Under-23s: The story so far in 2019/20
It’s been a great start to the season for Manchester United Under-23s, with Neil Wood’s side making strong progress in two competitions.
The Reds currently sit second in Premier League 2 Division 2, having won five of our seven games to date.
James Garner in particular has started the campaign in fine goalscoring fettle, netting in big away wins at West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United, as well as the 2-0 victory over Reading at Leigh Sports Village.
Our youngsters were given the opportunity to trot out at Old Trafford, where a late goal from Largie Ramazani – one of five the 18-year-old has struck in 2019/20 – secured a 2-2 draw against early leaders West Ham United.
The only league defeat thus far came away at Aston Villa with several players either injured or called up to first-team duty – but Aliou Traore’s consolation effort in that game was certainly one to remember.
Our first foray into the Leasing.com trophy saw our youngsters drawn alongside the senior teams of Doncaster Rovers, Lincoln City and Rotherham United.
A point from our next game – at Doncaster on 29 October – will ensure progress to the next round.
6: James Garner
5: Largie Ramazani
2: Tahith Chong, Dylan Levitt, D’Mani Mellor
1: Angel Gomes, Ethan Laird, Aliou Traore
Our next game involves a trip down to South Wales to play Swansea City in Premier League 2 Division 2 on Monday 21 October. Kick-off is at 19:00 BST and the match will be shown live on MUTV.
