United midfielder returns to action with Under-21s…
United’s Under-21s continued their pre-season schedule with a 0-0 draw with Fleetwood Town’s Under-21s at Thorp Arch on Saturday.
The match saw the return to action of Alex Mowatt and Academy manager and head of coaching Neil Redfearn said that the youngster was outstanding.
Mowatt, who has missed United’s pre-season campaign so far started the game and managed 60-minutes in his comeback from injury.
United dominated the early stages of the match but the visitors got on top of proceedings and United had to defend well to keep Fleetwood at bay.
Neil Redfearn said: “We played well in the first half and dominated possession without looking like scoring.
“In the second half they began to get on top and our lads at the back had to defend well to stop them.
“Alex Mowatt was the stand-out player in the game as he came back from injury."
United: Grimes, Booker (Swann), Coker, Killock, Denton (Skelton), Philips, Purver, Mowatt (Crouz), Lyman, Parkin (Stokes), Poleon.
