Big friendly win for under-23s
The under-23s are back in league action next week but, following two defeats against Stoke and Crystal Palace, they took on Manchester United this afternoon at their Carrington training ground and came back with a 5-1 win.
All the goals were scored by forwards. Both Lewis Richardson and Max Thompson bagged a brace while Sam Unwin, who has been in goalscoring form for the under-18s , also on the scoresheet.
Next week’s home game against Middlesbrough is expected to be moved from Leyland with the Premier League reporting that it will be played at the Tameside Stadium, home of Curzon Ashton.Share this page :
