I don’t normally approve of the move from the traditional Saturday 3pm kick off, especially at non-league level, but I actually found it quite exciting to finish work on a Friday and head straight to the football. Apparently GMP moved the game so it didn’t clash with Man City’s game on Saturday. Yes, I have no idea either. Anyway, 3,600 other people agreed with me, going to Broadhurst Park to watch FC United of Manchester take on Worcester City under the floodlights. Former Premier League striker Lee Hughes took the limelight in the first half, showing his class with a nice finish from the edge of the box, before showing his darker side by getting himself sent off for grabbing Dean Stott around the throat. In the second half FC pressed for the equaliser but despite the efforts just couldn’t produce the quality required. Worcester brought on former Jamaica international Deon Burton as substitute and hit FC on the break towards the end to wrap up a good 2-0 win for them.
