    I didn’t go to this game, but I do have a copy of the United programme for the 20th anniversary derby, that was due to be played on Saturday the 4th of February, 1978, but was postponed due to a frozen pitch, if memory serves.

    The referee for this game was Clive ‘The Book’ Thomas, who, as a family, we went out with the night before to the Piccadilly Hotel, and then on to Old Trafford, which is how I got the programme, and a signed menu from one of the suites at the ground that was holding a function there.
