United's second group game in this season's Alliance Cup competition was against Blackpool on Saturday morning.
And a topsy turvy game saw them eventually lose out, despite having battled back from an early two-goal deficit.
Youth boss Mark Birch said: "We started the game off the pace and we have to be honest and say that we deserved to be behind.
"We went into the break two goals down, but we got back into it when Ryan Carr scored a fantastic goal. By the hour mark we were level, with Mason Hardy putting his penalty away, but we were then our own worst enemies.
"We let Blackpool get back on top and we ended up chasing it a bit.
"They got the two goals to open the gap and we come away feeling disappointed."
