Manchester United’s young stars are celebrating winning the FA Youth Cup for the 11th time. For these young players, it was the first, and a truly special night.

In front of 67,000 fans at Old Trafford, United beat Nottingham Forest 3-1, with Rhys Bennett and Alejandro Garnacho scoring twice.

These young players may never have it so good again. Probability would certainly say all 11 starters won’t become first team regulars, although some might. Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford both told the players to savor the moment. They each know how tough it can get.

The under-18s stars were excited to toast their success. Rhys Bennett, Marc Jurado and Charlie McNeill were among those to celebrate the FA Youth Cup win on social media.

McNeill referred to United’s ‘Class of 22’, while Jurado said he was thrilled to make history. Bennett talked about how proud he was to captain the side on the big night.

These memories will stay with the Manchester United players for a lifetime.

Some of the youngsters, like 16-year-old centre-back Louis Jackson, will stay on to try and defend the trophy next season, while others will step up to the under-23s, and in some cases, the first team.
