Manchester United have reached the FA Youth Cup final since 2011, when a team with Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard won the competition.
The FA Youth Cup is a competition that’s important to the history of Manchester United, with the Red Devils winning the competition ten times more than any other club.
The tournament has produced stars for Manchester United like Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville and David Beckham.
One of the stars of our youth team in the FA Youth Cup this season is Charlie McNeill, who has scored an astonishing 600 goals at youth level.
A Daily Mail report on McNeill:
“Already very much known as the kid who scored an astonishing 600 goals at youth level, there is absolutely no doubt that 18-year-old McNeill knows how to finish.
“That much was evident as he netted twice against Wolves, adding to his strikes against Scunthorpe, Reading and Everton in early rounds of the competition.
“Hailing from nearby Droylsden, McNeill was originally in United’s academy before making the switch to Manchester City in 2014. In their under-15 side, he scored a stunning 110 goals in 72 games, setting up a further 38.
“There was interest in the prolific striker from all around Europe – including Juventus and RB Leipzig – but United were determined not to let him slip through the net and paid City £1million to get him back in 2020.
“A sign of McNeill’s potential is that he already has a long-term sponsorship deal with Adidas worth over £1m and there seems to be no ceiling on a player who now plays regularly for the under-23 side.”
