Today marks the 51st anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster and it is a time for reflection on those who died playing for our club. Captain Roger Byrne, Geoff Bent, ‘snakehips’ Eddie Colman, Tommy Taylor, David Pegg, Mark Jones, Liam ‘Billy’ Whelan and Duncan Edwards all perished due to the horrific crash on February 6th 1958. Today at around 15:03 we will all remember those people that died that day – the day after the Busby Babes played their last game together. Rest in peace lads.
