MACCLESFIELD FC ACADEMY 1sts 6 FC UNITED of MANCHESTER ACADEMY 'A' 4

FC United of Manchester Academy 'A' team were in Friday Development League action on Friday afternoon at the Moss Rose, going down, in a high scoring game, by six goals to four against a free scoring Macclesfield FC Academy 1sts.

The Young Reds got off to the worst possible of starts as the home No. 17 lobbed home the opening goal on just 5 minutes and a minute later they were two down as Macclesfield's No. 18 added a second.

On 8 minutes, AARON HUGHES pulled one back with a close range finish and then the same player, AARON HUGHES,  grabbed a 22nd minute equaliser as he charged down an attempted clearance by the Macclesfield 'keeper.

In a ding-dong first half, Macclesfield edged back in front on 35 minutes with a close range finish from their No. 8 before AARON HUGHES completed his hat-trick a minute later with an angled shot into the corner of the net to make the half time score 3-3.

On 49 minutes, substitute EMMANUEL JOHNSON put FC United in front for the first (and what proved to be the only) time in the game with a low shot from the edge of the area, before the home side's No. 11 grabbed an equaliser on 51 minutes.

The same player then rounded FC 'keeper Frankie Pitt for a fifth home goal on 59 minutes, before making sure of the final result by completing his hat trick by blasting a shot high into the roof of the net for the final goal of the game on 87 minutes.

Not often a team scores four on the road and still ends up losing and FC United No. 7 Aaron Hughes was rather unlucky not to score a fourth or maybe fifth goal, being denied by the home 'keeper, before being replaced late on.
