Busby Babe Kenny Morgans passes away

Former Busby Babe Kenny Morgans has past away at the age of 73.

Morgan played for Manchester United as a winger in the late 1950's, making his debut at the age of 18 against Leicester City on 21 December 1957. Less than two months later, he travelled to Belgrade for the ill-fated European Cup trip and sustained injuries when the team's plane crashed in Munich after refuelling on the return flight.

Although he recovered from his crash injuries and was able to continue his playing career, Kenny spent the large part of his time as a footballer back in his native Wales, leaving Old Trafford for Swansea in 1961 and later joining Newport County before retiring in 1967.
