Two last names related to Leicester are of course Savage and Wellens, with Robbie and Ritchie both being influential midfielders at this club, and their sons both named Charlie were in Leicester for the event at Seagrave on the 4th of April.

Wellens and Savage are both young talents in the Man Utd squad and part of their strong U.23 set up as they are currently 4th in this division.

We all know that .

The two young talents do have fathers with a life in both camps as we all know they both had youth careers at Man Utd and later became first team footballers at Leicester. Great to see that football grows in generations and that sons of former players makes the grade. Charlie Savage was born in Leicester but has decided to represent Wales as his father. Charlie is a Wales youth international with U.17, U.18 and U.19 caps, Robbie Savage played 39 times for Wales in his years as a player.

But as we all could see, Charlie Savage and his Man Utd had difficulties as Leicester and their U.23’s are on a path at the moment that you should not fault at all. They are starting to looks as a good unit as points are picked up and players also get international appearances with last names such as Alves, Braybrooke and Wanya Marcal shining heavily.

The strong 3-2 home win vs. Man Utd yesterday is another great result in a row of appearances under coach Ben Petty. The team is also set up with a number of young players and we will see them in this set up for another two or three years, with possible first team debuts close as well being done allready.

Goals yesterday came from Braybrooke, Brunt and Wanya Marcal. For a full update on all stats and facts always follow up from our links on our season posts.
