such a high level and learn­ing how he plays dif­fer­ently to us but em­brac­ing him in our game, it was fan­tas­tic.”

Manch­ester United FA Girls’ Re­gional Ta­lent Club Man­ager Emma Fletcher said: “For Chris to come and meet the team to­day has been fan­tas­tic, we couldn’t have asked for more from the squad this sea­son.

“To get a re­ward like this is a re­ally nice way to recog­nise all of their hard work.” The under 16s squad have had a roller­coaster sea­son and are wait­ing on other re­sults to see if they can win their league. The team also pro­duced some im­pres­sive dis­plays dur­ing their FA Youth Cup jour­ney which un­for­tu­nately ended in de­feat at Read­ing in the semi-fi­nals.

Com­ment­ing on an ex­cit­ing sea­son, Under 16s player Chloe said: “It’s been a bril­liant; we’ve loved ev­ery minute of it. The coach­ing has been ex­cel­lent and the matches have been fan­tas­tic.

“We are gut­ted about the FA Cup but we’ll just come back stronger, it’s some­thing to bounce back from and I know we all will as we are such a re­silient team.”
