FA Youth Cup Final: United Victorious Over Blades

Last night Old Trafford witnessed what could be the best set of youngsters at Manchester United since 1992.

After a draw at Bramall Lane, Manchester United beat Sheffield United 4-1 at home to win the FA Youth Cup for a record tenth time.

Sheffield United were the first side to come close to breaking the deadlock as Aaron Barry’s cross found Jordan Slew who controlled the ball and hit narrowly wide.

Ravel Morrison gave The Red Devils the lead seven minutes before the break as Will Keane’s fluffed shot fell into his path.

Not long after, a handball in the penalty area saw Manchester United given a penalty and Keane calmly converted it to send United in 2-0 up at the break.

The tie was effectively over after 69 minutes when Ravel Morrison scored his second and his teams third.

Sam Johnstone grabbed one back for the Blades but Will Keane finished off the victory for Manchester United minutes before the end.

Many of  the crop from 1992 have gone on to be absolute legends at United and will take part in Gary Neville’s testimonial in the coming days.

Lets hope we see this bunch of youngsters make the breakthrough that in recent years hasn’t been that common at the likes of Manchester United.
