    We are delighted to announce that Peter Wood of Edinburgh has won our Auction for the football shirt worn by Wayne Rooney and the signed Manchester United football. Interest in the Auction was high and Peter’s winning bids for the two items were £160 and £60 respectively. Even better from our point of view was that on learning of his win, Peter very generously upped his bids to total £250.

    Thank you all for your interest in this and thanks especially to Mark Wylie at Old Trafford and the generosity of Manchester United FC for very kindly donating the shirt, ball and letter of authenticity.
