FOOTBALL: Fans flock to Gigg but FC draw a blank

 Source: Bury Times

 FC United’s mixed start to their Evo-Stik Premier Division season continued on Tuesday night as the Rebel Reds slumped to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Kendal Town.

Mark Jackson opened the scoring for the home side but Matthew Wolfenden levelled just after half-time.

Goalkeeper Tom Newton then scored a bizarre second for the Cumbrians when his punt forward took off in the wind and sailed into the net before Ciaran Donnelly added a third.

On Saturday, FC drew 0-0 with Rushall Olympic in front of an impressive crowd of 2,445 fans at Gigg Lane.

They are back in action on Saturday with a trip to Chorley before hosting Nantwich next Wednesday.
