Young Reds' trip to Blackburn abandoned
Manchester United Under-18s' away match at Blackburn was abandoned due to heavy snowfall on Saturday morning.
The young Reds had travelled to Brockhall to face Rovers in the U18 Premier League, with the game kicking off as planned at 11:00 GMT.
However, as rain turned to snow, the match was halted at 0-0 with the players struggling to see the ball on the pitch as the wintry conditions began to settle in.
During that pause around the 10th-minute mark, the blizzard intensified, leaving the pitch completely covered and the match ruled as unplayable, with the safety of both sets of players and staff in mind.
A further announcement on the rearrangement of the fixture will now be made in due course.
Travis Binnion’s side will now turn attentions to our FA Youth Cup quarter-final against Leicester City. That match is taking place at Old Trafford on Thursday, with kick-off at 19:00 GMT.
