Man utd v blackburn 1994 fa charity shield


The 1994 FA Charity Shield was the 72nd FA Charity Shield, an annual football match played between the winners of the previous season's Premier League and FA Cup competitions. The match was played on 14 August 1994 at Wembley Stadium and contested by Manchester United, who had won the league and cup Double in 1993–94, and Blackburn Rovers, who had finished as runners-up in the Premier League. Manchester United won the match 2–0 with goals from Eric Cantona and Paul Ince.

Notable omissions from the Blackburn side were top scorer Alan Shearer and his strike partner Chris Sutton, who had just joined them for a national record fee of £5 million. Young striker Peter Thorne made his solitary appearance for Blackburn as a substitute, while Manchester United defender David May made his club debut just weeks after joining them from Blackburn. Blackburn had two debutants in the game: experienced defender Tony Gale and young striker Peter Thorne.
