Did you know: Sir Alex Ferguson made appearance for United as player
Better late than never
A season after his appointment at United, Sir Alex Ferguson, 46 at the time, had a surprising cameo for the team.
That happened during the season when United played two friendly matches in Bermuda against the Bermuda national team and the Somerset Cricket Club.
In the match against the latter, both Ferguson himself and his assistant, Archie Knox, took to the field, with Knox even getting on the scoresheet. And so, this ended up being Sir Alex's only appearance for the club.
