FC UNITED kicked off their new UniBond Premier League campaign with a double-whammy of single goal defeats.

They went down 3-2 at Bradford Park Avenue on Monday night and lost their home league opener with Boston United 2-1 two days earlier.

Both games saw FC come close to recording draws following spirited comebacks.

Simon Carden scored a brace of second half goals against Bradford while Adam Tonge bagged what turned out to be an 80th minute consolation goal against Boston.

FC have another two league games this coming week. They visit Retford United on Saturday, August 22, kick-off 3pm, and host Marine at Gigg Lane on Wednesday, August 22, kick-off 7.45pm.
