January 14th 2023 – MMMF Chairman Pat Burns visited the Manchester United Academy

On Derby Day, it was a real pleasure to be invited to the MUFC Academy to speak to the under 13s. They are coming en masse to Munich and I was fortunate to be asked to select the wreath bearer and the boy who will read out his poem to close the ceremony next month. Truly wonderful to see the academy coaches, under our Manchester Munich Memorial Foundation Patron, Nick Cox, instil this level of knowledge, spirit and understanding of what Munich and The Babes mean to our club and fans.

Roy Cavanagh MBE came with me and it was an honour to listen to him talk – we’ve done many podcasts on the Babes together and I learn something new every time. The boys were magnificent, so respectful and well mannered and they are an absolute credit to our club.

One Love
