Annual Raffle: Our Annual Raffle, with a donation to be made to the North West Hospice has been launched. It was planned to hold the draw on 30 April but due to COVID-19 it will now take place on Friday 28 August.

As we all know, due to COVID-19 charaties are experiencing great difficulties fund raising and for this reason on 10 May 2020 we prersentated the North West Hospice with an initial cheque of €2,000.00, with a further donation to take place after our raffle has taken place.

We have since received fantastic news from the Manchester United Foundation that in conjuction with our raffle they will present a cheque for £1,000.00 to the North West Hospice.

Football clubs come in for alot of critisim at times but we are very proud of our Club, Manchester United, in making this donation to our local Hospice.

 

Tickets have been distributed to all members but the COVID-19 pandemic is severely effecting our efforts to sell out tickets at the moment.

If you want to buy a ticket(s) we can accept payment through Palpal (fatighe16@gmail.com) or Revoult (086-8341775). Your contribution is greatly appreciated.

 

 

Premier League: The Premier League has returned with a bang, all behind closed doors.
 
United made it 3 wins in a row with a 5-2 win over Bournemouth at home on Saturday. Bournemout took the lead against the run of play thanks to poor defending from Maguire and Wan Bissaka and De Gea was beaten at his near post. However a fine left foot strike from Greenwood leveled it before Rashford put United ahead a few mins later from the penalty spot. Martial then added a 3rd with another great strike just before the break. A poor return pass from Matic saw Bailly streaching and was alleged to have handled the ball on the 18yard line and Bournemouth were awarded a penalty which King scored to get them back into the game early in the 2nd half. Greenwood scored again to make it 4-2, this time with a right foot strike before Burno Fernandes added the fifth with a direct free kick. 
 
Aston Villa away at 20:15 on Thursday is next.

 

FA Cup: United beat Norwich, 2-1 after extra time, away in the quarter finals on Saturday 27 June. Ighalo opened the scoring before Maguire grabbed the winner with just 2 mins left. United will now play Chelsea in the semi-final on Saturday 18 June at 3pm in Wembley Stadium.

 

Europa League: United beat LASK of Austria  5-0 away in the round of last 16 on Thurs 12 March in what could well be our last game of the season. Ighalo opened the scoring, James, Mata, Greenwood and an injury time goal from Periera completed the scoring.
