LONDON: Manchester United's next generation provided a glimmer of hope at the end of a troubled season as it won the FA Youth Cup in front of a competition record crowd on Wednesday.

While United's senior stars have laboured through a dismal campaign that sees them languishing in sixth place in the Premier League, the crop of youngsters emerging from the club's academy could provide a brighter future.

Alejandro Garnacho was the hero for United's Under-18 side as it beat Nottingham Forest 3-1 to win their first FA Youth Cup since 2011.

There were 67,492 in attendance at Old Trafford, smashing the competition's previous record of 38,187.

Former United manager Alex Ferguson was in the stands to cheer on the youngsters alongside ex-players Bryan Robson and Michael Carrick, as well as David de Gea, Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes from Ralf Rangnick's current squad. Agencies
