In a recent first-team training session led by manager Erik ten Hag, Manchester United showcased their commitment to nurturing young talent by including promising defender Harry Amass.
Amass, sporting the number 70 training kit, stood out among the youngsters invited to participate in the session alongside seasoned professionals. The session was part of the team’s preparations for their upcoming Premier League clash against Aston Villa on Sunday.
Signed from Watford last summer, Amass has quickly made an impression within the club. The England youth international has been a mainstay for Manchester United’s under-18s squad, contributing to their flawless record of 14 consecutive wins in the league this season.
Notably, Amass delivered a standout performance in the recent Premier League Cup quarter-final victory over Arsenal, earning praise from United fans on social media who view him as a future star.
Amidst the squad’s training, attention is drawn to the left-back position, where Luke Shaw has faced injury setbacks this season and Tyrell Malacia has been sidelined for the entirety of the campaign.
Additionally, two other young talents, Toby Collyer and Sam Mather, were observed training with the first team. Collyer, a defensive midfielder recruited from Brighton in 2022, has featured prominently for the under-21 side this season. Mather, a winger and FA Youth Cup winner in 2022, recently showcased his prowess with a four-goal performance in the under-21s’ victory over Norwich. Although currently on loan at Rochdale, Mather remains eligible to train with Manchester United and participate in under-21 fixtures, per the terms of his loan agreement.
