Build up to Boston - two weeks to go!

The new football season is fast approaching and the FC United players are gearing themselves up for another rollercoaster season. After narrowly missing out on the play-offs last year the squad are keen to go one better this year and are going for that top spot.

Pre-season is in full swing and after trips to Sweden and South Korea over the summer the players are looking forward to some slightly more local pre-season friendlies in the coming days. This weekend sees a visit to Hyde United, where supporters will be able to reminisce about previous visits to Ewan Fields. FC United have been successful on this ground in the past, with a 4-1 win against Glossop and a 5-1 win against Abbey Hey way back in 2006/07.

This game is followed by trips to Maine Road and Trafford on the following two Tuesday nights. Sandwiched in between on the Saturday is a seaside trip to Colwyn Bay.

The club have a number of new signings and triallists, plus a few youth team graduates hoping to impress the boss - so get yourself to that football ground to check out likes of ex-Ashton striker Ben Deegan, pacy forward Abdi Ibrahim, ex-youth team goal machine Jamie Mack and terrace regular Nick Swirad and see if you can spot the next Kyle Wilson or Jerome Wright.

And remember, all the pre-season friendlies are guaranteed to be a game of two halves - FC United receiving one half of the profits and the host club keeping the other.
