Manchester United legends thrill 900-strong crowd

Manchester United Legends and Darren Perrin’s Select XI before the match

FANS in their hundreds packed out Oakfields Stadium this month as the Manchester United legends returned to Melksham for another thrilling celebration match.

900 fans saw the Man Utd legends take on a Select XI team made up of ex-professionals from the local scene, picked by Melksham Town FC chair Darren Perrin. The event raised over £1,500 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

A host of top names appeared for the United side including Frank Stapleton, Sammy Mcllroy, David May, Arthur Albiston, Lee Martin, Clayton Blackmore, Russell Beardsmore, Andy Ritchie and Fraser Digby.

Playing for the Select XI team included two ex-Melksham players, Fitzroy Simpson who went on to play for Manchester City and in the World Cup for Jamaica and Matthew Bound, who starred for Swansea City. Bristol City’s Steve Phillips also turned out while Bournemouth Premier League star Tyrone Mings also supported the day and signed autographs for young fans.

As well as entertaining the fans on the pitch, the legends hosted a question and answer evening the night before in the club’s Sky Bar.

About the action-packed weekend, Darren said, “The Q&A was very well attended on the Saturday and the audience asked plenty of questions to all of the United players, who were very open and honest in their answers.

“On the Sunday in front of a crowd of 900 it was great for the profile of Melksham Town FC to host so many well-known names and the name of Manchester United.

“The game was also about making money for the Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity that is very close to the club’s heart and we are absolutely delighted to announce we raised just over £1,500. The club is delighted to have helped this magnificent cause.

“The board of directors, committee and staff did a brilliant job in organising the day and we very much look forward to the next one, hopefully in March against the Liverpool legends.

“Finally a massive thank you to all the supporters who supported the event and it would be great to see as many of you as possible at the Oakfields Stadium for the remainder of the season as Kieran and the players strive for promotion.”
