RedNews/606 Substitute
Annual Dinner


Fri 10 May 2019
Best Western Cresta Court Hotel
Church Street, Altrincham, Cheshire


Alex Stepney is a decorated former goalkeeper who played with top flight teams and saw plenty of success, and is now a popular after dinner speaker who recites plenty of amusing and informative tales from his time in the game.

The goalkeeper for the team when they became the first English team ever to win the European Cup, Stepney was one of the most revered players of his time. Initially joining Tooting & Mitcham United, Stepney was spotted by Millwall who signed him as an amateur in 1963, only to develop into a professional within two months, an acknowledgment to his noticeable potential.

The evening will consist of a Reception, super 3 Course Meal with choice of menu, Guest Speaker(s), Auction of Super items of Memorabilia, and Raffle. ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO SUPPORT REDNEWS AND STRETFORD HIGH SCHOOL.

DRESS CODE:  Smart Casual.

This event will be limited to 250 persons.

This Dinner celebrates our 16th Anniversary. Because of this, and other circumstances involved, attendance is fully expected to be over subscribed. Already, demand is high simply because we do not advertise this event to the general public, especially in the UK as priority is given to the 606 Sub Group, Red News Members, Supporters Trust, Red Republik, Danish Supporters Group, South African Supporters Group, and of course Stretford High School.

Places that are available will go on sale soon and the price per ticket will be announced.






Founded in 1987, as relevant as ever in 2011/12, our very own 25th anniversary season, REDNEWS is a Manchester United fanzine - available as a printed magazine on sale at Old Trafford on matchdays, a new digital download version for your tablet/pc/phone and via the post directly to your door together with its online presence here offering the most extensive United news and views service on the net, together with its forums where Reds can debate, share info, gossip and banter away.

The fanzine and site is run by Reds for Reds, 100% independent and unofficial (and for adults only), but offering Manchester United fans wherever they may be a voice. The fanzine offers an irreverent look from the perspective of match going United supporters, there to have a laugh, poke fun at our rivals, yet offer constructive criticism if necessary about the club - but sharing a love for all things MUFC. There is opinion on current events, and trips down memory lane with great stories and pictures. Retro looks and current thought on the game today, and yesterday. We don't have or want the backing of large organisations - we are proud that a fanzine remains different and unique in the world because it offers an honest plain talking view about how football fans really see the game to fellow fans seeking honesty and a shared love for all things MUFC. Sharing a culture, blessed as MUFC fans.

It's a labour of love - we don't have fancy premises or a HQ, just a group of United fans giving their time and (at times!) endless effort to provide what we feel is a unique look and forum in the wider sense for United fans to use. We are a small operation, but have a loud voice. We work from our homes, in our work, because it is a labour of love. Welcome! We are proud and honoured to offer Reds a choice, and that voice, and we thank all of you who support us.

Stretford High SchoolStretford High School is an 11-16 non-selective secondary school in the borough of Trafford, Manchester. The school has working partnerships with both Manchester United and Lancashire County Cricket Club.

The school in its current form dates from 1990. Previously the site was host to Stretford Grammar School for Boys, in 1986 it merged with Stretford Grammar School for Girls to become Stretford Grammar School, moving onto the girls' school site and vacating the Great Stone Road site.

On Friday 8 July 2011 Stretford High School pupils in conjunction with Sir Bobby Charlton and Dickie Bird MBE unveiled blue plaques dedicated to Tommy Taylor and Duncan Edwards, two of the Busby Babes who lived in the locality and died in the Munich air disaster in 1958.
