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:  3rd it is. United secured 3rd place and a place in next season's Champions League after a 2-0 win away at leicester City on the final day. A dull game by and large but an interception by Greenwood and a quick pass from Fernandes put Martial in. A combination of Morgan and Evans brought down Martial and Fernandes setteled the nerves when he put United ahead from the spot. Lingard robbed Schmichal deep in injury time to seal the victory. United finish ahead of Chelsea on goal difference after a great last 1/3 of the season.

 

FA Cup United crashed out of the FA Cup against Chelsea in the semi-final on Saturday losing 3-1 in what was a very disappointing display. OGS made a number of changes with Pogba, Martial and Greenwood dropping to the bench with Bailly, Fred and James coming in. Before half-time Bailly wnet off having clashed heads twice, the second with Maguire, and in injury time Chelsea tool the lead. Chelsea got a 2nd very early in the second half and De Gea will have to take responsability for both goals however the overall defending was poor. Maguire poked home an own goal before Fernandes pulled one back with a penalty late on.

 

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.

Completation of the Europa League is planned to be played as a mini tournament in Germany in August. United's 2nd leg v LASK is due to be played on 5 August.
