Noel Cantwell's FA Cup final shirt

Noel Cantwell's FA Cup final shirt, 1963

After a difficult season which had seen games postponed due to poor weather, United eventually faced Leicester City in the FA Cup final. Although the two sides sport very different colours, concern that black-and-white televisions would be unable to differentiate the two meant that one side needed to change. United won the coin toss, and proudly wore red at Wembley for only the second time.
