4 May ~ FC United of Manchester travel to Bradford Park Avenue on Sunday for the Evo-Stik League Northern Premier play-off final. The build-up to the game has been marred by disagreements between the clubs, the local council, police and safety advisors over the kick-off time and ticket allocations. Originally scheduled for 3pm tomorrow, concerns were raised about previous fixtures between the sides, behaviour of supporters and the availability of police in the area. Initially, the club agreed reluctantly to a reduced capacity with no segregation or kick-off change. But, according a statement by the FC United board, the game was rescheduled by the authorities without any further consultation with the club.
