Reds drawn away in FA competitions

FC United have been drawn away from home in the first qualifying rounds of the FA Cup sponsored by E.ON and the FA Carlsberg Trophy.

In the FA Cup we will face one of Sheffield, Flixton or Winsford United and the tie is scheduled to be played on Saturday 12 September. In the Trophy we will make the trip up to Hurst Cross to take on Ashton United on Saturday 17 October.

The Reds are familiar with all of our possible opponents having played them all at least once. Flixton, who were old adversaries in our North West Counties days, have to play Winsford, who led the league for many weeks in our inaugural season, in the extra preliminary round on 15 August.

The winner of that match will then play the oldest club in the world, Sheffield on 29 August - a team who FC United lost 1-0 to in a pre-season friendly in June 2006 at the Don Valley Stadium.

Further announcements about the games will be made nearer to the time.
