United v Forest: Info for match-going fans

There will be a special pitchside presentation tomorrow, to award league winners’ medals in recognition of the immense contribution made by former Manchester United players in title-winning teams between 1952 and 1975. 

The well-deserved medals can be presented after a change in the English Football League rules on how many appearances players needed to make to receive a winner’s medal.

Under the new rules, 19 former players have been identified as qualifying for a medal for their contributions by playing five or more matches and we will celebrate 13 of those heroes tomorrow afternoon.

The medals will be presented by Sir Alex Ferguson, either directly to players who are still with us or to family representatives of players who have sadly passed away.
