FA Youth Cup Winners 2022
Congratulations to the Under 18s side, as they won the 2021-22 FA Youth Cup

Alejandro Garnacho fired Manchester United to their first FA Youth Cup win since 2011 as Nottingham Forest were edged out in front of a record-breaking crowd at Old Trafford.

There were 67,492 in attendance for Wednesday's final, smashing the competition's previous record of 38,187, as the United teenagers provided a much-needed boost at the end of a wretched season for the club.

United captain Rhys Bennett's opener had been cancelled out when Joshua Powell's shot all too easily beat Radek Vitek just before half-time, but Travis Binnion's U18s were not to be denied.

Garnacho replicated Cristiano Ronaldo's celebration after firing home a penalty - wrongly awarded as he had been fouled by Zach Abbott outside the box - and struck a deflected stoppage-time effort to seal a 3-1 victory.

The 17-year-old made his first-team debut last month and starred on the run to the final, where Warren Joyce's Forest made the hosts sweat on their way to winning the competition for a record 11th time.

Sir Alex Ferguson, Bryan Robson and Michael Carrick joined David De Gea, Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes at Old Trafford, where more than 5,700 travelling fans attended the first Youth Cup final in Forest's history.
