David Pegg

Date of birth20 September 1935
Place of birthDoncaster
NationalityEnglish
PositionOutside Left
Died06 February 1958

A classic left-wing man, the 'Babes' Ryan Giggs'. Elegant, elusive, lovely left foot, great crosses for Tommy Taylor's head. Munich victim. Perhaps his finest hour was 26 September 1956 in United's first ever European tie when Belgian champions RSC Anderlecht were swept aside in a 10-0 deluge on a rainy Manchester evening. Pegg was magical, laying on most of the goals for Taylor and Viollet.
