Beckham, Butt, Giggs, Gary, Phil… And Kevin Pilkington.
Funny, isn’t it? Despite being a pivotal member of Manchester United’s coveted Class of ’92, a number of fans away from Old Trafford might struggle to recall the goalkeeper of that FA Youth Cup winning side.

In this podcast, he tells stories of his time at Old Trafford, from being offered a contract by Sir Alex Ferguson to playing behind the likes of Bruce, Pallister and, er, William Prunier.
