the north face Hereford FC to play FC United of Manchester in first game back at Edgar Street
FC United of Manchester board member, Alison Watts, added: “In the summer that marks our tenth anniversary, we’re looking forward to being the first opponents to visit one of the newest fan owned clubs.
“We wish Hereford FC every success as they begin on the same journey that we’ve enjoyed so much.”
The Pennydarren Park encounter will take place on Saturday, July 18, with gate receipts split between the two clubs, while the game against county side Wellington will be on the following Tuesday.
“These two games are also very attractive and we’re particularly pleased to make the commitment to travel to Merthyr,” said Watson.
“Many people involved at Pennydarren Park have been a fantastic source of information for us as we have gone through the process of setting up our club and we were very keen to organise a game against them as a mark of our gratitude and to cement the bond between the two clubs.
“The match is likely to see us reunited with a number of old friends and we also look forward to congratulating Merthyr properly on winning the Southern League South and West Division this season.”
