FC United start season with six goal thriller at Stockport

FC United started the 2018/19 season in the Vanarama National League North with a six goal thriller at Stockport County but, unfortunately, the hosts scored five of them.

The Reds had looked good in pre-season with six wins, one draw and three defeats, two of which came against clubs in the Football League.

However, that was all spectacularly undone in 45 minutes as Tom Greaves’ side were 3-0 done at halftime. The Reds got a goal back through Kurt Willoughby with 20 minutes to go but it proved to be a mere consolation as County added two more in the final five minutes.

Full report to follow.
