Manchester United's scheduled reserve team match on Wednesday has been postponed following an accident involving two of the club's youth team players.

The players - as yet unnamed by the club - were involved in the accident.

A United statement read: "Manchester United's reserve-team game against Birmingham this evening has been cancelled due to two United youth team players being involved in a serious road traffic accident on Carrington Lane early this afternoon. More information will follow."

The accident, which happened near the club's training ground, comes five months after the death of United's Jimmy Davis in a car accident.

The 21-year-old striker, on loan to Watford, died on the M40 last August, prompting the Nationwide League club's season-opener at home to Coventry to be postponed.

From http://www.rednews.co.uk/ :

RED NEWS has received information that it was Callum Flanagan and Phil Marsh who were involved in the accident with the latter very seriously injured. Further reports from a separate source lead us to fear the worst possible outcome but you will understand that we don't want to say more at this stage until we can get definitive confirmation.

United youngster in 'stable' condition

Manchester United youngster Phil Marsh is in a 'stable' condition following a car accident on Wednesday while Callum Flanagan is recovering at home.
Earlier on Wednesday the club postponed their reserve clash against Birmingham City due to the accident that required Marsh to be airlifted to hospital.

The St Helens-born forward suffered a broken leg in the crash and is in 'stable' condition in Wythenshawe Hospital while Flanagan did not suffer any 'significant' injuries.

"Phil Marsh was airlifted to hospital. He has a broken leg, an arm injury and facial cuts and bruises. He is in a stable condition," read a Manchester United statement.

"Callum Flanagan suffered no significant injuries and did not receive hospital treatment."

Both of the players were in the squad for the club's FA Youth Cup victory over Manchester City, with Flanagan coming off the bench in the tie to head a 76th minute goal.
