A group of Jersey youngsters will train with Manchester United's youth academy at the weekend.

The 40 footballers have been picked by teachers at Jersey's schools to work with the Premier League club's youth players and coaches.

The training sessions will take place at Les Quennevais Sports Centre.

Manchester United's youth academy is led by former first-team player Brian McClair, who made 355 appearances during his 11 years at Old Trafford.

McClair is also set to take part in a question and answer session with local fans on Friday evening.
