Class of '92 stars fall to Salford City

The former Manchester United players on the Class of '92 XI could not turn back the clock on Thursday.

Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and the Neville brothers rolled back the years on Thursday night as they lined up together in a "Class of 92" XI for a friendly against Salford City, the non-league outfit they bought between them this year.

It was an unfamiliar feeling in some ways for the quintet of former Manchester United players, though, as they ended up being beaten 5-1 in a contest that featured frequent pitch invasions.

The fivesome, who went on to enjoy trophy-laden careers with United...
