With Sir Alex Ferguson blowing the final whistle on his illustrious career at Old Trafford, Southend United have a unique record which now cannot be broken.

The Essex league Two side are the only British team Manchester United faced during Sir Alex's time in charge and didn't beat!

Southend played United in 2006 in the Carling Cup Fourth Round at Roots Hall, winning 1-0 thanks to a Freddy Eastwood strike.
