FC United to host Manchester historic football tours

Manchester is packed full of history and this season as part of the club’s welcome to Moston two FC United fans, Jon Kelly and Neil Boothman, (pictured above) are running matchday tours to visit local historic sites.

What makes the tours unique is that they have been written by FC fans for football fans and cover both football and local history. The locations include Newton Heath’s grounds at North Road and at Bank St in Clayton. FC fan Steph Crean, who went on one of the initial trial tours, said: “I found the tour fascinating and learned about stuff I never knew before. The guides were very knowledgeable and it was well worth the trip”.

The tours are by road from Broadhurst Park before home Saturday matches leaving at 11.30am hours sharp and will be back well in time for kick off. For more details see the FC United website.

The cost of the tour is £5 adults and £2 under 18s. Pre-booking is essential and to reserve a place please contact Neil Boothman at n.boothman@btinternet.comcall 07963 956731 or book at the membership stall on matchdays. All proceeds from the tours will go to the FC United Development Fund so please support the tour.
