A look ahead to the weekend's sport

1:49pm Monday 16th February 2009

SATURDAY see’s the hugely anticipated visit of FC United to Kendal Town’s Parkside Road Ground. The Bury based outfit was formed by disgruntled Manchester United fans in the wake of Malcolm Glazer’s takeover of the club, and is famed for its strong support and passionate fans.

Kendal will be expecting record gates for tomorrow’s Unibond League fixture. Town will be hopeful that they can emulate the form they showed back in October when they ran out 3-1 winners against Karl Marginson’s men at Gigg Lane. Kick off is at 3pm.

Across Town, Kendal Rugby Club face another difficult test tomorrow as they welcome third in the table Fylde to the Mint Bridge.

Kendal put in a gutsy performance against second in the National League three North Nuneation last Saturday, going down 21-13 in Warwickshire. Despite the seven places between the sides Kendal will be looking to their impressive home form as they attempt to take down high-flying opposition. Kick off tomorrow is at 2pm.
