Manchester United loanee Jacob Carney in action at weekend
One Manchester United player was in action this weekend out on loan.
Young goalkeeper Jacob Carney featured for non-league side Stockbridge Park Steels.
Carney started as his side held Cleesthorpes Town to a 1-1 draw.
The teenager sent a message out on social media commending his teammates on a strong display.
While the Premier League and EFL have suspended games due to the ongoing health threat, non-league football is still going.
Carney is on his second loan spell at Stockbridge this season and is building up valuable experience.
He has three under-23 appearances this campaign, but there is a lot of competition so it has been good for him to go out on loan.
New research from OLBG’s Fans of the EPL shows non-league attendance went up 90 per cent over the weekend across the country.
The young United loanee was praised for making important saves in the Steels’ match report as the club also reported an increase in attendance.
Just last month, Carney flew out to Portugal to join United’s senior players in first team training and mixed with David de Gea and Sergio Romero under the watchful gaze of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
That will have helped him out and while non-league games still have the go ahead, Carney has a role to play.
