Margy's reaction to FA Cup draw

FC United of Manchester have been drawn away against Trafford or Atherton Laburnum Rovers in the Preliminary Round of the FA Cup with the match scheduled to take place on Saturday 1st September 2007.

If the Reds win they will progress to the First Qualifying Round where they will face Fleetwood Town away on Saturday 15th September 2007.

Manager Karl Marginson was pleased to be guaranteed to begin the club’s inaugural FA Cup campaign against a familiar team after competing against and beating both Trafford and Atherton LR last season en route to the North West Counties Division One title.

He said: "We know all about Trafford and LR so we’ll go into that one with plenty of confidence. With the up most respect we should be able to win that, but if we do it’ll be a tough one against Fleetwood as they’re in the division above and they were pushing for promotion last season."

Margy is fully aware that a trip to Fleetwood and the Fylde coast would go down very well with the club’s army of travelling supporters who enjoyed a similar seaside excursion to Blackpool in the first season. He added: "Hopefully we’ll be able to do the business against Trafford or Atherton and everybody will be able to have a good knees up in Fleetwood."
