Arthur Albiston

Born : 14 Jul 1957
Signed : 01 Jul 1974
Debut : 9 Oct 1974 v Man City (H) League Cup
Goals total : 7
Appearances total : 485
Position: : Full-back
Left United : 01 Aug 1988  

Cup-final display, Albiston spent the next few seasons battling for the left-back berth with Houston. Eventually he made the spot his own and for most of the 1980s was a regular in the starting XI.

Between 1974 and 1988 he made 485 appearances, scoring 7 goals, and appeared in four FA Cup finals, collecting three winners' medals, a club record at that time.

Away from Old Trafford Albiston was somewhat underrated, reflected by his lack of international recognition (he won only 14 caps).

Yet few who watched him week in, week out would disagree with the assertion that there have been few finer full-backs in United’s illustrious history.
