Manchester United

1902–03 - the Division 2 side from Bank Street had a new name- Manchester United. The names  Manchester Celtic or Manchester Central were considered as alternatives to Newton Heath...
The  vertical striped jerseys are the away colours, blue and white. Interesting to see the fellow in the front row identified as A.N Other- an anonymous United player!
United finished the season 5th in the second division and were knocked ourt of the FA Cup in the 2nd round proper by Everton, having beaten Accrington Stanley, Oswaldtwistle Rovers, Southport Central, Burton United and Liverpool.
Jack Peddie, who joined from Newcastle United , was top scorer with 15 goals. Unsurprisingly the highest attendance of the season was for the Xmas Day clash with Manchester City (40,000).
