Man Utd...3,623 games of academy players.


Recommended Posts

Came across this article today, I was quite astonished to find that United have had at least one of their academy players in their first team squad since 1937...

[size=4]"It is the mystical production line that has given football Duncan Edwards, George Best, Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and many others.

But the impact of Manchester United’s youth system on the club’s success is much more pronounced than most football fans ever realised.

For there has been a graduate from United’s youth set-up in their first-team squad for every single match since October 30, 1937 - a scarcely believable run of 3,623 consecutive games."[/size]
