Sir Bobby Charlton signed for Manchester United in 1953 at the young age of 15. The Ashington born midfielder became one of the framed Busby Babes amongst a collection of talented footballers who emerged through the youth system under the legendary guidance of Jimmy Murphy.

Throughout Charlton’s United career, honours such as 3 First Division titles, 1 European Cup, 1 FA Cup and a World Cup with England were achieved. In 1966, two years before claiming the European Cup, Charlton was awarded the prestigious Ballon d’Or.

To this day Charlton holds the record for the most goals scored in a Manchester United shirt. From 758 appearances, he scored 249 goals. That’s 13 more than the king, Denis Law, United’s first Ballon d’Or winner in 1964.
