Manchester United tickets now on sale for July trip to Northern Ireland

Tickets for the Manchester United Academy players’ Northern Ireland visit during July are now on sale to celebrate a first Milk Cup triumph by the English giants in 1991.

That Manchester United team - captained by David Beckham and also including Gary Neville, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Northern Ireland international Keith Gillespie - lifted the trophy by beating Scottish side Heart of Midlothian in a thrilling final.

And now three of Northern Ireland’s top youth sides will face some of Manchester United’s brightest prospects later on this summer.
