FC United of Manchester are a club in their building stages and are a fan owned club looking to establish themselves in the English game.

FC United have 4 different teams they have the: First team, the reserves, the youth team and even a women’s team and for a club that hasn’t been around for very long they have made some excellent progress in the few years that they have been around.

The first team are currently top of the Northern Premier Division league with 8 games remaining and have a 7 point gap between them and the team in second place. FC United’s fans are some of the best in the non league scene averaging around 2,000 every match. Whether that be on a Saturday afternoon or on a Tuesday night the fans never fail to show up as they are making a stand against the ownership of Manchester United and are pushing the club to higher and better places. The reserve team also are top of their league with only a few games left in their league as well with the guidance of Rhodri Giggs are trying to push higher and get some of their players into the first team in the coming years.

The Youth team, after a difficult start to the year, are now sitting in second in the league and are only 3 points behind top spot. Yesterday the team played a match and won convincingly 9-1 with goals from Sam Summerbee who got 3 goals, Dominik Williams who got 2, and also goals from Robson Buckley, Boris, Toby Wright and Zac Cooper.
