Biography: A member of the same United youth team as the likes of David Beckham, Robbie Savage, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville, he scored his first United goal against Bury in the FA Cup, but he was never able to displace Andrei Kanchelskis on the right wing. He was valued at £1 million in the £7 million deal which took Andrew Cole from Newcastle to Old Trafford in January 1995. He returned to Northern Ireland for the 2009-2010 season where he played for Glentoran. But is now without a club.

Gillespie, Keith When you say 'same United youth team' I assume you mean Manchester United (rather than NEWCASTLE United or SHEFFIELD United). There is more than one 'United' you know!
