As has become a tradition for the past few years, a couple of thousand United fans congregated under The Munich Plaque an hour before the match against Stoke on 2nd February (the nearest home match to the anniversary of the crash).

Pete Martin led the singing of his song “Pride of Football The Busby Babes”. Kady Cavannagh and Steve Douglas read a poem each and Pete led the singing of “The Flowers of Manchester”. The event was MC’d by Rev. John Boyers, Chaplain at Manchester United.

Although this event is for the fans by the fans, United have supported us by providing the PA system and printing the brochures, for which we are grateful.

The full 18-minute video is below:
