Denis Law Family
Law was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, to George Law, a fisherman, and his wife, Robina. he was the youngest of seven children, four boys and three girls. The Law family were not well off and lived in a council tenement flat at Printfield Terrace in Aberdeen.
He went barefoot until he was 12 years old and wore handed-down shoes throughout his adolescence; his first pair of football boots came as a second-hand birthday present from a neighbour, which he received as a teenager.He supported Aberdeen and watched them when he had enough money to do so, watching local non-league teams when he did not.
His obsession with football led to him turning down a place at Aberdeen Grammar School, because he would have had to play rugby there. Instead, he attended Powis Academy in Aberdeen.

Denis Law Professional Career
In the 1954–55 season, he was spotted by Archie Beattie, a scout for Huddersfield Town, who invited 14-year-old Law to go for a trial. When he got there, the manager said, “The boy’s a freak. Never did I see a less likely football prospect – weak, puny and bespectacled.” However, to Law’s surprise, they signed him on 3 April 1955. While he was at Huddersfield, he had an operation to correct his squint, which greatly enhanced his self-confidence.
Huddersfield’s relegation to what was then the Second Division made it easier for Law to get a game, and he made his debut on 24 December 1956, aged only sixteen, in a 2–1 win over Notts County. Manchester United’s manager Matt Busby shortly offered Huddersfield £10,000 for Law, a substantial amount of money for a teenage footballer at that time, but the club turned the offer down. Bill Shankly was manager of Huddersfield between 1957 and 1959, and when he left for Liverpool he wanted to take Law with him, but Liverpool were unable to afford him at that time.
In March 1960, Law signed for Manchester City for what was then a British record transfer fee, estimated to be £55,000,although Law’s share of the fee was “precisely nothing”.Once again, Matt Busby had attempted to sign Law for Manchester United, but United’s cross-city rivals beat them to Law’s signature.
Law recommended that United replace O’Farrell with Tommy Docherty, whom he knew from his time playing with the Scottish national side.The club followed his recommendation, and things started well, with the team’s improved results lifting them into mid-table.
Law was given a free transfer by Tommy Docherty in the summer of 1973,after 11 years at the club during which he had scored a total of 237 goals in 404 games in all competitions, as well as collecting two league title medals and an FA Cup winner’s medal. Only Bobby Charlton and Wayne Rooney have scored more goals for United.
Law had a contract with Manchester City for the 1974–75 season, but new manager Tony Book told him that he would only be playing reserve team football if he stayed at the club. He did not want to end his career in this way, so he retired from professional football in the summer of 1974.
Law played two games for Manchester City in the season 1974–75, in the pre-season Texaco Cup tournament, scoring the last goal of his career in the game against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on 6 August 1974. His last professional game was the 2–1 victory against Oldham Athletic at Maine Road on 10 August 1974.He formally retired on 26 August 1974.
