Due to the cancellation of all football due to the Coronavirus outbreak and government aims to minimise the spread of this, it leaves us with very little to talk about in the world of Manchester United.
Before all football at all levels was cancelled though, a few of our members went to watch our Development Squad smash our rivals Manchester City in an exciting 3-0 win. It was evident to all just how much our youngsters are improving game-by-game and we hope to see many of these players in our senior squad in time.
We dominated midfield from the start and the goals came from Megan Hornby, Tara Bourne and Maria Edwards. A visit was also made to watch West Brom Albion’s fixture against Huddersfield Town to watch loanee Charlotte Newsham who featured for 45 minutes of the game. She excelled in her position and made light work of the pacey attacker and winger who she was up against. She is a real star to watch with a superb football brain and has the ability to read the game so well and sniff out the beginnings of any attacks. There is no doubt in any of our minds that she will become a regular in the senior team in time, until then we hope she picks up the valuable experience she needs.
