Manchester United was formed in 1878 as Newton Health LYR by the railway yard workers for Newton Heath. They were unaware of the future impact Manchester United would have on the game of football. From its foundation 100 years ago, the club is now one of the most famous football clubs in the world with supporters across the globe. In 1986 when Alex Ferguson took over the manager position from Ron Atkinson, the club were in the relegation area of Division one. Since taking over the manager position he has turned the clubs fortunes around and was the first manager in English football to achieve the hat trick. Since Alex Ferguson took over the club, its fortunes have been turned around. In 1990 Manchester United won the FA cup and have since gone from strength to strength. In the 1992/3 season Manchester United won the FA premier league, Sir Alex Ferguson was awarded the Manager of the Year trophy and the clubs success has continued.
