Droylsden Shock News !!
The authorities have relented and the match against Droylsden is no longer all ticket.
It is regrettable that none of those responsible for designating the game as all ticket spoke to FC United prior to taking their original decision and that our attempts to get the decision reversed have been ignored until now.
We would like to apologise to supporters for the inconvenience this change of arrangements may have caused and assure all FC fans that we will continue in our endeavour to have the interests of supporters put first.
