Man Utd name ex-Arsenal defender Harrison Parker (15) in FA Youth Cup squad

Manchester United have named 15 year-old defender Harrison Parker in their FA Youth Cup squad against Scunthorpe United tonight.

The England U16 international joined United this year from Arsenal.

Parker, who had spent nine years with Arsenal, is technically good with an eye for a pass and is already over 6ft tall.

United have a track record of introducing 15 and 16-year-olds to a competition that is for players up to 18 as they look to test them against older opposition.

They have taken a similar stance in the UEFA Youth League with the likes of Shola Shoretire, Angel Gomes and Marcus Rashford among more recent names to be blooded.
