Moses is a Red

FC United is pleased to announce the signing of Tunji Moses, the son of former Old Trafford midfielder Remi Moses, after he parted with old club Salford City.

Moses is an all-action midfielder in the same mould as his famous father and manager Karl Marginson is expecting big things from him next season.

Unfortunately, fans may have to wait until December to see their new man in action after he serves a suspension and recovers from an ankle injury.

But Margy is excited about his newest requisition and feels that Moses joining is testament to his plans for an incredible fourth promotion push this season. He said: "I first came across Tunji when I was still playing for Radcliffe and he was at Oldham Town.

"I was impressed with his obvious tackling strength, which he gets from his dad, but also by his ability on the ball. He will add that bit of muscle to our midfield, which I felt we lacked on occasions last season.

"We’ve got some good ball players, but we sometimes lost the ball too much in midfield and struggled to get it back. Tunji will help with that.

Margy used to watch Moses senior from the Stretford End at Manchester United in the 1980s.

He added: "Remi was a great player and I loved watching him. I went to the same primary school in Ancoats and he was a local hero. I knew his cousins when we were growing up so I’ve known the family a long time.

"I really hope Remi comes along to a game because it’s great to keep the links with United’s past alive at FC."
