Luton midfielder Tunnicliffe: Winning FAYC with Man Utd among greatest memories

Luton midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe admits winning the FA Youth Cup for Manchester United was a career highlight.

The win was achieved against Sheffield United, which featured Harry Maguire, now United captain.

Tunnicliffe told manutd.com: "It was really special for me. I grew up with all the boys and to win that at a massive club in Manchester United, to be in the club's history and to look at some of the legends who won it as well. It will be forever in the history of Manchester United so to win the Youth Cup was really special.

“They're some of the greatest memories I've had as a player, winning the only proper tournament at that age. It was the first real feeling of being a professional footballer and probably the best memories from that early stage of my career. To do it with my close mates was great.

“Paul [McGuinness] loved it, he loved the history. He taught us a lot about football and being adults and it was really special for us to win it for him."
