Cup Final Date Announced

Both Radcliffe Borough and FC United asked the league for a one off final to be played on Bank Holiday Monday, May 5. We believe that the Bank Holiday option would be more convenient for supporters, giving a better atmosphere for an end of season final and would relieve some of the pressure on players who, due to postponements, are expected to be playing up to three times a week. The League Management Committee also saw the benefits.

However, the LMC met on Sunday 16th March to consider the request made by both teams and after much discussion and deliberation came to the decision that the match had to follow precedents and be played within the scheduled league season which finishes on 26th April.

The only date available without causing further fixture congestion to both clubs by rescheduling league fixtures is Thursday 17th April. It is therefore the LMC’s decision that the President’s Cup Final will be played on Thursday 17th April 2008, kick off 7:45pm. The LMC has also decided that the game will be played at the neutral venue of Curzon Ashton’s Tameside Stadium.

A further announcement regarding admission prices will be made shortly.
