Sad to here about the passing of David Meek (Utd reporter for over 40 years) SAF's tribute is so fitting. 🙁🙁.

I am lucky to have met David Meek several times, he was an avid Hockey player when younger and played at a club where I played cricket. I first chatted to him in the clubs dressing room around 1980 about Andy Ritchie, I think Ritchie had scored a hat trick but the MEN was supporting the manager who was looking for a new forward, I think Birtles. Back then the MEN was far more toe the line to the club than it is now, so I spoke to Meeky for a while as I wanted Ritchie to get a chance. Lovely calm man who was ingrained in the football club and saw him around a few times. Bumped into him at OT, in the South Stand, he was going down to the pitch and we had a good chat, again lovely chap, well liked. May he RIP.
