Reds name Milk Cup squad

United have announced an 18-man squad for the Milk Cup in Northern Ireland.

The young Reds get the tournament underway against Co Tyrone on Saturday before tackling Revo Express and Ichifuna in the prestigious youth competition.

After reaching the final last year, Paul McGuinness' side will be looking to impress again this time around.

Summer signings Sean Goss and Matthew Willock are included along with Devonte Redmond from the Under-16s. Midfielders Ben Pearson and Joe Rothwell played in the 2011 final against Aspire while James Wilson came off the bench in that game.

ManUtd.com will follow the progress of the youngsters throughout the tournament.

Squad: Pierluigi Gollini, Kieran O'Hara; Ryan McConnell, Louis Rowley, Liam Grimshaw, Nicholas Ioannou; Ben Pearson, James Weir, Joe Rothwell, Andreas Pereira, Matthew Willock, Paddy McNair, Sean Goss, Josh Harrop, Devonte Redmond; Sam Byrne, James Wilson, Ashley Fletcher.
