Bobby Charlton

Post by Insertnamehere » Tue Aug 23, 2011 10:24 am

Searching online it said that Bobby Charlton made is man Utd debut against Charlton on October 6th 1956 but I have read somewhere he made his playing debut for Utd against Dundee? Could this be for the second string or in a friendly match?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Charlton was one of six reserves who played in a 5-1 defeat at Dens Park on Apr 9th 1956. Keeper Ray Wood had to retire injured after twenty minutes and full-back Kennedy went into goal with a rare substitution allowed when Ronnie Whelan came on. Charlton certainly had never played for the 1st XI in a competitive match though whether this was his first friendly appearance I can't say for certain.
