Roy Dixon on Liverpool 1910
The father of United fan Roy attended the very first match at Old Trafford on 19 February 1910...
Just a note... I can remember my father recounting his experience of going to the first game at Old Trafford 100 years ago.
My father also told me about going to watch Newton Heath with his father, who moved to North Lonsdale Street in Gorsey Hill (between Old Trafford and Stretford) so that the family would be near the proposed new ground.
My father had been to the FA Cup final the year before, in 1909, when United won the cup for the first time. As it turned out, five generations of our family watched United in an FA Cup final in the 20th century!
