FC United 5 Trafford

Source: Manchester Evening News

FC UNITED won themselves a trip to the seaside as they kept on the Wembley trail.

The Rebels beat Trafford 5-2 in a game that was switched to Altrincham's Moss Lane ground to accommodate the 2,250 following.

Simon Carden was switched from midfield to attack and was twice on target along with Josh Howard, a Nicky Pratt penalty, and a final goal from substitute Andy Hargreaves.

Trafford, who are one division below FC United had pulled back to equalise before Pratt's spot-kick just before the interval.

The players, bolstered by getting their hands on the FA Cup at training on Thursday, will now take on Fleetwood Town in the first qualifying round on September 15... and it's only another ten victories to get to Wembley!
