Southampton 4 – 2 Manchester United

Southampton’s U18’s recorded their first win of the season on Saturday against Manchester United at Staplewood.

Jason Dodd’s men had fallen behind to a deflection on 12 minutes. Kenji Gorre’s striking hitting Jack Stephens to give Keeper Steve Mowthorpe no chance in the Saints goal.

Saints responded in positive fashion an found an equaliser before the break through Corby Moore.

It remained level at the break but Southampton sprung into action just before the hour mark taking a 2-1 lead through James Ward-Prowse

It was 3-1 moments later, with arguably the pick of the goals. Jack Stephens finishing a marauding run from the right-back position by firing past United keeper Liam Jacob.

Jack Barmby, son of former England International Nick, then reduced the arrears to bring the Red Devils back in to the contest but Calum Chambers wrapped things up for the hosts late on.

Youth team coach Dodd was understandably elated with the result.

“We had a game plan which we stuck to, and to a man they were as good as it gets,” he told the club’s website.

“I just told the boys to go out and enjoy it. They all worked so hard and it’s just immense to hear the comments from them about us.”

“It’s an absolute pleasure to work with these lads.”

“I know the boys were still disappointed with the draw at Blackburn last weekend, which I think speaks volumes about the character that they’ve got.”

“It was a thoroughly deserved win and everyone is chomping at the bit to play at the moment,” he added.
