National League club Altrincham have announced that they will be offering a 50% discount to Manchester United fans for Saturday’s game against Solihull Moors to celebrate new loan signing Maxi Oyedele.
The 18-year-old joined the Robins on a short-term loan deal from United in January and he has already scored in two of his three appearances for the club.
After impressive cameos, the youngster is all set to start against Solihull this weekend and ahead of the game, Altrincham have a pleasant surprise for United fans.
The Robins have announced that fans bringing a Man United shirt on Saturday will get half-ticket admission when buying tickets at the J.Davidson Stadium.
United’s faithful can also book tickets through the club’s official website ‘www.altrinchamfc.com’ with the code ‘mufc50’ but must present proof at the turnstile.
Red Devils fans can also present their season ticket or the Carabao Cup ticket as proof of support.
Oyedele has nearly 50 appearances to his name for the United U18 side. He is a defensive midfielder by trade, who can also play higher up in the number eight role.
The teenager, who has represented Poland at the U19 level, will be aiming to continue the good work at Altrincham before breaking regularly into United’s U21 set-up.
Altrincham manager Phil Parkinson believes Oyedele has a great future ahead of him, having shown a strong mentality and stayed patient for his opportunities at the club.
He said: “Maxi has come to us this season to gain valuable senior first-team football experience.”
“He’s come in from the very top of full-time football and is experiencing what the opposite end looks like.
“Even though he’s coming in from a club the size of Manchester United, it’s not a given that he will walk into the side.
“He’s had to be patient and ‘earn his stripes’ with us, the same as all the other players he’s currently playing with here at Altrincham.
“But his mentality is one of the best I’ve seen in a young pro and I think he’s got a great future in the game ahead of him.”
