For those who don’t know, Newton Heath, the birthplace of Manchester United, originally wore Green and Gold (the current colours of the Anti-Glazer protest).
FC United who currently compete in the Unibond Premier League and play at Bury’s Gigg Lane have drawn up plans to move into a 5,000-capacity stadium at the Ten Acres Lane sports centre although the club must secure backing for the £3.5m project.
Andy Walsh the club’s general manager said:
“The significance of this location is historical while it will also showcase a new model of facility development, based on football supporter ownership and community involvement.”
If approved the stadium could be ready for the start of the 2012/2013 season.
