The last youth player signed by Sir Matt Busby at Old Trafford, the last of the 'Busby Babes' won 88 caps and scored five goals for Northern Ireland while playing for his country in all of their matches at the 1982 and 1986 World Cups.

After over a decade in midfield for United, McLLroy went on to turn out for Stoke City, Manchester City, Örgryte in Sweden, Bury and Admira Wacker in Austria before returning to England to play for Preston North End and briefly for Northwich Vics before hanging up his boots in 1993.

Contact Dave Law at Trafford's Shawe View for more information and tickets for the event which are priced at £30 per head.
