We would like to thank Gareth Arnison, Luke Ashworth, Dale Tonge, Greg Wilkinson, Ryan Schofield, Jerome Wright, Sam Sheridan and George Thomson for the services to the club, and wish them well in the future.

Star Man George Thomson, who was voted Supporters Player of the Season and FCUth Player of the Season this year, joined FC United from Chester on loan in November 2015. The attacking midfielder completed a permanent move to Broadhurst Park in January 2016 having scored five goals in 8 games. He made 72 appearances for FC United, scoring 32 goals and was FC’s leading goal scorer in the last two seasons.

Luke Ashworth signed for FC United in August 2015 and formed a formidable partnership with Lewis Lacy in our North Premier League championship winning season. Ashworth played 139 times for the Reds over 3 seasons, scoring 14 goals, eight of which came in last season’s campaign.

Of his departure Luke tweeted:

Experienced defender Dale Tonge joined FC United in March 2016 and played 45 times for the Reds. Gareth Arnsion made 9 appearances and Greg Wilkinson played 6 times during the 2016/17 season.

Further player updates will be announced on a weekly basis.
