Its another record for the Manchester United skipper, as this game, against Liverpool was his 564th League appearance, a club record overtaking the number of matches played by Bill Foulkes. Former centre half Foulkes, now the reserve team coach, said " Its a pleasure to see my record go to a player like Bobby Charlton. Hes been a great player, and still is. I am sure he is going to play a lot more games for the club". Charlton played his first League game for Manchester United on 6th October 1956, against Charlton Athletic. He scored twice in this, his debut match, in a 4 - 2 win. Since then he has played 16 seasons of First Division Football.

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photo print, we witness a historic moment at Old Trafford as Bobby Charlton's name illuminates the new electronic scoreboard. This achievement marks yet another record for the legendary Manchester United skipper, who surpasses Bill Foulkes' number of League appearances with his remarkable 564th game against Liverpool. Foulkes himself, now serving as the reserve team coach, graciously acknowledges Charlton's feat and praises him as a phenomenal player both past and present. Charlton's illustrious career began on October 6th, 1956, when he made his first League appearance against Charlton Athletic. In that memorable debut match, he showcased his immense talent by scoring two goals in a resounding 4-2 victory. Since then, he has graced the First Division Football stage for an impressive sixteen seasons. The photograph captures not only the pride etched across Charlton's face but also the electric atmosphere within Old Trafford. The cheering crowd symbolizes unwavering support for their beloved club and its iconic captain. However, despite their enthusiasm on this particular day in April 1972, Manchester United suffered a defeat with a scoreline of 0-3 against Liverpool. This image from Memory Lane Prints transports us back to an era where records were broken and legends were born. It serves as a timeless reminder of Bobby Charlton's greatness and his enduring impact on English football history.
