Youth team going for glory

FC United’s youth team are going for glory in the quarter final of the Neil Thomason Memorial Cup at 2pm this Sunday against Altrincham and, as ever, supporters can watch the match at St Brides for free.

The youngsters brushed aside Ashton Athletics under-18s 3-1 in the last round three weeks ago and team manager Peter Freakes is hoping for more of the same. He said: "It will be a good test for the lads but I’m confident we can do it. We’ll take it one game at a time but there’s no reason why we can’t win this competition."

The fledgling Reds are currently third in the North West Youth Alliance Premiership B, eight points behind Curzon Ashton but with three games in hand. Altrincham lie sixth out of 10 in Premiership B.
