FC kick-off with trip north

Source: M.E.N.

FC United will kick-off life in the UniBond League with a trip north to play Lancaster City on the opening day of the season, August 18.

The Rebels, after two successive promotions, take on Yorkshire side Garforth Town in their first home fixture at the higher level, at Gigg Lane on Wednesday August 22.

The re-structured first division means that FC will play eight clubs in the 18-team competition three times.

It means Clitheroe, Skelmersdale, Bamber Bridge and Radcliffe Borough will cash in with two home games against the Rebels.
