Hoogewerf is another exciting striker coming through the ranks at United and we are sure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be monitoring his progress.

The Dutchman has played a key role in the u18’s reaching the FA Youth Cup semi-finals this season, scoring three times in the competition.

He will be aware he has a lot of development to do to break into the first-team, but this is a proud step in any youngster’s career.

Congrats, Dillon!
