"Following requests from both sets of fans I would like to thank Merseyside Police and Sefton Council for their consideration and approval to move the kick off time to 3pm and this will allow more traveling time in the morning, especially for the FC United of Manchester fans. I would however urge as many fans as possible from both clubs to buy tickets ahead of the game as this will help arrangements at the turnstiles. I look forward to an intriguing game between two Clubs who are hoping to do well in the season ahead and once again I look forward to welcoming both sets of fans in what should be an exciting and enjoyable day for all visiting the Arriva Stadium.
