Salford University FC
FC United of Manchester’s Academy ’A’ team received something of a footballing lesson as they went down 0-4 at home to a Salford University XI on the Broadhurst Park 3G in their final pre-season challenge match on Wednesday afternoon.
The visitors started well and opened the scoring on 15 minutes when JOE LEWIS sent home ’keeper Matthew Crosby the wrong way from the penalty spot following a foul on the edge of the area.
On 55 minutes it was 2-0 as an unmarked SAM HATTON netted from a corner on the right.
On 65 minutes, the Salford University XI went 3-0 up as ERIC SALLU scored from close range.
And DARREN BOZKURT rounded off the scoring for the visitors on 79 minutes when he placed a low shot into the corner of the FC United goal.
This was a tricky game for the Young Reds who found it difficult going against strong opposition from Salford University.
The FC United of Manchester Academy ’A’ team will be hoping to bounce back when they take on PDA Lancashire Men’s 1sts in their opening AoC Sport North West Championship Invitation (East) league fixture (Broadhurst Park 3G - Wednesday 26th September 2018 - KO 11 a.m.)
