FC United of Manchester is a community football club owned and democratically run by its
members. Its corporate structure is a Community Benefit Society and membership is open to all, with everyone an equal co-owner, holding one voting share in the club.
A strong squad made up of players who finished last season in the reserve side and triallists went to the Lancaster Club to take on an experienced Avro team. A 4-1 win was a fair reflection of play and the hopes of players looking for further progress.
