Absolutely thrilled for @salfordcityfc and everyone involved!!! Hope to see some new fans down at Moor Lane very soon :-)

Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt are part of the Man Utd 'Class of 92', a reference to the club's FA Youth Cup win of that year.

David Beckham is the sixth member of the group, who all went on to have hugely successful careers in United's first team.
