Manchester United deafeat Leeds United

Matt was representing Manchester United and Tim represented Leeds United one of the games most legendary rivalaries. The game kicked off at 12pm on Police advise to prevent any potential crowd trouble.

Italian style defending gave Hancock the edge.

An outstanding defensive  display reminiscent of the great Italian defender Paolo Maldini gave Hancock the edge. He exposed Cosgrove’s weaknesses in defence and was ruthless in taking his chances in attack. The battle in midfield was epic with no quarter given or taken it was like going back in time to the feisty battles between Roy Keane and David Batty a  feist for the connoisseur of full blooded competitive football.

Tim Cosgrove commented;

“The games between myself and Hancock are allways ultra competitive and although i’m bitterley disappointed to loose I must give credit to Matt who played the better football on the day and was the deserved champion”.
