Starts today, United play tomorrow.
Does anyone know our squad?
Where are all our Belfast Reds? No info on which players are playing?
Hewson is the only 2nd year scholar to old, but the other and first year scholars should be 14 and than we need 4 more (Strickland, Moffatt, Williams and Bryant?) Woods and Wellback are playing today in the Nordic open for the FAs u-17s.
7.00 Manchester Utd 5 v 0 Liechtenstein Coleraine Showgrounds
2 irish lads scored
cathcart,the captain scored the first, cant remember the name of the other lad who scored the last one, was a belter too
GB I think is a great guy, I'm not saying this because I want a new tag...
Team: Zieler, Eckersley, Dudley, Chester, Cathcart, McCormack, Bryan, Derbyshire, Brandy, Fagan and Drinkwater
United's scored through Cathcart, Fagan 2 (1 pen), Brandy and a 30 yard screamer from McCormack.
United made 5 subs but I have no news as yet....
I would have thought Hewson and Amos went on the tour, so that leaves five other players......Eikrem and Galbraith didn't go.....
Hewson is too old. The others are born after the new year.
FORMIDABLE FERMANAGH, FIVE-STAR MAN U!
Manchester United’s Irish contingent felt right at home as they weighed in to help bury little Leichtenstein under an avalanche of goals in the Premier Milk Cup.
Glengormley lad Craig Cathcart started the ball rolling for Paul McGuinness’ team after 14 minutes then Conor McCormack cracked home a long range belter to leave the national side reeling on the end of a five-goal deluge.
In between Dubliner Christopher Fagan picked a brace and Febian Brandy also got in on the act to please a large crowd who cheered on the Red Devils’ mini marvels.
Cathcart struck after the Leichtenstein defence failed to deal with a ball into the box. The rising star controlled the ball and planted a right foot shot past the keeper.
Two goals in quick succession sealed United’s victory. Fagan side footed the ball home and within two minutes brilliant Brandy cut in from the left flank before rounding the keeper to score.
When Brandy was brought crashing to the ground inside the box early in the second half Fagan stepped up to convert the resulting penalty.
Two minutes from time McCormack put Leichtenstein out of their misery with a stunning finish.
Last year’s beaten finalists Chelsea kicked off their campaign with a 2-1 win over a resilient County Antrim at Ballymena Showgrounds. Sergio Terjara and Jack Cork were on target for the Stamford Bridge outfit and Ryan McLoughlin’s reply make sure of an intriguing contest to the final whistle.
Top Ulster side were County Fermanagh who eclipsed FC Brussels 3-1 with gols fro Ryan Smyth, Andrew Little and Richard Flaherty. Boss John Quinn praised his players for a superb performance: “We weren’t given much chance going into it but the lads were terrific throughout the entire game,” he said.
County Armagh put up a solid show against Spartak Moscow but went down 2-1. John McLoughlin scored for the Ulster side but Artur Maloyan and Alexandr Yaroslavtsev made sure of the points for the Russians.
Mark Okoko’s goal was enough to give Sheffield United victory over San Francisco Seals while four goals from Cherry Orchard’s Niall Fitzmaurice gave the Dublin side a comfortable win over New Zealand’s Otago.
Carlos Santos earned FC Porto a point with his strike against Rapid Vienna.
County Down held Mexico’s talented Cruz Azul to a scoreless draw while County Londonderry went down 1-0 to Universidad Catolica.
Bayern Munich were too strong for Malta. Goals from Christoph Hasselmeier, Florian Elender and Yannick Kakoko were enough to secure success.
FC Porto 1, Rapid Vienna 1;Otago 0, Cherry Orchard 4; FC Brussels 1, Co. Fermanagh 3; TuS Altenberge 0, Co. Tyrone 0; Sheffield Utd 1, San Francisco Seals 0; Spartak Moscow 2, Co. Armagh 1; Cruz Azul 0, Co. Down 0; Chelsea 2, Co. Antrim 1; Universidad Catolica 1, Co. Londonderry 0; Bayern Munich 3, Malta 0; Manchester Utd 5, Leichtenstein 0.

Milk Cup Draw
We play Spartak Moscow in the quarter-finals tonight!
No.....I have a friend who is in Belfast watching all the United games and is sending me the line-ups etc
I believe the final will be on BBC Belfast though....let's hope we get through..
Febian Brandy was the toast of his Manchester United team mates last night with a sensational solo strike to book the Red Devils a last eight clash with Spartak Moscow.
The Mosside marvel skipped into the box and ran rings around County Tyrone keeper Mark Leonard before guiding the ball into the net after six minutes.
Tyrone had two half chances in the second half but skipper Aiden Lynch blew his chances.
One goal turned out to be enough for Paul McGuinness' boys who fired blanks in the first half. Danny Drinkwater sent a shot over and Leonard palmed away a Chris Fagan shot then denied Brandy at full stretch.
Later Fagan shot past the angle when he was well placed.
No Evans in the squad according to bbc
Ron-Robert Zieler; Richard Eckersley; Mark Dudley; James Chester; Craig Cathcart; Conor McCormick; Antonio Bryan; James Derbeyshire; Febian Brandy; Christopher Fagan; Daniel Drinkwater; Benjamin Amos; David Williams; Scott Moffatt; Michael Bryant; Joseph Dudgeon; Kenneth Strickland.
My mate hasn't seen him Belfast either although he was on the official list I got from Carrington.......
By the way.....the bbc have it wrong......it is Conor McCormack and Mitchell Bryant.......
He would have played some, he is a good talent.
What is with these Irish lad and C. Their Christian names all start with C. Was that something in the laws when they were born?
Eikrem is playing in the Nordic open in the Faroes for Norway u-17.
really happy to see brandy on fire again
we lost 1-0 to Spartak.
Next we ´ll meet Sheffield Utd for 5th-8th place.
Same team as against Liechtenstein......Williams on for McCormack was the only sub.....
From their site
Lost 0-1 to Catolica.
We ended in 6th place.
Do you know the team and subs, Tony?
Team: Zieler, Strickland, Dudley, Chester, Cathcart, McCormack, Brandy, Derbyshire, Williams, Fagan, Drinkwater
Subs: Moffatt (6), Bryant (11)
Brandy was sent off.........
Saw a couple of the games (Co Tyrone & Sheffield Utd) matches. Felt we were reasonably solid at the back but generally lacked imagination going forward. When we went one nil up v Tyrone we sat back and let them come at us - they had a couple of half chances but were not a real threat but we really weren't intersted in finishing them off which was disappointing. Bit lucky in the Sheffield game but kept going. Nobody really stood out for me unlike when I saw the Milk Cup match in 1991 when we destroyed Liverpool 4-1 in Portstewart. I went away that day seriously excited by what I saw...... I didn't realise at the time but I was seeing a group of 16 year lads by the names of Beckham, Scholes, Neville & Butt!
Team v Liverpool - 25/7/91
Pollock, Neville, O'Kane, Murdock, Riley, Gillespie, Beckham, Butt, Roberts, Savage, Thornley.......Scholes (9), Rawlinson (6), K. Brown (8)
Scorers: Gillespie 3, Beckham pen
Went on to beat Hearts 2-0 in the final......
If you go on the Milk Cup website under history....there are a couple of photos of that team....
Did anyone see Dax McCarty of the US play? He's one for the future, apparently. I know he was drafted by FC Dallas (MLS) this year.
