Manchester United Youth Round-Up for April

April is nearly over and thus the monthly round-up of everything that has been going on at the Manchester United Youth Ranks is here!

James Weir

The U-21’s

It was a great month for the Manchester United U-21’s as they enjoyed an unbeaten April. Also a late 93′ goal by Paddy McNair ensured United would beat Reading 2-3 in a nail biting affair and qualify for the 3rd play-off spot. United finished 3rd in the U-21 Premier League and will once again be in contention for the title amongst Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.

My U-21 Player of the Month for April is James Weir after his 2 second half goals earned United a point against Norwich. He also lead the comeback against Reading after scoring an equalizing goal in the 81′ minute. But who was your player of the month?
