FC United of Manchester have announced this Saturday’s home game with North Ferriby United is to be a Youth United Day. This means anyone under the age of 18 will be able to gain free entry into the Main Stand or Manchester Road End at Gigg Lane. This is a saving of £5 on the usual concessionary admission fee and the club is rightly winning plaudits for the gesture.

The club has invited local community groups and are looking to make a real day of it with lots of pre-match activities from 12.30pm onwards taking place on the forecourt outside Gigg Lane and at nearby Holy Cross College.

Youth United Day 2009 is a celebration of youth participation and achievement allowing young people the opportunity to experience matchday atmospheres. One of FC United’s primary aims is to offer affordable and accessible live football to the local community.

Due to the high numbers expected for the 3pm kick off FC United advise all supporters to arrive in good time to avoid delays at the turnstiles. They will do their best to ensure groups can sit together but, again, it is suggested you get there as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
