Eurotech Football Centre Academy XI
FC United of Manchester’s academy team went down to a single goal defeat after this keenly contested pre-season friendly against a Eurotech Football Centre Academy XI from Fleetwood on the Broadhurst Park 3G on Wednesday afternoon.
After a goalless first half, the visitors took the lead on 49 minutes when EMANG MOLEFE latched onto a loose ball before clipping it past the home ’keeper.
And it might have been 0-2, just two minutes later, but for a fine penalty kick save by Tom Bamber, who guessed right to turn the spot kick over the bar.
On 67 minutes, FC United missed a penalty kick of their own. Jahed Abdul was tripped rounding the away team ’keeper but then blasted the resulting 12 yard kick off the crossbar and out of play.
There were more chances at either end, but 0-1 was the final score.
