Andy Burnham praises FC United

The Government’s Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Andy Burnham has become the latest person to heap praise on FC United as our club continues to make progress off the pitch.

Mr Burnham, who attended the recent victory over Prescot Cables at Gigg Lane and met with several Board members, said: "I enjoyed the match and congratulate FC United on their victory. Both myself and my parliamentary colleague David Chaytor (MP for Bury North) were impressed with the standard of football on the pitch and the passion of the fans off it.

"FC United has shown how fans can defy the odds and set up and run a genuine, democratic, community based club. As a co-founder of Supporters Direct these are values that I back. I know FC United will continue to show football how supporter owned clubs can be a force for good in the modern game."
