FC up to fifth

February 26, 2009

MINT finishes from Jerome Wright and Simon Carden helped FC United climb back into the play-off places with a 2-1 win at Kendal Town on Saturday.

Wright, who has been watched by Crewe and had a trial with York City recently, scored the first goal after just 12 minutes.

The home side had a mountain to climb 16 minutes later when Carden, despite appearing to be off-side by a farmer’s field-like distance, was allowed to slot in number two for the reds.

It was anything but a piece of cake for United though as the Cumbrians pulled a goal back from the penalty spot. But the reds held out to move up to fifth spot in the UniBond League Premier Division table.

FC host Buxton at Gigg Lane in their next game this Saturday, February 28, kick-off 3pm
