Black on mission to sink United

By Rob Batiste

MANCHESTER UNITED’S second side are in the sights of Ryan-Zico Black, the Guernsey semi-pro.

Tonight at Gigg Lane, the home of Bury, Black expects to line up in the Bamber Bridge side aiming to deny FC United in the semi-finals of the Unibond First Division North promotion play-offs.

A crowd of up to 5,000 is expected, the vast majority the followers of FC United, the breakaway side born out of the disgruntlement of the Glazers’ takeover of Man. United.

Black, now 26, moved to Bamber Bridge from Lancaster City a few weeks ago and is confident his new club can spring a surprise today.
