Youth Cup draw

Last updated : 07 November 2002 By Martyn Elliott

Man United have traditionally done very well in this competition but the Old Trafford production line has dried up a bit in the last couple of years, so the visit of Brian McClair’s side is little to fear.

Kenny Wharton and Peter Beardsley have done a great job with the Academy Under-19s team and they currently lie second in the FA Premier Academy League, so they will be hoping to mount a strong challenge for the cup.

The fantastic attacking play and shaky defence of the first team is obviously replicated at youth level with their record this season reading:

Played 11 Won 8 Drawn 0 Lost 3 For 37 Against 20

The tie is to be played before December 7.
