Mixed weekend for rebels

FC United had a weekend of mixed fortunes in the UniBond Premier League.

The Rebel Reds claimed their first win of the season against Buxton on Saturday, with Jamie Baguley scoring the only goal of the game at Silverlands.

However, Karl Marginson’s men slumped to a 1-0 defeat against Boston United on Bank Holiday Monday. Carlos Roca impressed on the right-wing, and he fed Kyle Wilson for the best chance of the first-half but the Reds striker saw his shot tipped over.

United are back in action on Saturday when they host Whitby at Gigg Lane. They visit Bradford Park Avenue for a reunion with former hero Rory Patterson on Monday evening.
