Manchester United Res 1 Tranmere Rovers Res 2
A TRANMERE reserves side packed with senior players defeated Manchester United 2-1 in a behind closed doors friendly at The Cliff.
Max Power opened the scoring on 12 minutes but United winger Bebe equalised four minutes later. In a close match which saw both sides hit the woodwork, Danny Harrison netted the winner for Rovers with 15 minutes remaining.
l Former Tranmere front man Andy Parkinson has not lost the scoring habit after moving into Welsh Premier League football with Prestatyn Town this season. The 33-year old scored twice as Prestatyn returned to the top of the table with a 4-2 win at struggling Afan Lido.
Parkinson, an FA Youth Cup winner with Liverpool, crossed the Mersey to kick start his career in League football with Rovers, making just over 200 senior appearances for Tranmere between 1997 and 2003.
