Marine at Bower Fold, this evening

FC United are back at Bower Fold, the home of Stalybridge Celtic, tonight against Marine.

Supporters please note that segregation will be in place at tonight’s match after a request from Marine. Therefore supporters are unable to change ends at half time. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

How to get there by public transport

For supporters without a car, getting to and from Bower Fold is straightforward by public transport.

The railway station is well served by trains from both Victoria and Piccadilly. Buses connect with the trains at the station and there’s a bus stop right outside the ground.

Of course, if you’re feeling energetic (or want to stop off at a couple of pubs on the way) it’s a walk of just over a mile to/from the station.

The return train journey is £2.80 or a combined bus and train day saver is £5.50.

Plenty of us managed it on that cold, dark night in November 2009 for the FA Cup replay against Stalybridge Celtic after all…

What’s on?

Most of what happens at a home game at Gigg Lane will also be happening on Wednesday:

The membership stall will be located inside the ground, where our trusty volunteers will be on hand to help you with FC related queries. You can still become a Member for this season, or even renew your Membership if you’ve not got around to it. There will also be CDs for sale and End of Season Presentation Night tickets along with copies of the pink and the usual variety of leaflets.

The Past Programme Stall will be located alongside the Membership Stall selling old programmes as well as tonight’s programme. Tom will also be taking coach bookings for Matlock on Saturday.

The Pound for the Ground raffle will take place at half time where you can win £200.

The social club will be open both before the match and at half time (located inside the ground)

The Megastall will be pitched up temporarily inside the ground and will have the usual merchandise available, including new stock of the 2010-12 home shirt.

The Development Fund barrels will be located around the ground for your loose change. Supporters have raised over £7000 so far this season through the DF barrels and every penny in the barrels is one (tiny) step closer to a Home of our Own.

It’s a home game, so don’t forget your season ticket!

Turnstiles will be open from 6.15pm, so get there in good time.
