Post-match entertainment after FC United match
AFC Wimbledon will be hosting a night of free entertainment after Saturday's first pre-season home match against FC United of Manchester.
To mark the visit of another fans club, there will be an evening of comedy and music provided by the London branch of the FC United of Manchester Supporters Club.
The Man of the Match presentation will start proceedings at 5.30 pm and one of the highlights will be the appearance of hard-hitting comedian and songwriter Attila the Stockbroker. Also featuring on the bill will be a documentary charting the formation of FC United, a production that creator Dan Colbourne wants to gauge the reaction of Wimbledon fans about.
Local band The Greenbacks and DJs will also feature on the bill, which all supporters are welcome to stay on for and enjoy after the match.
The previous encounter between AFC Wimbledon and FC United proved to be a memorable occasion in July 2009 when a crowd of 1,722 turned out to watch the Supporters Direct Cup and a 2-0 win for the Dons with goals from Peter Rapson and Ben Judge (the picture above shows Luke Moore in action during that game).
FC United, a club currently playing in the Northern Premier League, were formed in 2005 by Manchester United fans disgruntled with Malcolm Glazer’s takeover at Old Trafford.
As part of arrangements for this match between two fans-owned clubs, FC United have invited AFC Wimbledon to be their first opponents at their proposed new ground in Moston, Manchester, a venue the club hopes to be playing at before the start of 2014/15.
