FC United continued their winning start to the new season by thrashing North Ferriby United 6-3 last night, writes Ben Collins.
The Rebels won 2-0 at Stafford in Saturday’s Evo-Stik Premier opener and followed that up thanks to a storming second-half fightback.
Despite having to play at Stalybridge rather than FC’s normal Gigg Lane base, 1,532 made the trip to Bower Fold and saw the visitors take the lead.
Matty Wolfenden equalised and, although Carlos Roca’s cross forced an own goal, the Villagers made it 2-2 before regaining the lead after half-time.
But from 3-2 down, FC battled back to win it through Steve Torpey, Ben Deegan, a Roca penalty and another own goal.
“Our fitness levels won it,” said assistant boss Roy Soule. “We slammed them out of sight second half.
“We put pressure on them and kept our shape, we’ve made an excellent start.
“We just have to carry it on now back at Gigg Lane on Saturday against Chasetown.”
