McClair and May speak to FC United ahead of Gala Dinner

McClair and May speak to FC United ahead of Gala Dinner

Our confirmed guests for the Gala Dinner, Brian McClair and David May have spoken to FC United ahead of the event, which is being held at the Midland Hotel on 18th May.

McClair who joined United from Celtic in 1987 became the first player since George Best to score more than 20 goals in a season, going on to score 127 goals in an eleven year playing career with United.

More adept at taking on mouthy left-backs than he was at taking penalties, Choccy will always have fond place in supporters who watched United during this period, a fondness which is clearly reciprocated:

“I love Manchester, Manchester people and some o’ them love me!”

Brian also had some kind words for FC United, thanking us for looking after his son, Liam, when he played Course You Can Malcolm last December and applauding the “by the fans for the fans” ethos of the club.

McClair said he was looking forward to the Gala Dinner immensely and “spending time with people who are passionate about football and the club they support”




David May echoed McClair’s sentiments saying “Manchester means everything to me”. May, who played for United between 1994 and 2003 was involved in six title winning sides, but ended up with only two league winners medal due to a lack of appearances. But as anyone fool knows, this is one more than Alan Shearer.

David is also can’t wait to “spend the night with United fans which are always a good craic”



With McClair’s dry, laid back humour and May’s legendary tales, they promise to be a great double-act on the evening.

Tickets for the evening can be bought via the FCUM Shop click here or by contacting Ruth Slater by email at ruth.slater@fc-utd.net or by telephone at 0161 769 2005
