With the announcement of Louis Saha’s involvement in the Manchester United Legends game against Moneyslane, it was always set to be an international affair but it’s a local man who will travel further than any other to be involved.

Dylan Cobb, now living in Australia, will be flying back across the world to pull on the goalkeeper’s jersey and play in the team with his Manchester United heros.

This is Stuart with his youngest son Kai to his left and brother in law Joel to his right, both Manchester United fanatics who will be joining Stuart and the players for the pre-match breakfast at the Anglers Rest.

Once he touches down in Northern Ireland, he will even be travelling on the Man United Team Coach from the Europa Hotel on match day. He’ll also be a part of the pre-match breakfast in the Anglers Rest, Katesbridge and will be arriving at Jubilee Park for the pre-match warm up with the United team, dressing room banter and, of course, the match.

Dylan will also be at the post match reception and will board the United team coach to the Europa Gala Ball.

Also in the Manchester United Legends squad on the day will be another local man, Stuart Griffin.

Stuart is a lifelong Manchester United fanatic and will be fulfilling a boyhood dream when he lines up alongside the Legends.

Stuart is named after Stuart Pearson, another United legend, and scorer of the winning goal in the 1977 FA Cup final against Liverpool, the year of Stuart’s birth.
