YOUNGSTERS from across the borough are being invited to watch a football match for free on Saturday.

At 3pm at Gigg Lane, fans-owned club FC United of Manchester will play Matlock Town in the Unibond Premier League, and under-18s can watch it free.

The club has played home games in Bury since forming in 2005, but recently announced plans to move to Newton Heath in two or three years.

A crowd of more than 2,500 is expected and will include pupils from dozens of local schools. There will be a number of extra activities on offer to children before the match kicks off.

Entry costs £7.50 for adults and £5 for over-65s.
