Manchester United’s U18s continued their excellent season with a confident 5-2 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers away from home.
Tahith Chong’s run and cross gave Indy Boonen a chance he couldn’t miss within the first five minutes which meant Man United had a firm grip on the game right from the start.
United made it two not long after when Boonen bagged his second of the game before DJ Buffonge made it three before the half hour mark. Nishan Burkart then scored and Chong completed the first half 5-0 rout.
We were guilty of taking our foot off the gas in the second half as we allowed Wolves back into the game with a couple of goals but the overall result and victory was never in doubt.
It is the fourth time this season that Man United’s U18s have scored five or more goals and our new boss Kieran McKenna, who joined from Tottenham Hotspur, is doing a great job so far.
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson watched on from the stands which was great to see from the United youngster who is currently on loan at Wolves and he’d have certainly been impressed. After all, it was only a year or two ago when Borthwick-Jackson was playing for the U18s.
That was an excellent performance from United. McKenna obviously instructed the lads to take it easier in the second half and despite conceding a couple, it was a very professional performance overall and one which continues our excellent season so far.
