Pre-season fixture is announced
We are pleased to announce that FC United of Manchester will visit the Cherry Red Records Stadium for a pre-season friendly on Saturday, 13 July.
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 Danny Kedwell 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 next month’s match between the 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.
