Pre-season event

April 09, 2009

BURY, Radcliffe Borough and FC United have agreed to compete in an inaugural round-robin pre-season tournament.

The matches will be held at Bury’s and FC United’s Gigg Lane home and at Radcliffe’s Stainton Park base in July and August with family themed fun days attached to every game. And £1 of every adult and concession ticket sold will be given to the clubs’ chosen charities.

David Murgatroyd, Radcliffe’s chief executive, said; "We thought it was an excellent concept and have been working on it for a while before we decided to approach Bury FC and FC United, who also liked the idea.

"It is a win-win situation for all of the clubs and a fantastic way of showing the caring side of each club and their supporters by linking in with their chosen charity."

The date of one of the tournament’s games has already been confirmed with FC playing Radcliffe at Stainton Park on Saturday, August 8.
