Marginson Backs FC Fans to Roar Reds Towards Final


Wednesday’s Manchester Premier Cup quarter-final tie against old rivals Flixton promises to be a good old-fashioned cup tie with both sets of players looking forward to renewing acquaintances.

None more so than FC United Manager, Karl Marginson

"We will be taking this game very seriously. It’s a cup game after all, as Manchester United fans, we love a good cup run.

"I’ve no doubt that the FC fans will be right behind us and roar us on to what could be another cup final."

First played as the Manchester Challenge Cup in 1935, the Manchester Premier Cup’s inaugural winners were Manchester North End.

The competition has long featured the cream of non-league football teams. Indeed, over the years, crowds well into the thousands have watched finals played at Old Trafford, Maine Road and Burnden Park - to name a few.

Those who ’know their history’ will also be reassured by names such as Jack Crompton and Henry Cockburn, leaving no doubt that Margy’s boys are in good, Red Mancunian company.

So, with only two games away from another piece of FC history, all that remains is for you to get yourself to that football ground and sing the lads home.

FC United v Flixton, Wednesday 9th January 2008, kick off 7:45pm at Radcliffe Borough.

Adults £6 and everyone else £2
