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.
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. Click here for highlights of this game http://youtu.be/6rtxpDmYee8 .
The signed jersey is on display in our Headquarters - The Embassy Rooms in Sligo.
2014/15: United finish off the season with a poor 0-0 draw away to Hull City, with Fellaini getting a straight red card. We finish in 4th place on 70 points, 5 behind Arsenal in 3rd and 6 clear of Spurs in 6th.
I think we would have all taken 4th place and a return to the Champions League, an improvement on last season. Over the summer we expect more comings & goings with the players at United. Lets hope it's a sucessful summer.
