FC United 2018/19 league fixtures announced

FC United’s 2018/19 National League North fixtures have now been announced.

We will begin our campaign on the opening day of the season away to Stockport County on Saturday 4th August 2018.

This will be followed by our first home game of the season on the following Tuesday night against newly promoted Ashton United on 7th August 2018. The first home Saturday match of the season takes place a few days later on 11th August 2018 against Boston United.

There is a home Boxing Day tie against Chorley at Broadhurst Park, with the reverse fixture taking place on New Year’s Day.

Our final home game of the season is against Blyth Spartans on Easter Monday 22nd April 2019, followed by the final game of the regular season away to Brackley Town on Saturday 27th April 2019.

Manager Tom Greaves discussed his thoughts on the upcoming campaign following the announcement.

He said: “After seeing the long awaited fixture list for season 2018/19, We couldn’t have been given a more exciting start. The league is so strong this season, lots of clubs with big budgets and many teams going full-time, we have some great fixtures to put us to the test."

“With favourites for the league Stockport County away in our first game, we know we are in for a tough start to kick off our campaign but we will be well prepared going into this game. The rest of August sees us playing teams with lots to prove, Ashton United and Altrincham will want to prove their worth in this league after being promoted and Chester will be looking to bounce back into the National League after relegation last season."

“We still have lots of work and preparation to do but we are very much looking forward to what will be an exciting season”.
