Rebels fix up friendly


FC UNITED will play UniBond Division One side Clitheroe away in a friendly on April 15, which had been a clear weekend in their league schedule.

A spokesman for the Rebels said: "With a free week manager Karl Marginson was eager to keep the players fully match-fit for the last few games of the season."

The Manchester Road End at Gigg Lane, where the majority of the FC United support gather for home games, will be closed for Saturday's clash with Cheadle Town, as hosts Bury carry out "essential maintenance work".
