How does Rashford's 350 compare with club legends?

Monday 10 April 2023 18:30

On Saturday morning, when Manchester United’s line-up against Everton was released, it was confirmed that Marcus Rashford was set to make his 350th appearance for the club.

The Academy graduate became the latest Red to reach that landmark and capped it by providing the assist for Anthony Martial's second-half finish in our 2-0 win. 

Still just 25 years of age, and with 121 club goals to his name already, the future continues to look bright for the Wythenshawe-born forward.

Following his latest feat, we took a look at how Rashford compares to our top six appearance makers on their 350th match and what they went on to achieve…

United's all-time top appearance maker, Giggs racked up his 350th game during the Champions League semi-final first leg against Juventus on 7 April 1999 - and scored our 90th-minute leveller at Old Trafford. By this point, he had already won the Premier League four times and the FA Cup twice, and was only weeks away from helping the club to achieve our iconic Treble.

Sir Bobby reached his landmark 350th match the year before he achieved World Cup glory with England. On 19 April 1965, Charlton notched our third goal in a 4-2 away win at Birmingham City, and we went on to win the league that season. By then, he had already won one previous title and one FA Cup with the Reds, as well as three consecutive FA Youth Cups on his way into the first team. Of course, he would go on to score a crucial brace in the final as we won our first-ever European Cup in 1968.

Total appearances: 718 | Age at 350th game: 28

Scholesy made his 350th appearance on 28 December 2002, as the Reds defeated Birmingham City 2-0 at Old Trafford, en route to our sixth Premier League title. Another Academy graduate from the Class of ’92, Scholes had been a creative driving force in our Treble success of 1998/99, and he famously scored in the semi-final against Barcelona as we won the Champions League again in 2008. Paul finished his career with an incredible 11 Premier League medals to his name too.

It was early in the 1961/62 campaign when Bill Foulkes reached the 350-match landmark, as United drew 1-1 away to Aston Villa on 18 September 1961. Acclaimed as one of the Busby Babes, he was part of the side that won back-to-back First Division titles in 1956 and 1957. Like Charlton, Foulkes would go on to lift our first-ever European Cup in 1968 - ten years after surviving the Munich Air Disaster.

United beat Spurs 1-0 in Gary Neville’s 350th match, thanks to a Ruud van Nistelrooy penalty, in September 2002. This was a decade after the homegrown right-back had helped the club to win the FA Youth Cup, with the Class of '92. Neville went on to be a Treble winner in 1999 and he later captained the Reds before retiring in 2011 with a wealth of medals to his name, including eight as a Premier League champion.

Our all-time record scorer fittingly netted both goals on his 350th outing for the club, a tight 2-1 victory over arch rivals Liverpool on 11 February 2012. At this point, Wayne had scored 166 times for the club, winning the Premier League four times and the Champions League once in the process. Of course, he went on to bag 253 goals in total and set the target for Rashford and other players in the future to aim for.


As Rashford himself said in an Instagram post today, he has "plenty more in the tank", even if his injury during the Everton game may lead to a temporary pause in his impressive progression under Erik ten Hag's tutelage. This season has been his best for United to date, with our no.10 finding the back of the net 27 times so far in all competitions. 

The 25-year-old has already won five trophies with the Reds, and there is potential for at least two more this term, with United through to the semi-finals of the FA Cup and quarter-finals of the Europa League.

The potential is there for Rashford – who made his debut at the age of 18 – to move further up our appearances and goalscoring charts in the coming years as he continues to build a lasting legacy at the club.

Congratulations on your 350th game, Marcus – here’s to many more!
