Match Report
HOPWOOD HALL COLLEGE (FC UNITED) 2 ST. JOHN RIGBY COLLEGE (ORRELL) 0

FC United’s academy team made it through to the quarter-finals of the Greater Manchester Schools FA Under 18’s County Cup competition with this 2-0 home win against St. John Rigby College (Orrell) on the Broadhurst Park 3G on Wednesday afternoon.

After a cagey start to the game, the young Reds started to gain the upper hand and Jack Ward was particularly unlucky to see an on-target shot tipped over the bar on 28 minutes as was Robson Brown, whose 45th minute effort found the side netting when through on goal.

With just seconds of the first half remaining, JACK WARD finally opened the scoring for the home side with a low shot under the visiting ’keeper to give the young Reds a 1-0 interval lead.

And on 90+1 minutes, JACK WARD added his second for the cup holders when he ran in on goal unopposed to make the final score 2-0.
