ManCity in October 1974. United won 1-0 before a crowd of in excess of

His debut in the FA Cup was even more dramatic, as this was made at
Wembley in the 1977 final! Albiston was selected in place of the unlucky;
Stewart Houston who damaged ankle ligaments a fortnight before Wembley.

Still only 19 years old and with little senior experience, Albiston nevertheless
had a fine match,playing a full part in United`s 2-1 victory over League
Champions Liverpool.

He established a regular place in the team in the following campaign and
remained a steady, loyal and often unsung component for the next 10 seasons,
although a cartilage operation put him out of action for 4 months in 79-80.

He appeared in 4 FA Cup Finals, collecting a record three winners medals,
and was a Football League Cup finalist in 1983.

On the International front,he represented Scotland Schoolboys,
five appearances for Scotland Under 21`s,and won 14 full caps.

In June 1983 after almost 500 appearances for United, he rejoined his old boss,
Ron Atkinson, at West Bromich Albion. In season 1992-3,at the age of 36 years,
Arthur Albiston was still in League football with Chester City.
