FC UNITED of MANCHESTER YOUTH 2 FARSLEY CELTIC YOUTH 1
FC United of Manchester Youth edged past Farsley Celtic Youth by two goals to one thanks to a last minute Michael Jones close range effort in their latest National League u19 Alliance Division ’J’ league fixture on the Broadhurst Park 3G on Wednesday afternoon.
After a goal-less first half, the West Yorkshire-based visitors took the lead on 49 minutes after FC United’s Sam Baird was adjudged to have tripped Nathan Hawkhead inside the penalty area.
DANNY EDWARDS stepped up to blast the spot kick past home ’keeper Thomas Bamber to put Farsley Celtic Youth in front.
On 58 minutes, the Young Reds drew level when SAM BAIRD powerfully headed a Will Shawcross corner past visiting ’keeper Daniel Crook.
But it wasn’t until the 90th minute when FC United grabbed a late winner. Substitute Papis Touray went on a mazy run down the right wing before centering, where MICHAEL JONES was on hand to steer the ball home from six yards out through a crowded goalmouth.
FC United of Manchester Youth are back in league action again on Wednesday 22nd March 2017 with an away trip to top-of-the-table FC Halifax Town Youth (K.O. 1.30 p.m. at Rothwell Juniors F.C.)
