United win U18 PL National final

FIRST HALFFletcher was presented with an early effort after United won a free-kick 20 yards from goal. His effort was blocked well by the Chelsea wall, but showed early promise from Adam Lawrence’s side.

Wheatley’s first opportunity of the game came soon after, after a long ball from the back found the 18-year-old in hoards of room. His shot came back off the post before Max Merrick held on to keep the Reds at bay.

It didn’t take Wheatley long, however, to make amends, as he opened the scoring after 22 minutes played. Played through on goal by Williams, the Stockport-born forward neatly placed his effort past Merrick sparking wild celebrations.

Louis Jackson’s terrific block kept our slender first-half lead intact as we approached the interval, bravely blocking a Tyrique George drive that looked destined to find the back of the net.
