Match Report
Two first half goals from FC United’s player of the 2006/07 season, Rory Patterson were enough to get the Reds’ pre-season campaign off to a winning 2-1 start against Studley FC and secure the Jimmy Davis Memorial Cup.

The match was played in a competitive but friendly manner as the main purpose of the day was to raise money for the memorial fund which helps young, up and coming footballers.

United had virtually two different teams in the first and second halves as manager Karl Marginson seems keen to give run outs to as many different players as possible before the start of the season.

Former Salford City midfielder Dale Whitehead and ex-Flixton striker and Bolton Wanderers trainee Anthony Hargreaves were both given debuts and a number of the club’s youngsters were given the chance to show what they can do in the first team. Young forwards Lee Ellis and Gary Edwards both had opportunities to seal the game in the second half before Studley threatened to get back into things late on by converting a penalty.

But it was too little, too late from the hosts as United saw out the match at 2-1 to lift the cup, rounding off a good work out for the players old and new and another good day out for United’s army of travelling supporters who enjoyed some rare July sunshine.
