HYDE UNITED YOUTH 2 FC UNITED of MANCHESTER YOUTH 1
FC United of Manchester Youth went down by the odd goal in three against Hyde United Youth on Wednesday afternoon at a windswept Ewen Fields in their latest National League u19 Alliance Division ’J’ league fixture.
The home team opened the scoring on 19 minutes when SPENCER JENKINSON drilled a low cross in from the right, and goalkeeper Sulaiman Sajjad wasn’t able to stop the effort from squirming into the net.
FC United’s Francesco Frangillo was unlucky to see an attempt on goal hit the crossbar and rebound into the home ’keeper’s hands shortly afterwards, but it was Hyde United Youth who were to score next.
A long clearance saw LOUIS HOLT outstrip the visiting defence before steering the ball past Sulaiman Sajjad for goal number two on 42 minutes.
The Young Reds did manage to pull one back on 63 minutes after Sam Baird had been tripped on the edge of the box. WILL SHAWCROSS stepped up to blast the resultant free kick high into the corner of the net to set up a nervy final half-hour, however Hyde United Youth managed to hold on to claim all three points.
FC United of Manchester Youth’s next league match is an away trip to AFC Fylde on Wednesday 18th January 2017.
