Charlie McNeil scores brilliant first half hattrick in U18 Manchester Derby

The teenager has come back to haunt his former side in grand fashion.

Charlie McNeil scored a first-half hattrick for Man United U18s in their game against Man City U18s on Saturday.

The teenager was on fire for the Red Devils to help his side gain a 3-1 lead going into the half-time break.

The first goal was a swift header from close range from McNeil in the 12th minute, before the young striker scored a penalty seven minutes later.

After the Citizens pulled one back before the break, McNeil then completed his hattrick 43rd minute in controversial fashion.The City U18s had illegally scored a goal when the ball was supposed to be passed back to the player and basically allowed the youngster to walk the ball into the net to make up for the deficit.

The hattrick means that McNeil now has 11 goals in as many U18 Premier League games for the Red Devils this season.  Fans are loving what they’re seeing from the young striker and reacted on Twitter.
