A 12 year-old super-kid gets signed by Manchester United, the top under 16s in Europe do battle, and info on the Ketchup Cup - here's a look at the latest kid soccer news from around the UK.

1Imagine being signed by the biggest soccer club in the world when you're only 12 years old. That's what happened to Daniel Rowe. The young superstar was signed by Manchester United for nearly 150,000 bucks US from his under-13 team in Preston. Man. U. has supposedly been following Daniel since he was just six years old.

1Manchester United has also announced it will have a new uniform next year to mark the club's 100th anniversary. The new gold and silver reversible jerseys, which are made by Umbro, look really sharp and will be used as an alternate for the team's usual red colors. They were designed by 17 year-old United fan, Liam Craine. They'll go on sale in Britain on July 17th for about 30 pounds ($43 US.)

1The top under-16 soccer players in Europe have been battling it out at the European Under-16 Soccer Championships being held in England. But the host country went out early - losing 4-0 to France in the semi-final. The French will play the Spanish under-16 team on May 6th for the Championship.

1The Heinz Ketchup Cup is winding down in the UK. The tournament features more than 1500 teams from England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The Cup is open to school teams with players 14 years and under. Last year the cup was hoisted by Holyrood of Glasgow, Scotland.

They're throwing each other in the air, performing possibly dangerous stunts, not even mentioning that they have to wear those skimpy outfits in freezing weather.  And also, my sister got a severe head injury and a sprained neck while doing a stunt. That's more injured than i've seen a basketball player get.
