Reserves book extra friendly

United's Reserves have shoehorned an extra friendly into their busy schedule ahead of the new Barclays Premier Reserve League season.

The Reds will take on Birmingham City's second string at St Andrew's on Tuesday 9th September, kicking off at 7pm.

The friendly will represent United's final warm-up game before the start of the season proper, which begins at home to Blackburn Rovers nine days later.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's pre-season preparations have augured well so far, with three wins and a draw from four outings.
