Reds face Newcastle Town in FA Trophy

FC United will play Newcastle Town at home in the first qualifying round of the FA Carlsberg Trophy on Saturday 16 October after the Staffordshire side beat fellow Evo-Stik Division One South outfit Goole 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Newcastle are currently in third place in the league below the Reds so they should prove a tough test. United have played and beaten The Castle twice before. During our second season there was a 5-1 demolition at Gigg Lane with a hat-trick from Stuart Rudd which followed a 3-2 thriller at the Lyme Valley Stadium.

Simon Carden scored a last minute winner as the Reds came from 2-1 behind to snatch victory with the club’s all-time top scorer, Rory Patterson playing in goal due to an injury to Sam Ashton.

Details about the match on Saturday 16 October will follow in due course.
