It was signing on day at Manchester United today and once again we can boast a host of talent that was spotted playing for us and have been selected to sign for next years under 9’s Academy. Both our under 8’s coaches (Rob & Mohammed) will need to look for some worthy replacements for next seasons campaign after loosing 5 players from their squads to the reds and more to other pro clubs (Stoke City, Everton and Stockport so far). The United players (pictured) are Left to right; Maison, Prince, Brandon, Corey and Felix. Mohammed who has mixed emotions about the signings because he has lost 2 goal keepers at the same time, so he is now on the lookout for a replacement for next season, any takers?
