Matchday Programmes

Once again we seek to bring you an informative publication to read while at the match, on the way home or later in the weekend, if that suits your lifestyle.

On Saturday we have an interview with FC’s goalkeeping coach Paul Chapman, where he reveals his impressive CV and the joy he has gained from watching keeper James Spencer dispel the doubters with some excellent recent performances (he is defs jinxed now...)

We also have the latest historical piece from Bernard Bull on north Manchester’s last semi-professional club Manchester North End. This one focuses on the role the fans played in keeping the club going and saving it on more than one occasion.

We have a nice piece from Phil Frampton on the forthcoming Year of Co-operatives, in which FC United is featured heavily and Andy Walker’s report on Big Coat Day.

Added to that we have another crank in Meet the Owners, match reports, ace pictures from our crack (I said crack) team of photographers and a packed news section. Oh, and Margy mithers on a bit in his manager’s notes.

For those unable to attend the Boxing Day game against Ashton, the programme (and those of the rest of this season’s back catalogue) is on sale at the programme stall on the Gigg Lane forecourt.

You missed a Christmas cracker. We had an in-depth piece on Ronald Johnson by military history researcher and United fan Dave O’Mara, a lovely poem by Rob Fullen about his granddad’s last visit to Old Trafford, a fantastic meet the owners with Ed in Germany, an interview with FC’s last 12th man Wayne Clark and an article about the reds’ conditioning coach who is set to leave to ply his trade in Thailand’s Premier League.

All this for £2. You are getting a magazine as well as a matchday programme, if the truth be told. All profits to the club, which goes without saying. If you’re one of these modernists who lives a minimalist existence and can do without clutter, then once you’ve read it, why not use it to help promote the club? Put it on the table in the doctor’s surgery or in the magazine rack at your local cafe (or posh boozer), or even put it with the free papers on the bus. Spread the word...
