MUFC's my middle name

Of all the ways to show your support for the Reds, changing your name by deed poll is one of the more unusual options. That didn’t stop David Wood however, who now goes by the extended moniker of David Andy Manchester United Fluffyduck Cantona Wood.



After surviving Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a rare breed of cancer on two separate occasions, the 32-year old from Nuneaton decided to live life to the full and was desperate to incorporate the initials MUFC into his name.

“I do tend to do these things, I'm mad as a balloon!” he joked. “I have survived cancer twice, the first time I was four and again when I was nine. Going through chemotherapy is never easy, especially when you are that young, so ever since I've always tried to live life the best I can.

“I am a huge Manchester United fan and wanted to add the club to my name. Cantona was my favourite player so he had to be in there, but Fluffyduck is completely random.”

Despite David’s love for his new title, there is one downside to the change.

“My girlfriend now refuses to marry me because she doesn’t want to be called Mrs Manchester United Fluffyduck Cantona Wood!" added Dave. "Most people think it’s brilliant though and I love that I have MUFC in my name.”
