FORGET about Europe, FC United are hoping to go one better with a pre-season tour of the Far East.
They have been invited to South Korea next month but details of who they will be facing have yet to be finalised.
The club realises that some supporters will want to travel but officials are urging them not to make arrangements until exact fixture dates have been released.
And if any fans cannot afford the historic trip they may be lucky enough to go for free. For FC, in keeping with their ethos, have arranged a raffle for a free place.
The reds will be joined on their Far East adventure by 22-year-old striker Ben Deegon, who has been brought in from Ashton United in response to hot-shot Kyle Wilson’s move to Football League club Macclesfield Town.
But they will be without brothers Jamie and Chris Baguley, who have joined Leigh Genesis after being promised that they will play every week there, plus assistant manager Phil Power, who has left FC after his contract expired.
