Manchester United's youngsters kicked off the 2013 Milk Cup campaign with a comfortable win over County Antrim at the Ballymena Showgrounds.
An early goal helped settle any nerves the Reds might have had as Joe Riley's free-kick caused havoc in the area and Bradford's Oliver McBurney, travelling with the club on work experience, stabbed home from six yards out.
It was one-way traffic and Demetri Mitchell doubled the advantage, capping a fine solo run with a slightly fortuitous deflected finish.
Ruairi Croskery's splendid free-kick completed the scoring, the lead allowing Brian McClair to give a run-out to almost his whole squad ahead of games with South Coast Strikers and TuS Altenberge in the days to come.
United: O'Hara; Reid, Tuanzebe (Scott 62), Borthwick-Jackson, Thompson; Riley (Rathbone 62), Willock, A.Pereira (Nicholas 58), Mitchell (Rashford 36); Croskery (McTominay 50), McBurney.
