Thousands of football fans showed their appreciation of the Armed Forces last weekend by cheering soldiers from 33 Engineer Regiment (EOD) at the final home match for Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League.
Four soldiers who have recently returned from
Afghanistan were invited to watch the match on Saturday 16 May 2009 at Manchester United's Old Trafford ground. At the end of the match the soldiers walked the League Trophy and medals onto the pitch where they were applauded by the crowd.
Nice one, Man U!
