Not many Manchester United legends get the chance to be honored on the front of The Stretford End and when Paul Scholes announced his retirement from the game in 2011 many though it would be to late. Stretford End Flags paid tribute to Paul by creating the GENIUS mosaic for his testimonial last August. However a shock announcement in January 2012 saw Paul Scholes return to Manchester United.
As the season fast approaches, we have sought ideas for a new Stretford End banner and Manchester United fans have stated a preference for a banner paying tribute to our Ginger Genius. Fans have worked together to create 2 designs that we hope will be a fitting tribute. The two designs are both inspired by The Stone Roses, a group who also made a triumphant return in 2012.
The 2 designs can be seen below and you can vote for which banner you would like made, by registering on the SEF FORUM and voting on the free poll. The winning banner will then be made for The Stretford End and we hope to have this in place for the 2nd home game of the season against Wigan. Voting will close on Friday 17th August.
