Biography: Frank O'Farrell paid £200,000, a record fee for a third division player, in September 1972, in a bid to turn around his side's flagging fortunes. But he had only been at Old Trafford for five months when he was transfer listed by Tommy Docherty after he failed to settle in the North. Ironically, five years after he left the club, United were paid to pay Bournemouth an extra £22,000 as part of a goal- related clause in his complicated transfer. Became the owner of sports shops in Bournemouth and a licensee of a public house near Romsey, Hampshire. Emigrated to Vancouver, Canada, with his French Canadian wife, where he has become a wealthy property developer. Returned to England for a spell as Portsmouth's reserve team coach, then moved to the USA where he worked with San Jose Earthquakes and the United States Air Force Academy. Now lives in Atlanta, USA, and was Director of Youth with the Atlanta Silverbacks before setting up his own club, Atlanta Spurs, with former Notts County pro, Paul Smith.

Macdougall, Ted A friend worked with Ted on the Widnes newspaper, where he had a picture of Manchester Utd on his locker. When he signed professional for Liverpool FC he ripped the picture down, but alas never made it at LFC. YNWA
