MANCHESTER United U21s are to play their home games at the home of Leigh Centurions this season.

Their first game will take place at Leigh Sports Village on Friday, August 15 when United welcome FA Youth Cup holders Norwich City.

The format of the Barclays U21 Premier League has changed this season, with United in the elite 12-team Division 1 after finishing third last season.

“We’re so pleased to be able to bring Manchester United’s great young players to Leigh this season,” said Leigh Sports Village’s chief executive Simon Toon. “When United played their one-off game at LSV last season it was their highest attendance of the season so the people of Leigh have really made this happen.”
