Rebels move nearer ground target

By Liam Chronnell

FC United of Manchester have moved a step closer to getting their own ground after the club reached a landmark target five months early.

The Unibond League Division One North outfit are aiming to raise £500,000 to build a new stadium in Greater Manchester. And more than 300 supporters have helped the Rebels hit the £30,000 target.

FC, whose game last night against Woodley at Gigg Lane was postponed, visit Nantwich Town in the Presidents Cup quarter-final on Friday night.
