REBEL club FC United will hand over a £3,000 donation to the George Best Foundation prior to being crowned North West Counties League champions on Saturday.

Best's sister Barbara McNally will be at Gigg Lane to receive the cheque ahead of the club's final home game of the season against Formby.

After a brief mid-season wobble, FC United eventually secured promotion to UniBond League Division One with something to spare.

Once again, the club, formed by fans opposed to Malcolm Glazer's takeover of Manchester United, recorded staggering attendance figures.

Average gates hovered around the 3,000 mark, which will make them favourites to achieve a third successive promotion next season that will leave them just three divisions below the Football League.
