As has become a tradition for many many years, United fans congregated under The Munich Plaque prior to the match against Huddersfield (the nearest home match to the anniversary of the crash) to remember the victims.

Pete Martin led the singing of his song “Pride of Football The Busby Babes”. Kady Cavannagh and Steve Douglas read their poems and Pete led the singing of “The Flowers of Manchester”. The event was MC’d by Rev. John Boyers, Chaplain at Manchester United. Oh and this year yours truly was persuaded to get up and speak!

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 video is below:
