United lifted the FA Youth Cup for a record 11th time last season, moving two trophies clear of Chelsea in terms of the most successful club in the prestigious competition.
The ideals and principles that formed the basis of the side that won the first editions of the tournament, between 1952/53 and 1956/57, are still present today.
Head of Academy Nick Cox commented: “Our track record of putting players in our own first team is unrivalled. This place is about more than just football. It’s about young people learning, developing and going on to be successful.”
Meanwhile, supporters can learn more about the club’s history at youth level by attending the United Museum at Old Trafford, where the research was conducted for the information supplied here to support articles first released in United Review, the official matchday programme, and Inside United, the club magazine.
