Non League round-up

5:45pm Sunday 29th March 2009


A Carl Lomax double earned FC United of Manchester a terrific win at Marine in a crunch clash on Merseyside.

The Reds took the lead on 34 minutes with a Simon Carden strike – only for Marine to reply immediately with two goals in 60 seconds through Peter Cumiskey and Wayne McDermott.

United fought back and Lomax equalised a minute before the break and added a second on 62 minutes.

Saturday’s win was the latest plus in a fantastic run of form for FC, who have gathered 13 points out of 15 since early March, restoring their promotion hopes.

With five games left, FC face Ossett Town at Gigg Lane on Wednesday and North Ferriby, again at home, on Saturday when entry will be free for under-18s.
