Tony Young Profile

Tony Young

Ter­ence An­thony Young, born Urmston, Eng­land, Dec­ember 24, 1952. Born and bro­ught up in the near­by to­wn of Urmston, To­ny Young star­ted out as an ap­pren­tice at loc­al club Man­chester Uni­ted in Au­gust 1968, at the age of 15. Whi­le at Old Traf­ford, the ded­ic­ated de­fender made a total of 97 fir­st te­am ap­pear­ances for The Man­chester Reds be­tween 1970 and 1975, hit­ting one goal in the process.

When To­ny Young was called up to Man­chester Uni­ted at the be­gin­ning of the 1968-69 sea­son, Matt Busby´s te­am were the hold­ers of the coveted Euro­pean Cup af­ter hav­ing de­feated Por­tuguese te­am Ben­fica by 4-1 in the fi­nal at Wemb­ley Sta­dium on the 29th of May 1968. A ver­sat­ile full back, he went on to make his Fir­st Di­vi­sion de­but for Man­chester Uni­ted when he entered the field as a sub­sti­tute for Re­pub­lic of Ire­land in­ter­na­tion­al To­ny Dun­ne in a heavy 4-0 de­feat to Ips­wich To­wn at Port­man Road on the 19th of Septem­ber 1970. As things ev­entually turned out, he would find his fir­st te­am op­por­tun­it­ies ex­ceed­ingly lim­ited due to the ex­cel­lent form of fel­low full backs Al­ex For­syth and Stew­art Hou­s­ton, and he played his swan song ga­me for the club when he came on as a re­place­ment for North­ern Ire­land mid­fielder Tom­my Jack­son in a 1-0 Di­vi­sion One loss ag­ainst Queens Park Ran­gers at Loftus Road on the 13th of Septem­ber 1975. As a Man­chester Uni­ted play­er, Young ac­cu­mu­lated 83 Foot­ball Lea­gue ap­pear­ances for The Reds be­fore he mo­ved on to Sec­ond Di­vi­sion new boys Charl­ton Ath­let­ic on a free trans­fer mid­way thro­ugh the 1975-76 sea­son. Whi­le at The Val­ley, he on­ly ma­naged to rack up 20 Sec­ond Di­vi­sion out­ings for the So­uth East Lon­don out­fit be­fore man­ager Andy Nel­son deemed him sur­plus to re­quire­ments, and he was sub­sequently trans­ferred to new­ly re­leg­ated Third Di­vi­sion club York City in the sum­mer of 1976. Af­ter ap­pear­ing in 70 Lea­gue mat­ches for the Bootham Cres­cent te­am be­tween 1976 and 1978, he tried out his luck wi­th Non Lea­gue Cheshire si­de Run­corn where he would fin­ish his play­ing days. In total, To­ny Young ap­peared in 181 Foot­ball Lea­gue mat­ches and sco­red four goals dur­ing his play­ing ca­reer. Ac­cord­ing to Ro­bert Baden Pow­ell, foot­ball is a grand ga­me for de­vel­op­ing a lad phys­ic­ally and also mor­ally, for he learns to play wi­th good tem­per and un­selfish­ness, to play in his place, and to play the ga­me, and these are the best of train­ing for any ga­me of life. How very true, in­deed. To­ny Young Play­ing Ca­reer: Man­chester Uni­ted, Charl­ton Ath­let­ic, York City, Run­corn. Man­aging Ca­reer: None.
