Leamington away is still on Saturday 31st March ko 3pm

Last Sunday, we incorrectly announced via the club’s twitter account that the Leamington away match would be brought forward 24 hours to Good Friday - This was an error on our part, so we would like to confirm that the match will go ahead as planned on Saturday 31st March ko 3pm.

Leamington had contacted us two months ago to request that the match is brought forward to Good Friday. However due to the recent changes to the first team management team, a decision was delayed and discussed at the FC United board meeting on 27th November. At the meeting it was agreed that the decision to change the fixture should be a footballing one, due to two matches over the Easter weekend.

Following discussions with Manager Tom Greaves, it was agreed that we were happy to agree to the request to switch the dates, and the decision was passed to FC’s Communications Team to announce via the club’s communications channels.

Following the announcement on twitter on Sunday, Leamington FC contacted FC United to say that as they had not heard from us, they assumed we would reject the offer, so they went ahead to arrange match day sponsors for the Saturday fixture.

We would like to apologies to Leamington FC and our supporters for the miscommunication.

The details of the match is

Saturday 31st March ko 3pm
National League North
Leamington FC v FC United

The Phillips 66 Community Stadium
Harbury Lane
Bishops Tachbrook
