Ashton on Mersey School Men’s 1sts
1 - 0
FC United of Manchester’s Academy ’B’ team travelled to Ashton on Mersey on Friday afternoon for an AoC Sport North West League Invitation (East) league fixture against top-of-the-table Ashton on Mersey School Men’s 1sts and were somewhat unlucky to come away on the wrong end of a single goal defeat.
On a rather bobbly pitch, chances were few and far between and the key moment came in the 27th minute.
The home side won a free kick in central midfield, which was curled over towards the near corner before being headed back into the danger area where GEORGE STELFOX-HARRIS gleefully blasted the ball home from the edge of the six yard box.
Dillon Kirkman went close for the visitors on 76 minutes but his effort went narrowly wide and that was about as close as FC United got to snatching an equaliser.
The FC United of Manchester Academy ’B’ team are next in action on Friday 15th March 2019 when they host Aquinas College in the semi-finals of the Greater Manchester Schools FA under 18s County Cup/ (Broadhurst Park 3G, 1.30 pm KO).
