Malachi Sharpe, a winger, one of the Derby three, who has started 4 games for the 18s this season( with one goal) started and scored for Scotland u17 against Northern Ireland in a Euro qualifier on Wednesday, and Jack Kingdom a central defender who made his United debut for the 18s in the last game of last season but hasn't featured this year, came on as a substitute for Scotland in the same match.

United's u18 side who dominated for large periods of the game scored two late goals to draw 2-2 away to Derby County this morning, with Manni Norkett(p) and Ethan Ennis getting the goals.

Should have won the game. I tend to think I am getting really biased in my old age. Garnacho getting sent off for reacting to getting pulled back for about the sixth time really pissed me off.

Yeah should have been out of sight in the first-half ....

Not biased, the standard of Refs at that level is a joke, as soon as a a United player makes a name for himself, and Garnacho has been flying this year, they are systematically targeted by the opposition and the Refs do sod all about, but take pride in booking or sending them off if they retaliate, it was the same with Mejbri last year.

Impressive from a very young United side to beat and deserve to beat Atalanta who are no mugs at this level home and away in the last two matches, more so considering Villarreal gave United the run around at home(1-4)in the 2nd group match.

Be very surprised if Villarreal don't at least get to the Semis. United unlikely, but next year ....

Not a great performance but credit to the 19s coming from behind to win(1-2) at Villarreal who showed us our backsides(1-4) at the Leigh Sports Village earlier in our UEFA youth League group.

McNeil and Mather the scorers.

Disappointing 3-0 loss for the 18s at a very wet and windy Everton yesterday, United the better team in the first-half without creating too many chances despite having the wind in their favour, which Everton took full advantage of in the second-half to run out deserved winners.

Shola Shoretire returning from injury scored as the 23s won 0-4 at Blackburn with Garnacho scoring 2, and his younger bro Tunde scored as the u13s beat City 4-2.
