FC UNITED have warned Colwyn Bay they intend to continue their remarkable rise through football’s lower echelons by beating their hosts in today’s play-off final at Llanelian Road.
Victory today would mark a fourth promotion in six seasons for the ambitious club, formed by disenchanted supporters of Manchester United.
The club continue to astonish their rivals with attendances which outstrip some of those at Football League games.
And despite Bay having beaten the Mancunians twice in league combat this season, FC United manager Karl Marginson is confident.
He said: “Colwyn beat us twice in the league but they were close games so we have nothing to fear – especially since we beat Rochdale in the FA Cup and then did so well against Brighton.
“Dave Challinor is their manager and he’s experienced and has a big team that concentrates on set pieces with good movement up top.
“My message to the lads who are sensible about these things is to enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend and then let’s give it our best on Monday afternoon.
“We are physically strong as you would expect at this stage of the season. We have the ability to beat them and continue our remarkable progress.”
