David May

Da­vid May, born Old­ham, Eng­land, June 24, 1970. Da­vid May star­ted out wi­th Black­burn Rov­ers where he broke in­to the fir­st te­am dur­ing the 1990–91 sea­son. A re­li­able de­fender, May made 123 Foot­ball Lea­gue ap­pear­ances for The Blue and Whi­tes be­fore Man­chester Uni­ted bought the sought af­ter play­er for a fee of £1.2 mil­lion in the sum­mer of 1994.

Des­pite of the fact that a string of in­jur­ies lim­ited his fir­st te­am op­por­tun­it­ies, he was im­mensely pop­u­lar wi­th the Old Traf­ford crowd. And al­though May went on to spend al­most a dec­ade at Man­chester Uni­ted, the in­jury prone per­former on­ly ma­naged to col­lect two Pre­mier Lea­gue Cham­pi­on­ship medals wi­th The Reds due to his lack of top flight ap­pear­ances. Hav­ing ap­peared in just 85 Pre­miership mat­ches for Man­chester Uni­ted dur­ing his nine-year-long stay at the club, the in­creas­ingly frus­trated stop­per agreed to join for­ces wi­th Cham­pi­on­ship si­de Burn­ley at the be­gin­ning 2003-2004 cam­paign. Then, af­ter spend­ing on­ly one sea­son wi­th The Clarets, May stayed wi­th North West Counties Lea­gue si­de Bacup Bor­ough for one year be­fore he quit the ga­me of foot­ball to pick up a ca­reer in the wine dis­tri­bu­tion in­dustry.
