Keane to lead young Man Utd to The Cross

ROY KEANE will lead a youthful Manchester United XI in the Midsummer Challenge game against Cobh Ramblers at Turners Cross in Cork on Saturday night (k.o. 7.30pm).

Luke Chadwick is probably the most familiar name in the Man Utd squad, other than that of Keane, although United’s U-21 manager Brian McClair, has some interesting players from which to select his eventual starting line-up.

Included among these will be Danish striker Mads Timms, who was signed from Odense last season.

Manchester United squad: Thomas Lee (GK), Mark Howard, Paul McShane, Paul Tierney, Richard Jones, Luke Chadwick, Benjamin Collett, Kenny Copper, Colin Heath, Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, Marcus Neumayr, Madds Timms, David Fox, Adam Eckersley, Phillip PIcken, Roy Keane. Ricky Sbragia (reserve team manager); Brian McClair (U-21 manager), John Davin (physio), Ian Buckingham (kit manager)

Cobh Ramblers squad: Peter Cuthbert (Gk), Stephen Yelverton, Robert Brosnan, John Andrews, David Warren, Kieran O’Reilly, Michael Hastings, John Meade, Eoghan Lougheed, Chris O’Shea, Anthony Wolfe, Terry White, Darren Murphy, Eoghan Conlon, James Cummins, Garreth O’Donovan, Tony Tynan, David Moore. Dave Hill (Manager), Pat Finnegan (physio), Darren Leahy/John Meade (Kit manager.)
