FC United of Manchester Youth came out on top against fellow title challengers Guiseley AFC Youth following this 2-1 home win in the National League u19 Alliance ’J’ Division on the Broadhurst Park 3G on Wednesday afternoon.
The Young Reds opened the scoring after just 39 seconds. Will Shawcross’s through ball found CAMERON HORNER whose low shot beat visiting ’keeper Sam Whittington before finding the corner of the net.
There might have been a second on 29 minutes when a Michael Jones’ shot hit the crossbar, but the next goal was to come from the visitors, with LUKE BALDWIN’s long range effort leaving Sulaiman Sajjad well beaten on 40 minutes.
On 78 minutes, FC United of Manchester Youth grabbed the winner. Cameron Horner went racing down the right wing before crossing for MICHAEL JONES to expertly arrow the ball past the Guiseley AFC goalkeeper from just outside the penalty area.
Guiseley came close in the dying minutes, but couldn’t quite snatch a second equaliser.
