Praise for youngsters

Alex Dyer's reserves moved up to third place in the Barclays Reserve League South thanks to an impressive 1-0 win at Arsenal tonight.

Ashley Miller scored the only goal of the game for a young United side with 20 minutes remaining to secure all three points against a strong Gunners outfit, featuring several young players that have tasted first team experience - including Jack Wilshere, a player once linked with a move to West Ham.

A delighted Dyer, talking to whufc.com called the unexpected victory ' a great result', adding:

"The boys were brilliant, worked hard and put in a good performance. I know some people thought that before we came here that we wouldn't stand a chance because we were very young but they were very young as well.

"But it is still Arsenal and they are in the FA Youth Cup quarter-final. It was great win and the boys are chuffed with it."
