Defender Rhys Bennett gave United the lead after the captain scored a direct free kick in the hosts’ opening match.

United goalkeeper Vitek blundered when he saw the ball slip through his hands after the visitors pressured the game at 1-1 during the first half.
While Forrest continued to press with some proper display in the second half, Garnacho, who was pressing high, was fouled outside the penalty area but the referee flagged the spot with the Argentine not fouling from 12 yards.
Congratulations to us #MUAcademy Under 18 years old! 🏆#MUFC | #FAYouthCup

It was once again the player who secured the trophy’s return home with a superb individual effort that saw the Forrest defender bounce back into the net for Manchester United’s third goal.
