Manchester United’s Under-18s won away to Wolves this afternoon.
Charlie McNeil’s second-half goal at the Sir Jack Hayward Training Centre in the West Midlands was just enough to continue the Reds’ winning streak to seven league games.
It wasn’t an easy win for Neil Ryan’s side but a professional performance got the lads over the line and showed that they can grind out wins in close encounters.
Newly signed full-back Marc Jurado was involved in the goal. He young Spaniard initiated the move before finding Charlie Wellens who picked out McNeil. The former City striker lashed the shot past Wolves’ goalkeeper.
Manchester United: Mee; Jurado, Bennett. Hardly, Hughes; Svidersky, Savage; Wellens (Hoogewerf 65), Iqbal, Emeran (Garnacho 82); McNeill (Hansen 74).
