FC United of Manchester’s Youth Team are through to the Third Qualifying Round of the F.A. Youth Cup competition following this 3-0 home win against Gateshead Youth at Broadhurst Park on Wednesday evening.
After a goal-less first half in which the Young Reds had far the better of the chances, the home side eventually took the lead on 60 minutes when KAMAHL FULLER audaciously back-heeled a Jack Ward free-kick into the net.
On 68 minutes, it was 2-0 when CAMERON HORNER latched on to a Steve Affleck through ball before slipping it past the onrushing Gateshead No. 1 Iain Macleod.
And on 79 minutes, WILL SHAWCROSS made sure of the final result with a long range effort that left the Gateshead ’keeper grasping at thin air.
