Index of the United Welshmen
The Manchester United Welsh travels back through the history of one of the best-known football clubs in the world, beginning at the dawn of the club as Newton Heath in the 1870s, tracking its progress over the next century or more as the club grew and flourished under managers such as Sir Matt Busby and Alex Ferguson, and bringing us right up date with recent signings.
But what is unique about this book is its unique view of the club from a Welsh perspective, tracing the considerable contribution to its enormous success made by a few key individuals with one important thing in common – their roots in this small but proud nation.
