Yeovil 3-2 Manchester United XI


Yeovil came back from one down and hit three against a young United side, who then grabbed a consolation goal.

While the goals tally gave the 6,664 spectators inside Huish Park good value for money, the match was less about the result than it was about the occasion.

The afternoon belonged to Darren Way, the Yeovil player whose prosperous career was cut short by a serious car crash.

To the crowd's delight, the Glovers' legend was able to play a two-minute part in the match.

Yeovil hit the bar early on before Rodrigo Possebon gave United the lead, grabbing his second goal in a week.

He made way at half time for Robert Brady and then came an inspired Yeovil fightback.

They grabbed three goals in four minutes, first through Jean-Peal Kalala from 25 yards, then from Sam Williams from close range and then from an Adam Virgo header.

Brady grabbed a late consolation, but the match ended 3-2, meaning United's pre-season record now stands at played three, won two, lost one.

Their next test will be at Oxford United on Tuesday.
