Youth team flying out to Slovakia again

18. October 2014

Manchester United have arranged a trip for the youth team to Slovakia towards the end of October.

Paul McGuinness is set to take charge of a side containing his Under-18s and other younger members of the squad for matches against Banik Ostrava and Banska Bystrica. Both friendlies will take place at the Poprad Stadium.

The excursion is becoming a regular date in the calendar for the Reds – Jack Barmby scored a hat-trick against Konoplyvov in 2011 while Paddy McNair, Andreas Pereira, Adnan Januzaj and James Wilson were in the travelling party in 2012. Last November, Devonte Redmond captained an Under-17 squad in matches against MFK Ruzomberok and Sparta Prague.
