Youth team kick off a tough run of fixtures
Last time out in the U18 Premier League, a couple of weeks ago, our youth team scored two late goals to complete a 3-1 win against Stoke.
We play the return game against Stoke on the final Saturday in February and the fixtures prior to that couldn’t be much tougher. Two of them are against fifth place Liverpool. The other six gamesr will see us play all of the top three twice, that’s third place Manchester City, second place Manchester United twice and runaway leaders Blackburn.
It’s Manchester United first at Gawthorpe. They were comprehensively beaten in their opening two games they season. They were beaten 3-0 at Manchester City in their opening game and followed that up with a 5-0 home loss against Liverpool.
They are unbeaten since with four wins and two draws. Their most recent victory was 2-0 at Nottingham Forest in their last game. They’ve also beaten Leeds, Stoke and Newcastle with the two games before Forest ending in draws against Middlesbrough and Derby.
The home game against them last season was our first game of 2021. We beat them 1-0 with a third minute goal scored by Sam Unwin (pictured).
Tomorrow’s game kicks off at 11 a.m.Follow UpTheClarets:
