FC United Friendly vs Bury FC Preview

FC United are set to take on probably their toughest opponents yet this Wednesday as they face their landlords Bury FC at Gigg Lane.

The Shakers finished 19th in Coca-Cola Football League Two last season and they are bound to provide a stern test as it is the first time the Reds have faced a team from the Football League.

The match will be extra special for United`s player-coach Darren Lyons as he played for Bury during the early '90s and has fond memories of his time there.

He said: 'I would say that my time at Bury has to be one of the highlights of my career. I loved playing for Bury and I was sad to leave for Southport, but money was tight so I really didn`t have much of a choice.

'I think that my favourite moment at Gigg Lane would have to be the game against Hull City on the 4th April 1992, which we won 3-2. I scored two goals and I think Liam Robinson scored the other and I was particularly happy with the headline `Lyons tames tigers` the day after.'

They will be no divided loyalties on Wednesday night though as Darren is keen to push on towards another successful season with FC United and he knows that preseason friendlies are a good way of seeing which players are up to the challenge.

Kick off time will be 7:45pm and admission will be £7 for adults and £2 for all concessions. FC United fans have been allocated the Cemetery End and the South Stand if necessary.

The board have quashed rumours currently doing the rounds that we will be 'playing Bury for the park` and that the winner will get to keep Gigg Lane.
