Manchester United's new left back has made history with the length of his name

The youngster has just broken into United's first team and has also broken into the record books

Manchester United's Cameron Borthwick-Jackson made his debut for the club over a month ago against West Bromwich Albion. He started United's most recent loss to Bournemouth and the youngsters star continues to rise as Manchester United's website revealed today that he holds the record for the longest name in the history of the football club. Is there anything this man can't do?

Borthwick-Jackson comes up against some stiff competition with the likes of Walter Winterbottom and Herbert Birchenough but prevails with two letters to spare over United's previous longest name title holder.

The website also points out that the young defender also shares the longest name in Premier League history with ex-Hull City striker Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink and former Cardiff City defender Kevin Theophile-Catherine.

So, while news coming out of Old Trafford has generally been bad for much of the season, United fans can rest assured that their 18-year old defender is a trailblazer in one way, at least.

Longest United names: 23 - Cameron Borthwick-Jackson; 21 - Bastian Schweinsteiger; 18 - Herbert Birchenough, Charlie McGillivray, Thomas O'Shaughnessy, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Juan Sebastian Veron, Walter Winterbottom, Billy Wrigglesworth; 17 - Russell Beardsmore, Danny Higginbotham, Andrei Kanchelskis, David McFetteridge, Raimond van der Gouw, Ruud van Nistelrooy.
