Manchester United mark 60 years since Munich crash

Posted on by

first_imgThere were also ceremonies in Munich and Belgrade to mark the anniversary of the tragedy, which happened when the plane carrying Matt Busby’s youthful team back via Munich from Belgrade on February 6, 1958 crashed on its third take-off attempt.United’s players were celebrating reaching the European Cup semi-finals but the crash destroyed one of the finest teams in the club’s history, killing eight players and three members of the club’s staff. Twenty-three people died in total, including eight journalists, and there were 21 survivors.Charlton and Gregg, the only survivors from the group of players who lived through the crash, were both at the ceremony attended by more than 4,500 supporters held amid snow flurries in the northwest of England, along with former United manager Alex Ferguson.Current United boss Jose Mourinho and club captain Michael Carrick laid wreaths at the service, which was also attended by FIFA president Gianni Infantino and Liverpool great Kenny Dalglish.Former goalkeeper Gregg, who spent time at the United training ground earlier on Tuesday, sang along with the hymn “Abide With Me” as the ceremony came to a close.Gregg, who told the BBC Sport website that Tuesday’s service would be his final time at Old Trafford, said he did not believe the disaster had defined him or the club.“I do not think what happened in Munich made Manchester United. It is a very large part of Manchester United history but it’s not all Manchester United,” said Gregg, who helped pull survivors from the wreckage.“I have seen Manchester United through bad times and good times. I’m just very glad that Henry Gregg… was counted good enough to play for what I consider to be one of the greatest clubs in the world.”Around 2,000 fans gathered in Germany for a fan-organised ceremony attended by club ambassador Denis Irwin.It was attended by some surviving doctors and nurses involved in the treatment of manager Busby and his team, as well as Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness and chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.“Football is about rivalry and friendship and respect. Being here today is a sign of respect for this big club and its unbelievable fans,” said Hoeness at Munich’s Manchesterplatz, named as a tribute to the victims of the air crash in 2008.A memorial stone, laid in 2004, marks the site of the accident and the plaque bears the names of the victims.Nicky Butt’s under-19 team joined club officials as a minute’s silence was observed at Partizan Stadium in Belgrade — the venue for the European Cup quarter-final between Red Star and United in 1958. They are due to play FK Brodarac in the UEFA Youth League on Wednesday.– European glory –Manchester United went on to win the European Cup in 1968, with Charlton starring for Busby’s rebuilt team © AFP/File / Paul ELLISThe events of February 1958 are woven into the fabric of the club, who recovered to become the first English team to lift the European Cup 10 years later on a deeply emotional night at Wembley, with Charlton scoring twice.Ferguson, just 16 years old at the time of the Munich crash, told MUTV: “I’d gone to the library straight from school swatting for an exam and I was training with the local junior team.“When I got there, all the players were crying. I didn’t realise what had happened. When the news broke, it was really sad because I’d followed United at that time because of Matt Busby.”“The day that is absolutely shown in red on this week’s calendar is on Tuesday, a day that marks the 60th anniversary of the air disaster,” Spanish forward Juan Mata wrote in his blog on United’s website.“The victims will never be forgotten, they will always be remembered and will be a part of United’s history forever.”British Prime Minister Theresa May paid tribute to those killed and injured at Munich during a speech elsewhere in Manchester on Tuesday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Eight Manchester United players were among those killed in the 1958 Munich air crash disaster © AFP / Paul ELLISManchester, United Kingdom, Feb 6 – Manchester United on Tuesday marked 60 years since the Munich air crash ripped the heart out of the “Busby Babes” team with a service at Old Trafford attended by survivors Bobby Charlton and Harry Gregg.The stadium fell silent as the clock ticked to 1504 GMT, marking the time of the crash on an icy runway in Germany six decades ago.last_img read more

Hlumelelisa grows hope in prisoners

Posted on by

first_imgParticipants in the Hlumelelisa programme at Leeuwkop Correctional Facility. (Image: Hlumelelisa)Convicted offenders are getting a new lease on life while making a positive contribution to their community and helping to create a greener, safer and more beautiful South Africa.Hlumelelisa – an Nguni word meaning “a new spirit” or more literally, to heal from a broken bone – is an NGO founded by Paul Bruns, who is also its director. Bruns, a former marketing executive, set up the organisation in 2003 to rehabilitate convicted offenders by giving them horticulture skills.The non-profit organisation has been working at the Leeuwkop Correctional Facility in Johannesburg for the past 10 years, during which time it has trained over 200 prisoners. Five of its current facilitators are previous participants of the nine-month training programme.Prisoners who complete the course receive a recognised horticultural qualification, and one former offender has started his own nursery. Six others are employed by a landscaper.“We’ve all gone through those dark patches and I know for me when I went to nature I discovered myself and God, and I discovered there was purpose,” says Bruns. “I’ve always had this idea of lining the township with trees because trees have always been a passion of mine.”The idea for Hlumelelisa was sparked when he saw young men at Leeuwkop sweeping leaves. That’s when he realised this passion for trees was not all about nature, but was also about a love for people.The programme runs in five prisons, all of which have their own nursery and training facility. “I listen to [the participants] and I don’t become their friend, but their mentor,” Bruns says about his students.He is not being soft on criminals, he stresses, but he believes that everyone deserves a second chance. “We have had less people who have gone through our programme coming back to prison after they have left and that’s how we measure our success.”Bruns won the 2014 Inyathelo Philanthropy Award in Rehabilitation and Job Creation. The awards were handed out at a ceremony held in the Zip Zap Circus Dome in Cape Town on 6 November.HLUMELELISA AND LEEUWKOPHlumelelisa addresses the learning and economic needs of its students by providing them with the technical and practical skills to gain employment in horticulture or agriculture. There are also many possibilities to start a variety of small-scale businesses in the sector after they have been in the programme, such as growing seedlings or vegetables for local sale.Mafika Clement Vilakazi, a former inmate at Leeuwkop, says: “I was part of the Hlumelelisa class of 2009. I worked hard and loved working with flowers and nature. In 2010, Hlumelelisa recognised me and I then joined its training programme. I believe that this work and nature helped me get rid of the great anger I had in my heart since I was a child.“On my release from prison I was offered full-time employment with Hlumelelisa. I now wish to start a family and take care of my mother as she is old. With the help of Hlumelelisa, I have the vision to achieve my lost dream to be a businessman in the future. I am willing to give the best of my ability to this project, help others grow and find their dreams.”Hlumelelisa also runs a learnership project in Alexandra in Johannesburg.Bruns believes that by taking responsibility for living plants, the students learn about taking responsibility for themselves, their environment and their future. The vegetables they grow are used to feed the children at nearby crèches as well as the youngsters who attend the Thusong Community Youth Centre.last_img read more
