Manchester United academy director Nick Cox has sent his congratulations to Dan Gore after the youngster made his debut for the club in Tuesday night's victory over Crystal Palace.
Gore has been in and around the first-team squad this season after impressing during the tour of the US. Prior to the Carabao Cup clash the midfielder had been an unused substitute in five Premier League matches.
With United comfortably in front on Tuesday night, manager Erik ten Hag gave the 19-year-old the chance to make his Old Trafford bow on the hour mark, replacing Sofyan Amrabat. Gore imposed himself on the game and there was enough promise shown to give fans optimism for the future.

One man who has overseen his rise to the first team is Cox. After Gore came on for his debut, the United academy boss sent a message to the youngster.
He posted on social media platform X: "Congratulations Dan… debutant number 247 takes his first steps into the professional game. Well done to family, friends and staff that have supported him on his journey so far."
Chances could come thick and fast for Gore this season after making his maiden appearance for the United first team. MEN Sport reported in August that the Reds had no plans to send the midfielder out on loan to gain more experience this year.
Instead, Ten Hag wants to see him remain around the first-team squad this season in a bid to prepare him for further opportunities that may come his way.
