United players Nemanja Matic and Phil Jones delighted families with a pre-Christmas visit to Francis House.

Children and young people receiving respite care at the hospice in Didsbury, as well as other invited hospice families and staff, enjoyed spending time with the players and posing for treasured photos.

The visit, organised annually by Manchester United Foundation, saw the players bring some festive cheer as they handed out United-themed presents and personally signed home shirts.

Defender Phil Jones who had previously visited the hospice back in 2017, met young United fan Zach and his family and chatted about football.

The visit created a real buzz of excitement and gave the children, young people and their families an experience they will never forget.
