Don the Red shirt

The Manchester United Supporters Team is on the lookout for fresh talent as the promising 2013/14 season edges towards an exciting conclusion. 

The team is challenging at the top of the Internet Football Association Supporters League and recently moved into the quarter finals of the British Cup via a dramatic 3-2 win over Livingstone Olympic Lion, a match that forced them travel to Scotland as David Moyes’ men headed south for Crystal Palace.

The game swung both ways as United took the lead through Academy coach Rob Curran before Livingstone hit back with goals either side of half-time. Ste Sheakey then headed an equalizer, paving the way for Matthew Radcliffe to hit a dramatic winner from the halfway line with just minutes left. 

The draw for the last-eight produced another trip north to face Livingston GS and speaking ahead of that match, which must be played before Saturday 26 April, club captain Chris Jones explained why new additions to the team are also welcomed. 

“Playing for the supporters' team is essentially the next best thing to playing for the first team, as far as I’m concerned,” Chris told United Review, the matchday programme at Old Trafford. “It’s great to pull on the red shirt and know that you’re representing the club. We are always on the lookout for new players, too.

“We have got some big games coming up, in both the league and the cup, so a few new additions would be very useful. Hopefully, we will have a couple of trophy wins to celebrate in May!”
