Sir Alex Feguson, this morning, confirmed that in amongst the reserves and youth team players, his Manchester United line-up for the prestigious Carling Cup Final against Spurs, will contain a shock debut for 57 year old cleaner, Gladys Allsop.

The jocular Glaswegian joked that she would play sweeper and that she’d always impressed him with her dedication, speed of movement and tireless hoovering.

When questioned as to whether the Govan governor was taking this match entirely seriously in a season where the Manchester giants have already won the World Club Championship and look set to run away with the Premier League, Fergie replied “Och, a lot of people dinnae think I care aboot the Carling Cup but when you look at the teams that have won it recently you’ll see that we want to be considered amongst such esteemed company”.

Ferguson dismissed suggestions United were taking the game lightly by travelling down to London on the day of the game with the players getting changed in the coach, which is scheduled to arrive at Wembley minutes before kick off and insisted that, unlike some other countries, all cup competitions are taken seriously in Britain and that the Carling Cup was just as, if not more important than the Cheshire Cup or the Greater Manchester Challenge Trophy.

When asked about Manchester United’s team selection, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp commented “Look, they could field a team that had Fergie’s cat in goal, his 4 year old grandson upfront and his wife in midfield and they’d still batter us, now clear off while I try to explain to Darren Bent what those white metal structures with the nets attached at either end of the pitch are”.
