Burns night for FC United

By Liam Chronnell

New boy Aaron Burns hit a a double strike to cap a stunning debut for FC United in their 3-0 victory at Clitheroe.

Last season's Manchester United reserves top scorer struck in each half to help the Reds move up to fourth in the Unibond League Division One North table.

Rory Patterson was also on target from the penalty spot as Karl Marginson's side completed back-to-back wins for the first time since August.

Atherton LR's miserable form continued with a 3-0 home defeat to Glossop in the North West Counties Division One encounter.

LR have now leaked in a worrying 14 goals in their last three games. It was goalless at the break, but LR again failed to take their chances and their defence conceded three late goals.
