Marine Statement

With regard to the recent statement issued by Marine FC on its website and our fixture there on 22nd August, Marine has been in contact with the club since the fixtures were announced and the question of policing surrounding the game became an issue.

Everton play at home on the Saturday and Merseyside Police indicated that it was resource stretched. FC United, as always, made our preferred position clear with regard to 3pm on a Saturday. However, this is not our fixture and like other occasions in the past we have made representation but must allow the home club to proceed with its planning.

All clubs in our league are reluctant to move any fixture and always work with us to the best of their ability to maintain a 3pm on a Saturday stance. We would ask all supporters to understand the administrative difficulties we all face as clubs. Supporters should note that this fixture is not all ticket as it has been in previous years.
