FORGET about Europe, FC United are hoping to go one better with a pre-season tour to the Far East.

They've been invited to South Korea next month but details about who they will be facing have not been finalised.

The ultra-ambitious club realises that some supporters may want to travel but officials are urging them not to make arrangements until exact fixture dates are released.

And if you can't afford to travel the 5,500 miles, the club, in keeping with its ethos, have arranged a raffle for a dream place on the historic trip.

The Rebels will be joined on their Far East adventure by striker Ben Deegan, from Ashton United. He's been brought in to replace hotshot Kyle Wilson, now at Macclesfield.
