Leading Stoker John Anderson. Brettargh Street, Pendleton.
Anderson was a member of United's 1948 FA Cup winning side and an elder statesman of the club's former players' association.
His death means that Jack Crompton and Johnny Morris are the only survivors from the team which defeated Blackpool 4-2 in that memorable Wembley final.
Anderson, who was born in Salford, won schoolboy honours with both Salford and Lancashire before joining United in 1938.
He served in the Navy during the Second World War before returning to Old Trafford to pick up the threads of his career under new manager, Matt Busby.
He made his Football League Division One debut against Middlesbrough shortly before Christmas in 1947 and proceeded to make a total of 39 league and cup appearances for the club. His most notable outing came in the 1948 FA Cup final, when he scored one of United's goals in a match that is still widely accepted as one of the finest games ever to grace Wembley Stadium.
Anderson, a wing half-back (midfield player) was transferred to Nottingham Forest in October 1949 and later played for Peterborough United. On retiring from playing he was recruited to Posh's backroom staff as trainer/coach.
