Supporters Direct Tournament, Sat 24 July, at AFC Telford

In an earlier story we announced that FC United would be participating in the Supporters Direct Tournament on Saturday 24 August 2010 being held at AFC Telford.

Further details have now been confirmed and the games will be scheduled in this order to allow sufficient travelling time for the teams with the longest journeys:

1.30pm - AFC Telford United v FC United for the Supporters Direct Cup
4.30pm - Merthyr Town v Scarborough Athletic for the inaugural Supporters Direct Shield

Merthyr Town FC are the newest of the four fans-owned clubs participating in this tournament. In the 2009-10 season, the Martyrs to the Cause Supporters Trust took over and ran Merthyr Tydfil FC and then reverted to the club’s original name, Merthyr Town, when the new club was officially formed in June 2010 following the liquidation of Merthyr Tydfil FC.

Admission will be pay on the gate and will cover both games:
Adults - £8
Concessions and unaccompanied under 16s - £5
Under 16s with a paying adult - £1

FC United fans will be given the same area of the ground as when we last played at Telford. There will be full facilities on the concourse and all the day’s events will take place inside the ground, so there will be no need for exit and re-entry.

Full match details will be announced nearer the time.
