FC UNITED v CHESTER FC - Match Arrangements
On Saturday 5th January, FC United welcome Chester FC to Broadhurst Park, in the National League North kick off 3pm for our first home game of 2019.
It’s best if we draw a veil over the festive results, it certainly gave us no cheer whatsoever. We face a very difficult second half of the season.
Everyone needs to stay UNITED and give Neil and the lads 100% backing, starting today and for the rest of this season. We can still pull it round if we do.
