Munich Air Disaster Victim
Edward 'Eddie' Colman was one of eight Manchester United players killed in the Munich Air Disaster on February 8, 1958. At the time of his death, he had made 108 first team appearances. He was nicknamed 'Snakehips' for his trademark body swerve. A statue of Colman was erected at his graveside, in Weaste Cemetery, Salford, but it was damaged by vandals. After repairs, it was kept at the home of his father. Thousand of supporters lined the route to the cemetery where he was buried. Click HERE for a Blog post about the statue.
