Mainoo crowned Young Player of the Year
Kobbie Mainoo has been crowned as the new winner of the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year, after a breakthrough 2022/23 season.
Kobbie was a key part of the squad that won the FA Youth Cup in 2021/22, beating Nottingham Forest in front of a bumper crowd at Old Trafford in the final.
Head of Academy Nick Cox said: "Kobbie has had an exceptional season and risen to every challenge that he has faced. He has been at the club from a really young age and has always been an exciting talent but, importantly, he’s shown the work rate and desire to succeed.
"Every time Kobbie has played for an Academy side this year, he has performed to a very high standard and that has given him the platform to go and impress Erik ten Hag and the first-team coaches.
"His debut was a fantastic moment for Kobbie, his family and the dedicated staff who have supported him along the journey. To start a game for Manchester United, at the age of just 17, is a special achievement. We are really proud of the way he has applied himself in first-team training and he thoroughly deserves the recognition of this award."
