Gibson is normally a central midtfielder..
He should still be with us. He is an u-16 player.could someone tell me if Kenny Strickland who played for United in the milk cup is still at man utd or was he released or is he maybe still in u-16's ?????
I think he's a central defender if that helps..
Ollie Norwood to start, Ajose and Stewart on the bench.Einar15 said:According to thefa.com Man Utd have 3 players in the England u-16 squad that will play against Wales in the Victory Shield. The players are: Nicky Ajose-07/10/91(d.o.b), Oliver Norwood-12/04/91, Cameron Stewart-08/04/91.
Thanks a lot for your information.TonyPark said:United's Under 16's defeated Stoke City 4-1 at the Pirelli Stadium yesterday. After a disappointing 1-2 defeat to Manchester City the previous week, the young reds were back in form and were too good for the Stoke juniors.
Team: Bulmer, Moffatt, Gill, "Swiss triallist", Strickland, Farrelly, Lampkin, James, Bryant, Potts, Dudgeon
Subs: Longworth (3), McMaster (6), Gill (9), Farrelly (11)
Gill and Farrelly came back on later in the game......
Goals: Bryant 2, James, Gill
Regular keeper Gary Woods will be out for the rest of the season after sustaining an injury in training that required him to be taken to hospital in an ambulance. No news on what exactly happened as yet. It will look like Niki-Lee Bulmer and perhaps Conor Devlin will now share goalkeeping responsibilities for the 16's.
The previous week, United lost to City 1-2. Bryant scored the goal but I don't know the full team. The following seven players did turn out though...Woods, Dudgeon, Strickland, Potts, Lampkin, Bryant, Ajose
Finally, Floribert N'Galula is still out with his recurring hip problem. He hardly played at all last season, and has missed most of this campaign so far.
More news to follow....

http://www.eurosport.com/football/premiership/2006-2007/sport_sto997910.shtmlManchester United are taking a close look at Panama youngster Gabriel Torres, with the forward due back at Old Trafford in February.
After spending some time training with Sir Alex Ferguson's side, the 18-year-old has returned home to his current club San Francisco FC and celebrates his birthday on Tuesday.
"I have always said that, in my 10 years that I have managed in Panama, Torres is one of the greatest prospects that Panamanian soccer has, with enormous potential," commented Gary Stempel, a British coach who is one of the most respected figures in Panamanian footballing circles.
"The important thing is that Torres will return in February to England to continue the preparation."
Torres has commitments with San Francisco, where Stempel is technical director, but United are keen to have another look at him after he bagged a hat-trick in a practice game, where Gary Neville was on the opposing side.
Although he also visited Elche in Spain, Stempel is talking of a possible loan to Royal Antwerp if United decide to pursue their interest in the youngster.
"Manchester are going to send the player the travel documents so that he returns to train for at least another month," Stempel told Prensa.com.
"For a 17-year-old, he's had an unforgettable experience."

Welbeck 35, Chambers 55
UEFA Under-17 Friendly Mini Tournament
Monday 30 October 2006
England Head Coach John Peacock singled out Danny Welbeck for praise after the Manchester United starlet scored his first ever England goal in the 2-0 win over Belgium on Monday night.
Young Welbeck, who impressed Peacock throughout the whole week, enjoyed his special moment in the 35th minute as England cruised to victory - a result which meant England finished second in the UEFA Mini Friendly Tournament behind Spain.
After England attacked the Belgium box, the ball fell invitingly for Welbeck who homed in on goal before foxing the keeper with a clever dummy and rolling home.
"He took his goal really well," said Peacock. "He has had a good week. He has intelligence and technically is proficient. He has done well. I was pleased with Krystian Pearce too. He stuck to his task really well and made important blocks and headers."
England doubled their advantage on 55 minutes with a goal that left Peacock purring. After good build-up in midfield, Henri Lansbury threaded a perfect ball through to Ashley Chambers who raced clear before beating the keeper.
"It was a super goal - it showed what we can do," said Peacock.
The victory meant England, captained on the night by Chelsea's Michael Woods (below), concluded their trip on a winning note, having lost to Spain and drawn with Portugal earlier in the competition. Peacock was a happy man but warned his side that improvements still need to be made if they want to challenge the best in the world.
"I was pleased with the result. We did not concede a goal and passed the ball well in spells, but at times there were too many unforced errors. We gave it away cheaply."
Peacock said he would be returning to England with a smile on his face and plenty of positives to consider before heading out to the Algarve in February.
"This has been a really good week in terms of the education and development of the players. It's been a good learning curve for them."

No, Gibson has not scored for Antwerp so far.Longlivekeano said:I think Antwerp just won by 2-0 against a club called Royal Ex. Verto. I think Dong scored with a volley & another scored by darren Gibson (?).
Anyone heard of this chap?Any one see that young lad (I think 14) in the youth side called Gary Bull?
I think one of of his parents is Moroccan and his middle name means something in Arabic - Ulluah or somthing like that.
Scored tons and tons of goals, great two feets and has great pace. A bit like a cross between Andy Cole and Mark Hughes.
Yes....he only turned 16 last week and became the youngest ever player to feature in the Scottish League when he came on as a substitute in the 1-1 draw with Queen of the South on the 30th September, aged only 15.Einar15 said:United have been linked with 16 year old midfielder from Scotland called James McCarthy born 16. november 1990. He plays for Hamilton Academy. He has also been linked with Aston Villa, Bolton and Rangers....
Also Oliver Norwood and Nicky Ajose have been chosen to play for England u-16's in the Victory Shield against Scotland.
No pressure there then.andersj said:I hear that he has also been promised a place in the U19 squad that will play against Italy in January. The Irish manager at youth level, who once trained Keane, Sean McCaffrey, claims that he has a bigger potential than Keane once had.
