United capped another successful year on Monday night by topping five categories at the North West Football Awards, including Club of the Year.
Sir Bobby Charlton and Sir Alex Ferguson received individual awards at The Midland Hotel in Manchester - the former was honoured for his Lifetime Contributions to football in the region, while the latter was voted Manager of the Year by the North West public after guiding United to title glory.
"I thought I was presenting the award to someone else, that was the idea when I came," Sir Bobby told MUTV.
"I've enjoyed my football life here, it's been great. The North West is a hotbed of football. This award means a lot."
Speaking before the event, Sir Alex told MUTV: "It's a special night, the first of its kind. There's plenty to celebrate, as over the years, North West clubs have been very successful."
The awards honoured excellence on and off the field. United's staff scooped the Best Club Sponsorship prize - in recognition of the partnership with AIG - and Best Commercial Team.
