Football round-up and FC United tickets to be won

Edited from: Manchester Confidential
In the Unibond Premier League there was happier news for FC United, who clung on to a half time 3-0 lead at Hucknall Town to run out eventual 3-2 winners – though only after goalkeeper Sam Ashton had saved a penalty.for the Rebels, and the team had endured a nail-biting final few minutes after Tyreisse Nightingale (Is this crazy name week? Ed) grabbed a second for the hosts. Former Old Trafford striker Phil Marsh had earlier bagged a first half brace for FC.

The win pulls the Rebels up to sixteenth place in the Unibond Premier with two or three games in hand over their rivals following the team’s unprecedented FA Cup run. A few wins under their belt might make a promotion challenge look feasible.

FC’s next Unibond Premier League home game is against Kendal Town on November 28, and we have two tickets to offer Confidential readers, plus the chance to meet manager Karl Marginson and his men - courtesy of those nice chaps who run the club.

For the chance to win them, all you have to do is fill in the form below. Closing date is noon next Monday, 23 November. (click the link to the original article (top of page) to access the form - ed).
