United get Milk Cup dates

Manchester United will travel to Northern Ireland again at the end of July to participate in the Milk Cup.

The prestigious youth tournament has become a permanent fixture in the calendar for the Reds with the club winning the Premier Section in 2008 and 2009.

"It will be quite a young team in the Milk Cup this year as there will only be about two or three second-year scholars going," Academy head coach Paul McGuinness told ManUtd.com. 

"It’s a very young team with a number of schoolboys so it will be interesting."

United meet Co Antrim, Strikers FC South Coast and Tus Altenberge at three different venues next month.
