Manchester United treat for ship’s crew

Ten members of the RMS St Helena crew will be in the crowd when football legends Manchester United play against Ajax Cape Town on Saturday.

They’ll be taking a break from the rigours of a major refit of the St Helena supply ship in dry dock in South Africa.

There has been some down-time for the crew, reports Captain Andrew Greentree. “Saturday evening saw a disco in the sun lounge amongst all the stored furniture.

“A bingo evening was held on Wednesday night with the contractors joining in. A draw was made at the end of the evening for the tickets to see the Man U game, as there were 10 tickets and 16 crew wanting to go.”

A night of karting was also planned, and Sunday night’s entertainment might offer some small consolation to crew who missed out on the big game. “We are hoping to arrange an indoor five-a-side football tournament,” says Captain Greentree.
