Manchester United’s U18’s finished their season with a victory against Everton winning 2-1 at Finch Farm with Josh Harrop scoring twice, which will keep coach Paul McGuinness happy ahead of the new season. The Toffee’s had already reached the play offs in the Barclays U18 Premier League. Delial Brewster forced a diving save from Dean Henderson with Russell Griffiths on alert at the other end with Ruairi Croskery forcing him to make the save. On the half hour, Gethin Jones was given a perfect chance to score but saw his penalty saved by Henderson, who made a diving save.
It was the young United side that took the lead with John Harrop scoring a superb free kick. Harry Charsley equalised with a header from Liam Walsh’s set piece, but Everton’s joy was short-lived after Harrop put United into the lead once again. It was a busy weekend you the young United player, who was a late substitute for Warren Joyce’s U21 side on Friday evening as they beat Liverpool 1-0 at Anfield to make it to the final of the Barclays U21 Premier League.
Manchester United: Henderson; Riley, Borthwick-Jackson, Scott, Evans; Harrop, Goss, Willock, Redmond (Reid), Thompson; Croskery Substitutes Not Used: Dorrington, Rathbone, Kehinde
