United’s Stockport-born skillful midfielder Josh Harrop scored a great goal tonight for the U-21s against Norwich at Carrow Road.
The game finished 1-1, but this was without doubt the standout moment…
Nick Powell also made his first appearance in a United shirt after his loan at Leicester was terminated amidst rumours of attitude issues, whilst the much-vaunted Ben Pearson was absent having joined Barnsley on loan. Hopefully we’ll see more of the extremely promising youngster next season if not before.
