WEATHERFIELD may be in the shadow of Old Trafford, but Malcolm Glazer cannot expect a donation from the latest resident of Coronation Street to come in to help keep the bankers from the door.

Adam Baldwin has got a slice of his grandfather’s inheritance after all, apparently – I’m not usually a soap fan but it was on before the Liverpool game on Wednesday – but actor Sam Robertson’s allegiance lies with the breakaway set of supporters who opposed the American’s takeover.

Earlier this week Robertson made his debut for FC United, setting up the first goal in a 2-1 win at Abbey Hey in the North West Counties Division One match.

Meanwhile, fans hoping to see another Giggs make his debut for “United” – Manchester United star Ryan’s younger brother Rhodri – were disappointed as the man once imprisoned for his part in a nightclub brawl was being “rested” for the next game tomorrow.
