United have made a pledge on behalf of the club's fans to a leading Alzheimer's charity following the sale of a selection of limited edition football shirts.

Earlier this year, the Blades retailed a small number of the club's exclusive white third shirts, which sold out in a matter of hours, and it has been revealed that the club made a £1,000 donation to The Alzheimer's Society as a result of the move.

The Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading dementia support and research charity, and supports people affected by any form of dementia across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Dave McCarthy, operations director at United, said: "We felt it was only right to make a donation to this great cause on behalf of our fans following the huge success of the sales of the limited edition white shirts. The Alzheimer's Society does so much to help so many people across the country who are affected by such a terrible illness, and as a community-focused club it's important for us to give something back and do our bit."
