50 years behind the scenes at Old Trafford

Have you heard enough about millionaire footballers? Are you sick and tired of reading about wild, baseless rumours on which player is coming or going? Here’s a story about a man who has seen it all at Old Trafford, first hand, for the last 50 years. Ken Ramsden went from office junior to ticket office manager, programme editor, press officer, assistant secretary through the ranks to club secretary. But Ramsden’s Manchester United journey is over and the Ordsall born son of a Salford foundry worker and an Old Trafford laundry lady has retired. It’s a fascinating story brought to life by Manchester Evening News Stuart Mathieson and is being reproduced here totally unedited.
