FA Youth Cup 1992 1993 Leeds Manchester United

Second Leg
Thursday 13th May 1993.
Elland Road,

Attendance: 31,037
Referee: Mr P.Durkin

For the Second Leg 31,037 fans flocked to Elland Road in anticipation of silverware success and to see if the Leeds youngsters could finish the job. It didn’t take United long to extend their aggregate lead with a stunning overhead kick from Jamie Forrester. Paul Scholes levelled on the night with a penalty, but within a minute Leeds made the aggregate score 4-1 with a Matthew Smithard goal.

There were no more goals in the second-half, so skipper Mark Ford hoisted the FA Youth Cup and led his jubilant players on a lap of honour. It was a great triumph for former United star Paul Hart, who was in his first season as Director of Youth Coaching at Elland Road. Five of the Leeds players, Jamie Forrester, Noel Whelan, Rob Bowman, Kevin Sharp and Mark Tinkler were all in the England Under-Eighteen squad which won the European Championship. Those five, plus Mark Ford, who also represented England at under-Eighteen level and Andy Couzens, who gained England under-Twenty-one honours, all progressed to play for the Leeds senior team. Of the Manchester United players, brothers Gary and Phil Neville, David Beckham, Nicky Butt, and Paul Scholes were capped for England at full level, while Keith Gillespie and Robbie Savage were similarly capped by Northern Ireland and Wales respectively.

Leeds United: Pettinger; Couzens, Sharp; Tinkler, Daly, Bowman (Tobin); Smithard, Ford, Whelan, Oliver (Byrne), Forrester.

Manchester United:  Whitmarsh, P. Neville, Riley, Casper, G.Neville; Gillespie, Scholes, Beckham, Irving (Murdoch); Savage, Thornley.
