Former Manchester United full-back Arthur Albiston made 485 appearances in the famous red shirt during an impressive 14 seasons at Old Trafford – and he remains tenth in the club’s list of all-time record appearance-makers.
Albiston made his Reds debut against Manchester City in October 1974 as United won 1-0 in a League Cup fourth round tie at Old Trafford. It was a sweet result for United, then in Division Two having been relegated from the top flight in the previous season.
Then Reds boss Tommy Docherty handed 17-year-old Albiston his senior bow in the game and was rewarded as the teenager earned a penalty when his cross was handled inside the box. Spot-kick king Gerry Daly converted to handed ‘Doc’s’ young team a morale-boosting win.
Scottish international Albiston is the latest to feature in a video series of ex-Reds reminiscing about their United career highlights.
