UTD Unscripted

We love a good story at this football club.

Some of them are already famous, others as yet untold. Now, by speaking to the protagonists involved, we’re telling them in forensic detail in UTD Unscripted - a series of long-read stories from the heart of the club, told exclusively to us.

We’re going in-depth on all manner of topics. You can read all about some of our greatest goals, classic games and most poignant moments, but also learn more about the personalities behind the scenes that make these tales reality.

New stories continue to be published and we hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoy sourcing them.
