Manchester United goalscoring legends Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole are coming to Doncaster next month.

The Old Trafford favourites will be making an appearance at Skellow Social Club on February 6.

Yorke began his career at Aston Villa where he established himself as one of the Premier League’s top strikers.

He caught the attention of Manchester United and in his first season at Old Trafford, Yorke was a key player in guiding the club to a unique treble of the Premiership title, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League, and forming a legendary partnership with Cole.

Altogether he scored 64 goals for Manchester United in 188 appearances.

he later played for Blackburn, Birmingham and Sunderland and was capped 72 times for the Trinidad and Tobago national team, scoring 26 goals.

He has been a staple of tabloid newspapers for his brief relationship with Page Three model Jordan - aka Katie Price - and has a son with her named Harvey who is blind and has autism.

Meanwhile, Andy Cole, who now prefers to be known as Andrew Cole, has also earned a place in the Manchester United hall of fame.

Cole started his career as a youth player for Arsenal and was sold to Bristol City for £500,000 deal where he proved himself as acompetent young goalscorer.

He caught the eye of Newcastle United, who signed him for £1.75 million in 1993, scoring 12 goals in as many league games as the Magpies cruised to the Division One title and won promotion to the Premier League.

Cole then scored 34 goals in 40 games during Newcastle’s first Premier League season. In all, Cole hit 68 goals in 84 games for Newcastle but in January 1995, Cole was suddenly sold in a shock deal to Manchester United for a deal worth £7 million.

Despite joining halfway through the 1994–95 season, Cole still managed to score 12 goals in just 18 Premier League games for United.

In total, Cole scored 93 goals in 195 games between 1995 and 2001 before joining Blackburn Rovers.

Tickets for the event are priced at £30 and the event will also include a comedian, compere, auction and raffle.

They are on sale on 01302 339529 or 07720 636937 or 07912 983671.
