Halifax Town nostalgia: When The Shaymen scored home and away against Alex Ferguson's Manchester United in 1990

As part of our nostalgia series, we look back on when Halifax played Alex Ferguson's Manchester United in the League Cup second round in 1990.

After losing the first-leg at The Shay 3-1, Halifax's exit was confirmed after a 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford in the second-leg. Thanks to Johnny Meynell for his help with this article.
