Match Arrangements Leigh Genesis v FC Utd Former Players XI 16th July

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of our first ever match against Leigh RMI on 16th July 2005, an FC United Former Players XI will play Leigh Genesis on Thursday 16th July, kick off 7.45pm.

The match will be played at Atherton Collieries ground:

Alder Street
Atherton
M46 9EY

Admission prices are Adults £5, Concessions £3 and Under 18s £1.

Turnstiles open at 6.30pm.

In the last 10 years, Leigh RMI have seen a downwards dip in their fortunes, undergoing a name change to Leigh Genesis and having to withdraw from senior football. They now play in their local Sunday League and their players are looking forward to the challenge of playing against a number of FC United’s favourite players.

FC United’s team will be managed by David Chadwick, our first club captain, and will be ably assisted by Steve Torpey, the scorer of FC United’s first ever goal. Other favourites due to make an appearance include Barrie George, Zac Hibbert, Kevin Elvin, Gareth Ormes, Steve Spencer; Billy McCartney; Matty Tierney; Phil Power; Carlos Roca; Jamie Baguley; Ryan Gilligan; Joz Mitten and Dave Swarbrick

Get yourself to that football ground and relive some past memories!
