Charlie McCann.


A creative ball-playing midfielder who joined the club from Coventry City in 2017/18.

The youngster is a United fan who jumped at the chance to come to Old Trafford and continue to learn his trade at the Aon Training Complex.

He was named on the bench for the Under-18s for the 6-1 win over West Brom in March 2018 and racked up 24 appearances at that level in 2018/19 under head coach Neil Ryan, scoring five goals.

McCann represented Republic of Ireland at the Under-17 European Championship.
