Manchester United Juniors[MUJAC][1944. An Original Private Photo]

What Irony! Far right in the light coloured raincoat stands club secretary Walter Crickmer, next to him in the dark overcoat is a young goalie called Les Olive. It was Les Olive who became Walter's assistant until Walter was killed at the Munich Air Disaster on February 6th 1958, whereby Les Olive took over with immediate effect and continued in his role until he retired in 1988 and then becaame a club Director, and in 2005 when the Glazers purchased the club he left the club. Walter Crickmer was club secretary from 1926 to 1958 and on two occassions managed the club in the 1930's for brief periods.
