1984-2014 30 Year Anniversary:
In early March 1985 Branch members made their way to Old Trafford for our Branch's first trip where the match programme cost £0.35 and match ticket for the "K" stand cost £3.80. A crowd of 51,150 saw United drew 1-1 with Everton, Olsen scoring for United and both sides missing a penalty. Check out http://youtu.be/6RWiT2pghUE for highlights of the above game.
30 years on, the anniversary was marked by a branch trip to United V Crystal Palace on Nov 8th 2014. Sir Bobby Charlton, Bryan Robson & Andy Cole presented Branch Members with a framed signed jersey to mark this milestone. United won the game 1-0 with Juan Mata scoring the only goal.
