20 August - 2 Days To Go!

In our 5th Fascinating FACT counting down to FC United’s first home game in the Northern Premier League we switch our attentions to another competition that we are debuting in: the FA Cup...

FACT 6: Of course, this is also FC United’s first ever season of competing in the FA Cup. Last season five teams competing in what was then the Unibond First Division (the equivalent of the division in which United now find ourselves) made it as far as the 3rd qualifying round of the world’s oldest cup competition.

The last time a Northern Premier League First Divison club reached the first round proper was in 2000-01 when Radcliffe Borough lost 4-1 at home to York City. Last season, however, a fellow step four club did reach the first round proper: Leatherhead of the Isthmian League Division 1 South losing 2-1 away to Torquay United.
