FOOTBALL may stop over the summer at most clubs, but not at FC United of Manchester.

The North West Counties Division Two champions have just come back from their debut European' game in Germany and already have one eye on next season.

The Red Rebels drew 4-4 against fellow fans club, Leipzig, earlier this month in a match that was a welcome respite from the rigours of a long, but equally successful season.

"The trip to Germany was good for team spirit and helped the lads to bond, away from the pressures of the league," said United assistant manager Phil Power.
