U18s clash called off

The Under-18s' Premier Academy League clash with Blackburn Rovers had to be cancelled on Saturday morning due to frozen pitches at the Reds Carrington training headquarters.



The cancellation will be frustrating for Oliver Norwood and co., as the U18s have been in fine form since the turn of the year.

Paul McGuinness' team have beaten West Brom, Everton and Bolton to close the gap on Group C leaders Manchester City.

The match against Rovers will be rearranged for date later in the league campaign, while a short trip to face City away is the next challenge awaiting the U18s on Saturday week.
