Manchester United’s Under-18 side beat their Wolves counterparts 4-2 on Saturday morning.

Goals from Rhys Bennett, Isak Hansen, Charlie McNeill and Maxi Oyedele made it two wins from two Premier League Cup games.

Bennett also got an assist as United left it late to grab a victory. Ryan Giggs’ son Zach got a very brief cameo in stoppage time.

It was Giggs’ Under-18 debut, coming at the age of just 15.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was in attendance at the match according to the Manchester Evening News.

There is a long way to go before Giggs or any of his teammates are in Solskjaer’s first team, but the Norwegian values youth development.

 

Being the son of a United legend will only heap the pressure on young Zech, so it is important that not too much is expected too soon.

United were 2-0 up at half-time, thanks to the goals from Bennett and Isak Hansen.

Wolves pulled one back on 53 minutes, when United goalkeeper Eric Hanbury saved a penalty from Ethan McLeod, who converted the rebound.

Tyler Roberts made it 2-2 five minutes from time, before McNeil netted with one minute left for 3-2.

Midfielder Oyedele sealed the win on an afternoon which marked another step forward in Giggs’ development.
