Another big day for Town
LITTLE Cheadle Town are hoping to be record breakers this Saturday when they play FC United in a Moore & Co Solicitors League fixture.
The game has been switched to Stockport County’s Edgeley Park stadium to help accommodate the legions of Reds fans who will be travelling to Cheshire from all over the country.
Cheadle expect Saturday’s attendance to top 4,000, a figure which would create a new league record and almost certainly be the highest non-league attendance of the day in this country.
The atmosphere generated by the FC United fans is unique and has helped their support to grow.
Their biggest home game at Gigg Lane so far this season was the 3,808 which saw them play Daisy Hill.
However, with the game against Cheadle being a local ‘derby’, it is expected that Cheadle themselves will have a very large following.
Admission is £7 (adults) and £4 (concessions), with the ‘away’ support set to be housed in the Robinson Brewery stand and the ‘home’ fans in the Printerland stand. Kick off is at 3pm.
Cheadle recently hosted FC United in a league cup tie of course - a match which was played at Curzon Ashton’s Tameside Stadium. United won that match 5-1.
