Ryan Giggs' son Zach Giggs features as Manchester United u16s win in Northern Ireland again

Manchester United’s young players are enjoying a successful pre-season tour of Northern Ireland.

Playing in the Super Cup NI Youth Challenge Cup, a tournament formerly known as the Milk Cup, Manchester United’s under-16 side have now won two games in a row.

Following a 2-0 win over Coleraine’s under-17s at the weekend, United won again last night.

United beat Ballymena under-17s 1-0 with promising attacker Ethan Wheatley scoring the goal.

Familiar name

A familiar name has featured in both matches, young prospect Zach Giggs.

Giggs is the son of namesake Ryan Giggs, Manchester United’s legendary winger who spent two decades as a permanent fixture in Sir Alex Ferguson’s first team.

Young Giggs has striking similarities to his dad. Once carried around on the Old Trafford turf by his dad in celebration at a United title win, now he is dreaming of one day playing for the club himself. At the moment he is on track.

Giggs Jr is a Wales youth international. There is one major difference to his dad, Zach is a defender. And with two clean sheets in United’s opening two games on tour, he is doing pretty well for himself.
