Remember, Remember... Saturday 30th July for Rochdale friendly

Remember, Remember... Saturday 30th July for Rochdale friendlyRemember, Remember when we knocked out Rochdale from the FA Cup on Bonfire Night in 2010?

Well now the 10th-placed League One side will be our guests at Broadhurst Park for a pre-season friendly taking place on July 30th, with a 3pm kick-off.


FC United Manager Karl Marginson will see this as a stern pre-season test for his squad, albeit with fewer fireworks in the air and not quite as much national media interest.

At Spotland in November 2010, FC United won the FA Cup Round One Proper tie against Rochdale with a last-gasp winner by Mike Norton. It looked as though we were heading for a replay or even a heartbreak defeat after Rochdale had equalised, following goals by Jake Cottrell and Nicky Platt.

But Norton pounced with the winner to send Margy’s red and white army into ecstatic celebrations that lasted well into the night.



We look forward to welcoming Rochdale to Broadhurst Park on July 30th.
