Under-18s: Blackburn v United

Saturday 11 November 2023 13:09

Manchester United's Under-18s extended our unbeaten start to the Under-18 Premier League North campaign with a 3-0 victory away at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

Victor Musa opened the scoring after just two minutes played at Brockhall, converting from the penalty spot after he was hauled down inside the area.

Our lead became two after 72 minutes played, with Jayce Fitzgerald setting Musa free to race through on goal one on one. Rounding goalkeeper Solomon Honor, the 17-year-old forward tucked away his effort from an acute angle.

His hat-trick was then completed shortly after, slamming home from close range after Honor had kept out Fitzgerald's initial effort on goal.
Victor Musa is congratulated by his team-mates after completing his hat-trick.
