Re: Cricket at Old Trafford

Bit harsh LDC … all the club have done is demolish the old red rose suite or media centre for fans of a certain age! The new media centre , The Point , Hilton , 2 double tier stands and our iconic members pavilion still make it a fantastic ground to watch cricket. It'll never be the prettiest groun...

Re: Dave Merrington Retires

The day I became a Claret was 4th December 1965, when we drew 1-1 at home to Tottenham.

My memory may well be playing tricks, but I think Frank Saul may have been sent off for smacking Dave Merrington in the face.
