Build up to Boston - one week to go

The countdown is on!

For those supporters who would like to help publicise the game we have produced A5 flyers and A4 posters which can be downloaded and printed from HERE.

This last week has seen friendlies at Hyde United and Maine Road. The game at Hyde was partly played in what seemed like a monsoon... not bad for 1st August! Nevertheless, the players stuck it out and rode out 3-1 winners against the Conference North outfit and the FC faithful were in fine voice as usual.

Maine Road was the opposite in many ways, played on a warm, and more importantly dry, summer night, in quite basic surroundings. The result went against us this time with a controversial penalty midway through the second half but the match served as another run out for the squad.

With only a week to go there’s just enough time for a trip to the North Wales coast for Colwyn Bay (Saturday 8th August) and finally another pre-season visit to Trafford (Tuesday 11th August).

Then the serious business of the league starts. The first fixture of the season is a home game, so let’s cover those blue seats at Bury with the red and white of United and get behind the team.

FC United will welcome Boston United back to Gigg Lane on Saturday 15th August. Their two visits to Gigg Lane last season both ended in victory for the Pilgrims, although the Reds managed to pull one back with a 1-0 win at their place in January.

The Gigg Lane turnstiles will be open from 2pm, with the FC United bars The Main Stand Inn and Course You Can Malcolm open earlier.

Let’s start season number 5 as we finished season 4 - we didn’t manage that play-off place in the end, but the bumper crowds in the last three games did us proud. Margy and co are determined to aim for the top spot this year after last season’s disappointment, so make sure you come along for the ride.
