Manchester United young players enjoy a successful pre-season tour of Northern Ireland.

Manchester United’s U-16 team have now won two games in a row in the Super Cup NI Youth Challenge Cup, a tournament formerly known as the Milk Cup.

United won again last night after beating Coleraine U17s 2-0 over the weekend.

United beat Ballymena U17 1-0 with promising striker Ethan Wheatley scoring the goal.

Well-known name

A household name appeared in both games, the up-and-coming talent Zach Giggs.

Giggs is the son of namesake Ryan Giggs, the legendary Manchester United winger who spent two decades as an integral part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s first team.

The young Giggs bears striking resemblances to his father. Once carried around the Old Trafford lawn by his father to celebrate a United title win, he now dreams of playing for the club himself one day. Right now he’s on track.

Giggs Jr. is a Welsh youth international. There is one big difference from his father, Zach is a defense attorney. And with two goals conceded in United’s first two games on tour, he’s doing pretty well.
