FC United of Manchester’s Academy ’A’ team came back from going an early goal down to record a 3-1 away win against iSports FC Manchester Men’s 1sts at Manor Farm, Timperley on Monday afternoon in their latest ECFA NW Men’s Invitation 2A league fixture.

The home side had taken the lead from the penalty spot on 13 minutes after Artan Cobaj was adjudged to have shirt-pulled an opponent. LEWIS MORGANS converted from the 12 yard mark, although ’keeper Tom Bamber nearly got a hand to it.

On 36 minutes, the visitors drew level. Full-back STEVE AFFLECK went on an overlapping run before cutting inside to blast the ball past home ’keeper Matthew Loizou.

On 50 minutes, the Young Reds took the lead. This time Steve Affleck was fouled outside the penalty area, and Sam Harding’s curling free-kick was met by DILLON KIRKMAN who steered the ball home from six yards out.

On 59 minutes, iSports FC Manchester might have equalised. This time it was Cameron Boland who conceded a penalty, but Lewis Morgans’ spot-kick was well saved by Tom Bamber in the FC United goal.

And XAVIER IWEGBU made sure of the final result for FC United when he netted on 69 minutes after good build-up play on the right by Steve Affleck.
