enforced change from last week’s line-up against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Jack Hayward training centre, bringing in Will Fish for Teden Mengi who was in action on Friday evening, making his debut for the Under-23s against Newcastle United at St James’ Park.

For this writer, it was disappointing to see Rovers line up for the kick-off in their change strip, instead of the instantly recognisable and traditional blue-and-white quartered shirts.

United’s youngsters were aiming to strike back following last weekend's 2-0 defeat on the road at Wolves, and if they were seeking an instant impact then that mission was comfortably achieved.

The Reds were certainly fired up for this fixture and made the breakthrough with one of our first attacks, going ahead in the seventh minute thanks to a clever finish from Elanga who curled his shot in from the corner of the area, giving Rovers 'keeper Andrew Eastham little chance of stopping it.

This was much better from United and it was Elanga who was leading the charge with what was turning into a masterclass on the left wing.

Ten minutes after his opener, he was terrorising the Rovers’ defence again to set up Dutch recruit Hoogewerf to tap home the second goal.

Just seventeen minutes gone and United had already put the Wolves’ result behind them. Two minutes after Hoogewerf's goal, Elanga was up to his tricks again with another darting run and another angled finish past Eastham.

Rovers could been expected to have caved in after conceding three times inside the opening twenty minutes but, credit to them, they re-grouped and for the next ten minutes showed a marked improvement.

As a result there were no further additions to the scoresheet before the break but the Reds went in with a comfortable three-goal lead.

The visitors continued their resurgence as the second half got under way, but it was United who went closest to scoring when Mark Helm sent Charlie Wellens away with just Eastham to beat but the Rovers 'keeper came out on top in that duel.

A few minutes later and both physiotherapists were required to stretch their legs when Reds defender Ben Hockenhull and Eastham collided in Rovers’ area. Both required treatment but thankfully neither sustained a serious injury.

Wellens was given another golden opportunity having collected a fine pass from Hoogewerf but his shot went just the wrong side of the post.

Next up for United’s Under-18s is a week today against Liverpool at Kirkby.

MATCH DETAILS

United:
Mastny; Bejger (Neville 58), Fish, Hockenhull, Devine; McCann, Wellens, Helm; Stanley (Sotona 76), Hoogewerf, Elanga (Shoretire 73).

Substitutes not used: Mee, Hardley.

Scorers: Elanga 7, 19, Hoogewerf 17; Burns 84.

UNITED UNDER-18S PUSH LIVERPOOL ALL THE WAY

Manchester United's Under-18s showed great resilience to equalise three times against our arch-rivals Liverpool on Saturday, in an entertaining Academy game at Kirkby.

Our boys refused to capitulate when Liverpool went 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2 up, replying almost immediately with goals from Deji Sotona and, on two occasions, Charlie Wellens.

It was one of those games that could have easily gone either way but in the end, the hosts snatched all three points with a late, late winner. There was a further blow for United when a brief confrontation at full-time resulted in our defender Reece Devine receiving a second yellow card and being sent off.

The weather forecast hinted that there could be showers on Merseyside around kick-off time and that proved prophetic. As the teams were going through their pre-match preparations the heavens opened and this corner of Liverpool was engulfed by rain that could only be described as a mini-monsoon.

This is invariably a feisty fixture and there was nothing to suggest that this one was going to be any different. Even at Under-18 level, the rivalry between these two North West giants shows no bounds.

Liverpool, watched from the touchline by a former Anfield favourite, Steve Heighway, started the game well and looked more than capable of grabbing an early advantage. It didn’t happen for the home side and that allowed United to slowly ease our way back into contention.

The visitors, in fact, began to take the upper hand for a spell and came close to scoring through both Connor Stanley and Dillon Hoogewerf.

Dutch youngster Hoogewerf was looking sharp and was operating well as United’s main striker, but his promising start to the match was to be curtailed in the 24th minute, when injury forced him to leave the field to be replaced by Sotona.

Two minutes later and Liverpool moved into the lead following a smart move that concluded with Matteo Ritaccio, an American from New York, blasting the ball past our Czech goalkeeper Ondrej Mastny.

It wasn’t by any means against the run of play because it was clear that the nature of the game could produce a goal at either end. That was underlined three minutes later when substitute Sotona claimed the leveller from close range. Liverpool’s players were convinced that ‘keeper Ben Winterbottom had been fouled, but referee Ian Johnston ignored their appeals.

The contest had certainly moved up through the gears and the small crowd were to be treated to two further goals before the break.

With eight minutes to go until half-time, Liverpool regained the lead with a goal from their skipper Fidel O’Rourke. Then the play switched to the other end where United were soon back on terms after Wellens got the final touch to a Mark Helm strike.

The second half continued in the same style with the possession being equitably shared as the action moved rapidly between both penalty areas. Liverpool were nearest to finding the next goal when only a miraculous one-handed Mastny save prevented Tom Hill’s shot from finding the target.

This remarkable match still had a few twists and turns to deliver as the closing stages were reached. Niall Brookwell edged Liverpool back in front after 81 minutes, but United incredibly found yet another equaliser, less than 90 seconds later, thanks to Wellens. And that was just a few moments after the same player had slammed a shot against the hosts' crossbar!

The final act of this compelling match was played out when Liverpool’s Layton Stewart scored their fourth and winning goal, to leave us all looking forward to the return meeting in Manchester, in January next year.

MATCH DETAILS

United:
Mastny; Bejger (Neville 90+3), Fish, Hockenhull, Devine; Wellens, McCann, Helm; Stanley, Hoogewerf (Sotona 24), Shoretire.

Substitutes: Mee, Hardley, I. Hughes.

Scorers: Liverpool - Ritaccio 26, O’Rourke 37, Brookwell 81, Stewart 90; United - Sotona 29, Wellens 40, 83.

UNDER-18S SUFFER DEFEAT TO DERBY

Manchester United’s Under-18s slipped to our third defeat of the season after going down 5-1 away to Derby County on Saturday afternoon.

Hit by a three-goal, seven-minute Rams salvo in the first half, it was a blow which the Reds couldn’t recover from, despite Mark Helm’s strike providing a glimmer of hope before the interval. Two further Derby goals after the break put the game well out of United’s reach.

The trio of Bjorn Hardley, Calen Gallagher-Allison and Hannibal Mejbri - all 16-year-olds - were called up to make their full Under-18 debuts in place of Connor Stanley, the suspended Reece Devine and Will Fish, who had made an impressive bow for the Under-23s against Fulham the previous evening at Leigh.

With Fish and Teden Mengi among those promoted to Neil Wood's squad, it has meant a younger side appearing at this level.

Bright sunshine and clear skies were the order of the day as United’s Dillon Hoogewerf set the game in motion, and, in the opening few minutes, the Reds looked lively.

It was most certainly an encouraging start for Neil Ryan’s youngsters, but that changed dramatically as the Rams put away three rapid goals in the first 20 minutes.

The opener, in the 12th minute, was claimed by striker Bartosz Cybulski with a looping header and, soon after, Archie Brown capitalised on some slack defending to tap home the second.

United looked stunned, but worse was to follow when Cybulski grabbed his second of the afternoon with a close-range finish in the 19th minute.

Derby’s purple patch had left United with a mountain to climb. That said, the Reds gradually regained composure and, minute by minute, looked to have found the determination to negotiate a route back into the contest.

That glimpse of optimism was further enhanced in the 26th minute, when Helm, who appeared as a substitute the night before against Fulham Under-23s, hit a fierce right-foot shot past Derby keeper Bradley Foster-Theniger, after taking a cross-field pass from Charlie McCann.

The goal ensured United returned to the dressing room at the break in a slightly better frame of mind and another strike early in the second period could have given Ryan’s youngsters real hope of getting a positive result.

However, when the next goal did arrive, 10 minutes after the interval, it came courtesy of Jack Stretton.

Brown completed a miserable excursion for the young Reds when he grabbed his second goal just a minute before the full-time whistle.

United: Mastny; Bejger, Hockenhull, Hardley, Gallagher-Allison (Neville 46); Mejbri, McCann, Helm (Hughes 77); Wellens, Hoogewerf, Shoretire (Sotona 68).

Substitutes Not Used: Mee, Mejia.

Scorers: Derby - Cybulski 12, 19, Brown 15, 89, Stretton 55. United- Helm 26.
