Reds sign up first-years

Manchester United have taken on 10 first-year scholars to join the Academy squad for the 2013/2014 season.

Demetri Mitchell is the only one of the youngsters to have already made his debut at Under-18 level after coming on as a substitute in last term's home defeat to Crystal Palace. The England Schoolboys winger is one of three Manchester-born prospects making the step up, along with defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Devonte Redmond.

All of the intake are Englishmen, with the exception of Northern Irish duo Jordan Thompson and Ruairi Croskery.

Oliver Rathbone is classified as an Under-17 Academy student while keeper Kieran O'Hara becomes an Under-18 student.
