Video: Erik ten Hag congratulates U18s on Premier League North title win

Manchester United U18s won the Premier League North title after an incredible season.

Erik ten Hag greeted the young title-winning U18s team just days after they won the northern division.

The U18s side, managed by Adam Lawrence, lost just once in 22 league games so far this season. They wrapped up the northern division following a 2-1 win over Wolves, with several games left to play – including a play-off with whoever wins the southern division (likely to be Chelsea).

Moreover, the U18s have the PL Cup final to look forward to.

In a video released by United via X, Ten Hag is seen greeting Lawrence’s squad around a lunch table at Carrington.

The first-team manager stopped occasionally to exchange a few kind words and handshakes.

U18s captain Finley McAllister, who goes to away games with his mates, gave a short speech: “I’d like to say a massive thank you on behalf of me and the players to all the staff, everyone that’s here.

“The last few months and the results we’ve been getting would not be possible without sticking together, helping each other and just being the best of mates day in, day out.”
