Class of '92 host kickabout for young school children
Members of Manchester United's iconic Class of '92 joined young fans for a kick about as they prepare to return to Old Trafford for the Treble Reunion match on 26 May.
The pupils from Co-op Academy Swinton, Stretford High School and Waterhead Academy in Oldham had earlier been taking part in an inter-school football tournament with the Foundation, and were delighted with the opportunity to ask advice of the Manchester United legends.
Jack, a year 8 pupil from Co-op Academy Swinton, said: "What can I say; we've just been playing with absolute legends! They talked about how they felt the night they won the Treble and when the final whistle blew they just felt brilliant."
The Neville brothers and Nicky Butt will be back at Old Trafford with their former team-mates on 26 May, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of winning the Treble on that exact date in 1999. The Manchester United Legends will once again be taking on FC Bayern Legends in the celebratory event to raise funds for Manchester United Foundation.
How the Class of '92 surprised young Reds
Our Foundation does amazing work! 🤟 Watch this surprise kickabout for young Reds with Butty, Giggsy & the Nevilles...
Unable to join his teammates for the Treble Reunion due to commitments as manager of Wales, Ryan Giggs said: "I'm really sorry I can't be at the match but I know everyone will have a brilliant time and we'll raise lots of money for a brilliant cause."
Fans can look forward to welcoming Sir Alex Ferguson and a host of Manchester United legends back to the Theatre of Dreams, including many players who graced the Hallowed Turf in 1999 and lifted the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League trophies during that iconic season.
All proceeds will go to Manchester United Foundation's work with young people across Greater Manchester.
