Shoretire, who turned 17 earlier this month, was handed his first professional contract last Monday after his impressive performances with the U23s.
Born in Newcastle to a Nigerian father, Shoretire has been with United since the age of 10, but he started his career at Newcastle United.
The youngster, according to Manchester Evening News, initially joined Manchester City’s academy before switching to United at the age of 10. Since then his career has been on an upward trajectory.
He had no impact on Sunday’s outcome as his senior colleagues got the job done.
Rashford, David James and Bruno Fernandes got a goal each as United maintain the second position behind City who have a 10-point cushion at the top of the log.
