Northern Ireland youngster Jordan Thompson won both Man of the Match and Player of the Tournament as his Manchester United side won the Milk Cup for a fifth time in their history.

United beat French club Vendee 1-0 at the Ballymena Showgrounds thanks to a Cameron Borthwick-Jackson header.

United dominated the game in what was a largely drab cup final. French boys Vendee showed their strong defensive capabilities but were unable to find an equaliser.

The deadlock was broken in the 56th minute through substitute Borthwick-Jackson. Demi Mitchell performed some magic on the right-flank before sending over the perfect cross, which Borthwick-Jackson headed home.

Vendee: Lelievre, Mithra, Allemand, Chouiah, Durousseau, Girard, Durand (62 Martin), Baron (62 Davenet), Geoffrit (52 Musseau), Robin, Pinon (42 Tran). Subs: Teillet, Migne

Manchester United: Henderson, Reid (43 Scott), Borthwick-Jackson, Williams, Tuanzebe, Dearnley, Thompson, Gribben, Mitchell (65 Warren), Borg, Obi (52 Rashford). Subs: Warren, Dorrington, Johnston, Byrne.
