Regan Poole enjoys solid debut for Manchester United’s U21s in win over City

by Sam Peoples

Regan Poole enjoyed a solid debut for Manchester United on Thursday night in the 1-0 win over Manchester City.

Playing in defensive midfield, not the centre-back role we expected him to play as he was used there by Newport County, Poole was confident and composed in what was a big game against our City rivals.

Having had to wait from August 2015 to February 2016 in order for him to be given international clearance to play, Poole has had to be extremely patient but he showed against City that the wait was worth it.

Having already been named for the Welsh Young Player of the Year award aged just 17, the future bodes well for Poole as does his strong performance against City.

Here’s hoping he will now be able to make some consistent appearances with United’s U21s and work his way through the ranks. Well done Regan on your debut.
