Ressies Close To Victory

Saturday is going to be one of the most of important Saturday’s for FC United this season. When I say this, I’m not just talking about the play-off final with Skelmersdale but I’m saying it for the future of FC United, the Ressies. They have a crucial game against Broadheath at their home ground Abbey Hey (K.O. 3pm).

This Saturday’s game will be the penultimate decider on whether FC United Reserves can once again walk away as crowned champions or not. With only one point separating them from a much deserved victory, everything is at stake. Either a win or a draw would seal promotion to the Cheshire Football League Division One. This is a big step for the lads and also a big step for the future of FC United.

Manager Loz Greenhalgh is more than happy with their achievement and is confident they will win it at Abbey Hey:

"This season has been a great achievement by the team and hopefully we can win the league this weekend against Broadheath. The lads fully deserve to win the league and we would have won the cup if we didn’t get thrown out. It has been great to see some of the lads making the first team and hopefully some will be breaking through next season as well."

With only one game left to play after this Saturday, the Ressies will be travelling down to Tarporley Victoria, at the Tattenhall Recreational Club, on Saturday 10th May, K.O. 3pm. So get yourself to that football ground and cheer on the (could be) champions and maybe watch them lift the cup.

More from Loz with his thanks to everyone who has helped his team gain such great success throughout the season:

"I’d like to thank Gary Vaughan as he has bought something different to the changing room and I think the lads have been really impressed with what he has done.

Once again I’d like to thank all the players who have been involved this season, you have shown what great players you are and you will go on to do great things in the future.

Also I’d like to thank Pete the secretary and John the kit man. And on a final note let’s make sure we win the league this weekend."

So good luck to the Ressies! We may need to make room for yet another trophy!
