U18s: Middlesbrough v Man Utd

United looked in control with a two-goal cushion under their belt, and started to see chances flow from the half-hour mark onwards, when Moorhouse’s low centre from the right byline found Victor Musa, but he couldn’t adjust his footing to connect with the ball.

Moorhouse then went for goal himself from distance, with his powerful shot stinging the palms of goalkeeper Connor.

Then came the late first-half flurry, as Williams made it three on 39 minutes – with arguably the pick of the goals.

United played it out from the back brilliantly to unleash Scanlon down the right, who fed Moorhouse and he in turn found Williams with a first-time pass. Williams set himself before firing into the top left-hand corner superbly, from just inside the box.

Williams turned provider again two minutes before the break, with the Reds’ set-piece prowess again paying off. Jackson was the man on the end of the in-swinging delivery this time, heading across brilliantly to put us four ahead at the interval.
