Barrow Welcome Manchester United Duo

11 October 2022

A duo of Manchester United youth players are training with The Bluebirds this week, as the Premier League outfit continue their Pro Experience Programme.

The programme gives players the opportunity to taste an EFL environment, enjoying a flavour of a first team football setup and how a League Two team prepare for matchday.

It is something that Barrow boss Pete Wild is delighted about, especially as it allows Barrow to build links with a club like Manchester United:

"It came off the back of last week's game against United U21 [in the Papa John's Trophy].

"Manchester United were very impressed with the way we conducted ourselves and do our business, on and off the pitch, and asked if we'd be interested in taking on a couple of lads.

"It's fantastic that we can start to build a relationship with one of the biggest clubs in the world and hopefully this is just the start of a strong partnership."
