Neil Ryan in training.

Under-18s announce two new signings

Manchester United Academy coach Neil Ryan has added two new faces to his squad ahead of the 2018/19 season.

Reece Devine and Connor Stanley have arrived at the club as first-year scholars and will compete for places in the starting XI, with the Reds opening the campaign with a home game against Derby County on Friday 10 August, live on MUTV.

Devine is an enterprising left-back who turns 17 a week before Christmas, while Stanley operates on the right wing and is a similar age. Both have impressed the United coaches with their talents.

Neil Ryan speaks to MUTV from the training camp in Obertraun.

The young pair join the 11 players announced last month as linking up with the second-years in the group. Those 11 were Jacob Carney, Ondrej Mastny, Ollie Denham, Teden Mengi, Anthony Elanga, Max Haygarth, Mark Helm, Charlie McCann, Harvey Neville and Mason Greenwood.

With clearance received for all those teenagers, the squad is really starting to take shape.

United have sent an Under-19 squad to Germany to compete in the Ruhr Cup this week, ideal preparation for the opener against the Rams at the Aon Training Complex, which kicks off at 13:00 BST.
