FC UNITED of MANCHESTER YOUTH 4 HYDE UNITED YOUTH 0
FC United of Manchester Youth team returned to the top of the National League u19 Alliance ’J’ Division for the time being with this 4-0 home win against Hyde United Youth on the Broadhurst Park 3G on Wednesday afternoon.
After a cagey opening half hour, FC United eventually broke the deadlock on 38 minutes. Cameron Horner’s goalbound effort was only parried by Connor Wainwright in the Hyde United goal, and KEENAN TUCK was on hand to net the rebound.
On 44 minutes, the home side added a second and Cameron Horner was again the provider. His header found an unmarked FRANCESCO FRANGILLO who made no mistake from ten yards out.
On 50 minutes, it was 3-0 when Will Shawcross sent in KEENAN TUCK to drill the ball under the visiting ’keeper.
Substitute Jack Ward went close with a clever lob on 81 minutes but it was left to another sub to round off the scoring.
Jack Ward’s 87th minute free-kick from the right was dropped by the Hyde United ’keeper and LEWIS UNWIN nipped in to score and make sure of the final result.
