Fergie's first United team sheet for sale

The team sheet from Sir Alex Ferguson's first game in charge at Manchester United is to be sold at an auction.

The hand-written sheet for the 2-0 loss to Oxford on November 8, 1986 is set to be sold in Devizes, Wiltshire on June 22, and is expected to reach between £2,000 to £3,000.

The team sheet, featuring the likes of Paul McGrath and Frank Stapleton, and just one substitute, is being sold by Henry Aldridge & Son on behalf of an Oxford fan, who was given it by former Yellows player Peter Rhoades-Brown.

Auctioneer Andrew Aldridge said: "The team in November 1986 was a little different to the star-studded affair for Sir Alex's last game in charge that included global stars such as Robin Van Persie.

"The first match included names such as Chris Turner in goal, Paul McGrath at centre-back and Peter Davenport up front.

"The present owner is a life-long Oxford fan and it was given to him by Peter Rhoades-Brown, an Oxford player, as a souvenir.''

The United team against Oxford was:

1 ) Chris Turner, 2) Mike Duxbury, 3) Arthur Albiston, 4) Kevin Moran, 5) Paul McGrath, 6) Graeme Hogg, 7) Clayton Blackmore, 8) Remi Moses, 9) Frank Stapleton, 10) Peter Davenport, 11) Peter Barnes; Substitute: Jesper Olsen
