FC's Tommy eyes a debut


FC UNITED new-boy Tommy Turner could be set for a debut as the reds take on Hednesford Town on Saturday, November 29.

Turner is the top scorer in the North West Counties League and joins from Bacup to bolster United’s forward line as they take on the UniBond Premier League’s current top side.

Manager Karl Marginson said: "Tommy is a hard worker and a good finisher.

"He played against us for Salford City a couple of seasons back and scored both times.

"We were pretty impressed with him, but he seemed to drift away from football for a while, though he has come back and made a real impact at Bacup this season."

FC go into the match on the back of a disappointing exit from the FA Trophy at the hands of Boston United last night (Wednesday).

The reds were beaten 3-1 after squandering several early chances and putting on another defensive horror show.

Boston went one up after the half hour, then doubled their lead on the stroke of half time.

The deficit was three on the hour and Papis Dieyte’s first goal for the club was a mere consolation.

Admission to Saturday’s game at Gigg Lane is £7.50 adults, £5 over-60s and £2 under-18s on the turnstiles.
