FC United: 'Club of the Year'

FC United: 'Club of the Year'

We are delighted to announce that the Non-League Paper (NLP) has awarded FC United ’Club of the Year’ and Rory Patterson ’Player of the Year’ for Step 6 in its annual awards.


The Club of the Year title is a national award for the whole of non-league football so there were a whole host of worthy candidates this year, which makes winning the accolade extra special.


A number of club officials and playing staff were delighted to receive the awards at a brief presentation at Gigg Lane on Wednesday night and were equally thankful to Sammy McIllroy for taking time to come and present them.


Board member Jules Spencer said: "We are made up to receive the NLP’s top award and thank them for honouring us with it, particularly as there are countless of other non-league clubs with a longer history than ours that could lay claim to the title.


"Teams such as Accrington Stanley who returned to the Football League, or clubs such as Tamworth, Northwich Victoria, Nuneaton Borough and Burton Albion who all reached the third round of the FA Cup. Nonetheless the award caps our own amazing season."


Photos of the presentation and more detail from the paper itself will appear here later and will be covered in depth in this weekend’s Non-League Paper.
