The Manchester United academy, now based at Carrington, is famed for its success. More than 100 international footballers have been moulded from the coaches at United, more than 200 have graduated from the academy to the first team.
Such a historic and famed system deserves coverage. Sometimes, that is forthcoming from the national newspapers, but such coverage is limited and irregular. At Academy Man Utd, the aim is to provide consistent coverage, clear.
Only others like us know the teams inside out, and because of this we don’t assume you know all those being written and spoken about on Academy Man Utd. Our information aims to be written with clarity, deliberately obvious.
Academy Man Utd hopes to provide you with all the information on Manchester United’s fine academy, whether it’s through us or relaying information from one of the other fantastic followers of the Reds’ youth sides that work tirelessly to shed light on the next generation.
Changes are aplenty at Carrington currently, and not just at first team level. Class of ’92 member, treble winner and United legend Nicky Butt has recently been appointed as academy chief and thus much has been adapted. The academy is modernising itself, the scouting set-up has been rapidly expanded, Kieran McKenna has taken charge of the under-18 side.
Through both Twitter and this website, Academy Man Utd attempts to provide you with updates on these changes, as well as all under-23 and under-18 fixtures and news. Should important information, such as tournaments or transfers, occur at under-16 and under-15 level, we’ll attempt to bring those to your inbox too.
Not only that, Academy Man Utd is the most regular and clear website and account on United’s loanees across the divisions and across the continent.
Founded in autumn 2016, we at Academy Man Utd honestly believe that the academy at our club is the finest in the world, and therefore deserves recognition. Not only that, but next time you’re sharing a pint with your mates, you’ll sound like a youth aficionado because of Academy Man Utd.
