Man Utd 0 York City 3 - Re-live the night

Following the success of the Phil Howden / York TV "Happy Wanderers" DVD earlier in 2005, a product that raised approximately 1,600 for York City Football Club, he launched another trip down memory lane.

As you all know, 2005 was the 10th anniversary of that famous night in Manchester when the brave battling boys of York City turned over Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford, one of the great achievements in our illustrious history.

To celebrate the anniversary, Phil got hold of a good quality copy of the 1995 video of the full match, which you may remember was sold in the Club Shop at the time. After some negotiations with Manchester United and Paul Doherty International (who filmed and produced the original), Phil obtained the rights in order to re-edit the footage and re-release for sale to raise money for York City FC. A big thanks to both parties in Manchester for their kindness.

Never again do we have to listen to the condescending tones of the MUTV commentator and Phil even correctly identified Paul Baker as being sent off.

Now you may ask yourself, "I have the video, why bother with the DVD?" Well, I hope the DVD version will attract you as City supporters as, although the footage has been taken from a video, it is pretty good quality. In addition, Phil has added replays and graphics which where strangely omitted from the original. All in all, it is a much more pleasurable watch than the original. With DVD technology you can easily skip onto your favourite bits of that night. As usual, Phil's faithful sidekick, Andrew Leathley, designed another excellent cover for it!

The DVD went on sale on the night of the anniversary itself (September 20th, York City v Dagenham & Redbridge). The price was 12 and the DVD was 1 hour and 50 minutes long. Details of how to get hold of a copy of "Manchester United v York City - 10th Anniversary Re-Edit" could previously be found at the DVD's now sadly deleted very own web page (thanks to Andrew Clayton!).

FERGIE AUCTION PLUS ANDY MC. September 22 and an "Evening with Andy McMillan" in the York City FC Social Club (2 days after the 10th anniversary of the Manure 0 City 3 match). The evening saw the conclusion of an auction for a copy of the match DVD signed by Sir Alex Ferguson. History doesn't record which DVD wnet for eth most, the one signed by Sir Alex or the one signed by Alan Little.

Finally, and most importantly as it was the main reason for the existence of these productions. All profits from the DVD's sale went to the York City Youth Development Fund, the Centre of Excellence and other City causes - all very worthy causes in the difficult financial circumstances experienced by our club.

Payment can be done by cash in person or cheque made payable to "York Minstermen" and sent to Phil Howden, 1 Marmian Drive, Stockton-On-The-Forest, York, YO32 9UX.
