Just a little over a year since making his Manchester United debut, Di’Shon Bernard is one the scoresheet at the right end.
Bernard was unlucky a year ago to net an own goal on his debut, deflecting the ball into his own net against Astana.
The young defender made a move to Salford City on loan in October, where he has been picking up useful experience.
In midweek he scored his first ever professional goal, and it was a very impressive one.
Sadly for Bernard it was just a consolation as Salford slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Carlisle United.
Even so, the poise Bernard showed to head the cross into the corner showed a striker’s instincts.
Bernard is a long shot to make it at United because of the high level of competition at centre-back at United.
It is still good to see him making a name for himself lower down the leagues.
United’s academy is proud of it’s record producing players who succeed as footballers, even if they do not make the grade at Old Trafford.
Bernard is showing some good signs, and when he performs well like this, it deserves a bit of positive attention.
