New programme for Witton game

After a lengthy debate, it was decided that we would do a brand new programme for the rearranged Witton game on Saturday.

We sold a few hundred of the original programme at the original game and it was deemed fair that a new programme be produced due to people having already bought the previous one and the long time lapse. The other option involved reselling the remaining copies from the original fixture, with an insert with new news, as we tend to do with postponed games.

But due to the unique circumstances with this fixture, you will have the chance to get a brand new programme with the usual high quality content.

We have an interview with author Matthew Bazell who wrote the interesting tome ’The Theatre of Silence - the lost soul of football’. He reveals the thought process behind his book and also tells us what one infamous front man makes of the FC version of one of his band’s most celebrated songs...

German red Erik is over for the game on Saturday, with some other international FC fans, and he tells us all what made him fall in love with FC United in the next instalment of our ’My club’ series.

Steve Wood’s latest ’Where are they now?’ piece centres around a man who was integral in helping get the club off the ground back in 2005.

Supporters Direct chief David Lampitt discusses community stadiums, with reference to our plans for Moston.

Many of you will recognise the DJ we have in this issue’s Meet the Owners.

Meanwhile, we once again delve into our archives as we look back seven years to our first promotion push, as covered by The Guardian at the time.

The usual extended away team section, including pen pics put together with help from the excellent Northwich Guardian sports editor Andrew ’Simmo’ Simpson, sits alongside match reports, stats and ace pictures. You can also read what Margy thinks of the new additions to the squad.

All this for the never changing £2 cover price.

Remember you can visit the club shop website or Tom Stott’s excellent programme stall at Gigg Lane to get past issues. You can also purchase the pdf versions of this season’s publications from the website. Visit ’programme downloads’ in the ’programmes & binders’ section of shop
