Early Goals Set the Tone

In a fiercely contested U18 Premier League North encounter, Liverpool’s U18s faced a daunting challenge against their counterparts from Manchester United.

From the onset, it was evident that Manchester United meant business. The visitors surged into an early lead, capitalizing on free space and defensive lapses from Liverpool. James Scanlon opened the scoring within the first minute, clinically dispatching the ball into the net past Liverpool goalkeeper Kornel Misciur.

Despite the setback, Liverpool tried to settle into the game, but Manchester United’s relentless attack proved too much to handle. Ethan Wheatley showcased his prowess with two quick goals, while Ethan Williams added to the tally with a stunning long-range effort, leaving Liverpool reeling.
