Rebels hit rich vein of form

By NickJackson

FC United v Ossett Albon FC United go into Saturday's difficult clash against fellow Unibond League North high-flyers Osset Albion buoyed by their 3-2 win at Droylsden of the Conference in the Manchester Premier Cup on Tuesday.

The Rebel Reds were three goals to the good by the time Droylsden could muster a reply late in the game before a penalty conceded by FC, with nearly the last kick of the game made it a flattering scoreline for the hosts.

FC's goals came from Kayne Hanley, Aaron Burns and Rory Patterson and according to assistant manager Phil Power, new signings Jamie Baguley and Peter Thomson, must be wondering how they are going to get into the side.

Former Radcliffe Borough winner Baguley, aged 22, joined his brother Chris at FC this week along with muscular 29-year-old forward Thomson.

Power said: "They must have been quite worried about how they're going to get in, but that's a good thing for the club. It means they may be chomping at the bit on the bench and will perform when they come in."
