''Wilf'' Mcguinness

Wilfred “Wilf” McGuinness is one of only two men to both play for and Manage Manchester United and is best known for taking over from Sir Matt Busby.

He was still a United player at the time of the Munich air disaster in 1958, but an injury had prevented him from playing, so he was not on the plane with the rest of the Busby Babes when it crashed.

He is much loved by the Old Trafford Faithful and is fondly known for his trademark bald head.

For this commission I wanted to light-heartedly portray ‘‘Wilf’‘ and his best known feature.
