Stalybridge Celtic are proud to confirm that former player Bert Whalley will be honoured with the unveiling of a plaque at Bower Fold followed by a fixture between Celtic and Manchester United Under 23s in July.

The plaque which will be unveiled by the Professional Footballers’ Association honours Celtic’s former player and Manchester United’s former player/coach will be unveiled at Bower Fold at 6pm on Tuesday July 27 with the fixture between the two sides to follow at 7:45pm.

Bert Whalley was born on August 6 1912 in Ashton-under-Lyne and first joined Celtic in 1933.


The central defender moved on to Manchester United where he was recruited by Matt Busby and joined the clubs coaching staff, with a key focus on the development of youth players, known as the Busby Babes.

Bert tragically lost his life in the Munich disaster on February 6 1958.
