3:56pm Tuesday 28th April 2009

FC United of Manchester will groundshare with Bury FC for a further two years.

The club have signed a two year extension to the Ground Licence Agreement which keeps them at Gigg Lane.

A spokesman for the club said: "FC have played home games at Gigg Lane for the last four successful seasons and whilst we would like to have somewhere closer to the city centre we are grateful to Bury FC for the use of the excellent facilities at Gigg Lane."

FC United are in discussions with Manchester City Council about a ground of their own.

The spokesman added: "The extension to the agreement with Bury will hopefully see the club through to the fulfilment of our plans."
