Welcome to the Sligo Branch of the Manchester United Supporters Club, we will update you with all the latest news from the Sligo Branch of Manchester United Supporters Club.

COVID Restrictions:

Further to new rules introduced by the Government to limit transmission of COVID-19, fans aged 18 or over attending Old Trafford will be required to demonstrate that they have been double vaccinated against COVID, provide evidence of a recent negative lateral flow or PCR test, or have valid proof of medical exemption.

Fans shall have and be able to produce one of the following if requested on the day of the match if they are aged 18 or over:

1.      Proof of double vaccination using a valid NHS COVID Pass, or valid COVID-19 status (for people from Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Jersey or Guernsey), or an approved international equivalent; or

2.      Evidence of a valid text or email confirmation of a negative lateral flow or PCR test taken within the prior 48 hours; or

Valid proof of medical exemption (via NHS COVID Pass or accepted equivalent proof of exemption) 


  • In accordance with English Law the Club can refuse to admit or eject anyone aged 18 or over who cannot provide one of the three types of COVID-19 certification listed above.
  • Fans who are able to wear face coverings must do so while in indoor parts of the stadium, such as concourses or hospitality areas, except when eating or drinking. Fans are requested to put on their face coverings when they arrive at the turnstiles.
  • To minimise delays and disruption around turnstiles, fans are strongly requested to:
    • Download their NHS COVID Pass to their phones before arriving at the stadium.
    • Arrive at Old Trafford in plenty of time before kick-off.
  • You must not attend matches being played at Old Trafford if applicable government guidance prevents you doing so, for example, because you have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace; are required to isolate after travel; or because you are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms (including a high temperature, new and persistent cough, or a loss of/change in sense of taste or smell), even if these symptoms are mild.


Premier League:

Aston Villa 2-2 United

United were at times very good in the first half away at Villa on Saturday evening. They got off to the perfect start when the Villa keeper spilled a shot from Fernandes and United took the lead on 6 minutes. United continued to control the first half, although Villa did have a good 5-7 minute spell before the break.

Villa dominated the second half, but when Fred pounced on a loose ball and fed Fernandes he smashed home off the underside of the bar to give United a 2-0 lead on 67minutes.

Villa composed themselves and scored 2 goals in 4 minutes to level the game on 81minutes and that was how it ended.

Despite the scoreline, United were much better that in the FA Cup win at home against the same opposition on Monday night. But having been 2-0 up a draw is disappointing.

United play Brentford away on Wednesday 19 January in a rearranged game following it's cancelation in December.


Champions League:  United will play Athletic Madrid in the last-16 of the Champions League. The first leg will take place in Paris on Wed 23 February with the return leg in Old Trafford on Tues 15 March


FA CUP: United beat Aston Villa at home in the FA Cup 3rd round, on Monday 10 January, thanks to a headed Scott McTominay goal.

McTominay's goal from a lovely Fred cross, was the highlight of the game, in what was another poor performance overall. 

Aston Villa had the ball in the net on two ocassions with both ruled out for offside, the first after a 3 minute delay.

United will now play Middlesorough at home in the 4th round, on Friday 4 February at 20:00.
