Two new players join FC United

FC United of Manchester are pleased to announce the signings of 22-year-old midfielder Jamie Baguley and 29-year-old forward Peter Thomson.

Baguley, who’s brother Chris also plays for the club, joins from Salford City. Manager Karl Marginson has known Jamie for a number of years since he was at Radcliffe Borough and is thrilled to have him on board. Margy said: “He has a wonder of a left foot, is an intelligent player and works hard for the team.”

Baguley, who FC United fans may remember scored a stunning freekick equaliser for Salford against the Reds last season during our 2-1 defeat at the Willows, said: “I’m very pleased to be joining FC United,” before cheekily adding: "I’m much better than my brother.”

Thomson who joins form Barrow, has played at conference level and as a professional in Holland for NAC Breda. Margy commented: "I’m pleased to sign a very experienced striker,” and described Thomson as, “a striker very much in the Stuart Rudd mould.”

A clearly delighted Thomson said: “I’m over the moon about joining arguable the best nonleague side in the country.”
