Manchester United are wearing black armbands against West Brom in honour of former player Albert Quixall, who passed away last week.

The Yorkshireman would also play a key role in the club's FA Cup triumph of 1963, grabbing goals against Huddersfield, Aston Villa, Chelsea and Coventry on the way to Wembley, where Leicester City were defeated 3-1.



Quixall left the following summer, having played 184 games and scoring 56 goals at United, for Oldham Athletic.



United are back in action on Saturday night following the international break with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side hoping to pick up their first Premier League win of the season at Old Trafford.

With no club football being played over the last two weeks due to the international fixtures, the game is United's first chance to pay their respects to Quixall, who died on November 12 at the age of 87.

Although United were still reeling from the Munich Air Disaster in Quixall's first season, his contributions helped the club finish second in the table, losing out on the title to Wolves.

Although things got off to a shaky start as United didn't win in the inside forward's first seven appearances, Quixall's talent soon started to shine through and he became an integral part of a lethal front-line along side Bobby Charlton, Dennis Viollet, Warren Bradley and Albert Scanlon.
