De­nis Law and the milky way

FourFourTwo - - CONTENTS -

Bill Shankly prob­a­bly didn’t know the ef­fect he was go­ing to have on De­nis Law when he put Hud­der­s­field Town’s teenage tal­ent on a ‘steak and milk’ diet, hop­ing to beef up the Scot af­ter giv­ing him his first-team de­but aged just 16. So be­gan a life­time’s love of the white stuff, in which Law – and Al­bert Quix­all (left) – was drenched by the Manch­ester United squad ahead of the 1963 FA Cup Fi­nal. It worked: De­nis scored in a 3-1 vic­tory over Leicester. Bot­toms up!
