In other Academy news, nine of our Youth team and Academy team players were recently selected for trials to represent Greater Manchester Schools at Under 18s level.
As a result of this, and with the England Schools manager being present, one of our young players - Jan Palinkas
- was then nominated for a trial with England Schools FA.
Well done Jan!
Jan is 16 years old, lives in Salford and - despite this being his first year with the Academy - has already forced his way into the FC United of Manchester Youth team at centre-back this season.
One for the future, perhaps?!
