Both squads learned lots this week
As part of their development our 2003 age group squads faced Manchester United and Bristol Rovers this week.
The North squad played United at their Aon Training complex at Carrington on Thursday night, while the South boys were in Bristol on Wednesday, ahead of their two-day training camps next week.
Both matches were well contested and produced plenty of material to show the players to aid their learning.
The South squad meet up on Tuesday and Wednesday while the north squad meet up on Thursday and Friday.
Age Group Boys manager Craig Knight said: “In the two games the boys applied themselves very professionally both on and off the pitch, and looked to apply everything that was asked of them.
“We would like to thank both Bristol Rovers and Manchester United for hosting the games and for the warm and accommodating welcome they gave us.”
