The Twitter feed of Manchester United youngster Jack Kingdon tells an interesting story. Up until this week, Kingdon’s most recent post was celebrating his move to Manchester United’s academy from Morecambe.
Now the most recent post shows Kingdon’s progress. He spoke of his pride at captaining Manchester United’s under-16 side in a Super Cup NI Youth Challenge Match.
Kingdon being asked to captain the team shows how highly the Red Devils consider him already.
United won the match thanks to goals from Victor Musa and Jack Moorhouse. Jacob Devaney provided an assist.
The trip was a good experience for United’s young players, and continues a tradition of the academy playing games in Northern Ireland, which dates back to 1989 when the tournament was known as the Milk Cup.
One to watch
Young defender Jack Kingdon is evidently one to watch for the future. He has already shown that.
Kingdon made his debut for Manchester United’s under-18 side this past season, playing 90 minutes at just 15.
He is likely to get more opportunities over the 2021/22 season, and even if they are sparing, only turning 16 in November, time is very much on his side.
