Bright futures


FC UNITED manager Karl Marginson is predicting big things for his wing wizards.

The reds’ flankers Adam Carden and Jerome Wright have been in sparkling form this season and Carden has already attracted the attention of Football League Two side AFC Bournemouth, who sought permission from FC to play him in a reserve friendly this week.

Unfortunately for Carden, the game was called off after he had made the five-hour journey, although Marginson insists that the Liverpudlian right winger will get another chance.

Margy said: "Adam has been excellent this season for us and it was no surprise to get the call from a Football League club wanting him to try out.

"I said yes as it’s a fantastic opportunity for a young lad to live the dream and make a living from football. He was unlucky it was called off and will never hear the end of it in the dressing room.

"Jerome Wright is another lad good enough to make it at Football League level and we’ve had a lot of interest in him. He can go past players at will and that’s rare at this level.

"Hopefully, both lads will stay with us as we progress but we won’t stand in their way if they get better chances."

FC came from 5-2 down to claim an astonishing 5-5 draw against Cammell Laird at Gigg Lane on Wednesday night, November 12.

They travel to Guiseley for a UniBond Premier League clash on Sunday, November 16, kick-off 3pm.
