Charlie McNeill has wasted no time getting on the scoresheet for Manchester United.
The teenager clinched his move from Manchester City to United last week.
While he was not involved in the under-18s derby against his former side last Saturday, he did get a run out today in a friendly with West Brom.
McNeill scored in a 2-1 victory for United, and posted a video of the goal to his Instagram page.
McNeill was not the only player making his first United appearance who made an impact.
Young signing from Barcelona, Marc Jurado, was also making his first appearance.
The right-back scored United’s other goal, and also shared the video of his strike from inside the box.
United’s under-18 side have had a good start to the season, winning two of three matches so far.
Jurado and McNeill will both now be competing for places and raise the bar in terms of competition.
Both players have exciting careers ahead, and these strikes from both, is a good sign of things to come.
