The name of Alex Dawson might not instantly mean much to many but he played a crucial role in keeping Manchester United alive after the Munich air disaster ripped the club apart. Dawson narrowly missed out on boarding the ill-fated flight back from Germany. With Sir Matt Busby fighting for his life in hospital, his trusty No.2 Jimmy Murphy pulled a team together to face Sheffield Wednesday in the fifth round of the FA Cup – just 13 days after the accident. Dawson took his place beside survivors Bill Foulkes and Harry Gregg as United won 3-0. Dawson had an incredible record at Old Trafford, scoring 54 goals in 93 games. He is still the youngest player to score a hat-trick for the club, hitting a treble aged 18 years and 33 days in the semi-final replay against Fulham in March 1958. He also played in the famous 1958 Final.
Here is a 30×12 storyboard photo commemorating United’s historic Cup run in the aftermath of the Munich disaster. The item was signed by Alex Dawson at a signing session carried out and attended by Allstarsignings in Birmingham, 20th November 2011.
The item comes with an Allstarsignings certificate of authenticity which will have photographic proof inserted into it and our tamper-proof hologram
