Hopwood Hall College’s first team progress to round 2 of the Greater Manchester U-18's County Cup with a 3-0 win over FC United’s U18s first team.

Frost, studying a Level 3 Diploma in Sport, scored either side of Bevan’s goal and could have had a third from the penalty spot, if not for a superb save from the FC United keeper.

Bevan, a Level 1 Diploma in Sport student, provided the crowd pleasing second with a composed chip over the opposing keeper.

Rob Johnson, Head Coach at Hopwood Hall’s Football Academy, said of the performance:

“The game was an excellent advert for college football. Ourselves and FC United played a positive, high-tempo, passing game with no cards handed out to either side from the ref. Just how the game should be played.”
