Eric was a hugely influential person in the careers of the Class of 92, and the thoughts of everyone at the club are with his family and friends at this difficult time.

Salford’s co-owners have led the tributes to their former coach, posting on social media “We’ve lost our mentor, our coach and the man who made us. He taught us how to play, how to never give up, how important it was to win your individual battles and what we needed to do to play for Manchester United Football Club. Eric we owe you everything.”

Sporting Director Chris Casper added: “Eric Harrison wasn’t just a great coach in the development of many players, he was also a great man who guided young people and helped shape the lives of many more, thanks for everything Eric.”

There will be a minute’s applause before kick-off at Saturday’s game against Dover Athletic at The Peninsula Stadium.
