Two From Two as FC Youth Warm Up For Final

When we packed up and left Gigg Lane for the summer some will have thought there was just a trip to Germany to think about, some will have set their minds to the 10km stagger round the streets of Manchester. Others still will have forgotten about football all together. However some at FC United have had a totally different thought in mind.

The Youth team still had plenty of football to play, they started with a minor hiccup against the eventual league champions Altrincham the following day, but then as the calendar rolled into May a transformation occurred. Two league games and two league wins later; including a win at second place Stalybridge Celtic the lads prepare for the season finale the Manchester FA Youth Under 18 Cup.

Our lads will have a test on their hands against a side in NJ Wythenshaw Juniors, that has scored freely on the way to the final, including a 17(yes seventeen) - 1 win in the first round and beat the team that knocked Salford City out of the competition. So if you aren’t in the first two categories above, get yourself down there, your support could make all the difference. Oh and even if you are in the second category and haven’t totally collapsed, you can go down there and get your breath back in time for a 3pm kick off.

"Ah, but where is ’THERE’ ", I here you cry.

For those who need a map.


If you didn’t do it last year, or even if you did, what better way could there be to sign off the season than to see FC United play for a trophy on a Manchester United pitch.
