Match Report
FC UNITED of MANCHESTER ACADEMY ’A’ TEAM 4 HOPWOOD HALL (ROCHDALE FC CAMPUS) MEN’s 1sts 3

FC United of Manchester Academy ’A’ team came out on top of this ECFA North West Men’s Category 2B League fixture with a narrow 4-3 home win against Hopwood Hall (Rochdale FC Campus) Men’s 1sts on the Broadhurst Park 3G on Wednesday morning.


CAMERON BOLAND opened the scoring for the Young Reds with a far post header on 12 minutes after Lewis Unwin had sent over a teasing right wing cross.

It was goal scorer turned provider on 33 minutes, when Cameron Boland intercepted a wayward pass, and his low shot was guided into the net by LEWIS UNWIN.

On 40 minutes, Harry Kershaw was tripped inside the penalty area, and CAMERON BOLAND made no mistake with the resultant spot-kick to put the home side 3-0 up.

On 45+2 minutes, Hopwood Hall pulled one back when DECLAN JONES headed home unchallenged from a corner.

3-1 at half-time, the visitors started to claw their way back into the game in the second half and it was little surprise when ERNEST MALAJ fired home their second on 74 minutes.

LEWIS WILLIAMS restored the home side’s two goal advantage on 81 minutes when he single-handedly beat the away team’s offside trap, but LEWIS FIELD then scored a third for Hopwood Hall on 88 minutes to ensure a nervy final few minutes as FC United just about held on for a 4-3 win.

Hopwood Hall’s Joe Burgoyne saw red in the closing stages as the referee blew for full time.
