FC United of Manchester recorded a highly encouraging start to their pre-season campaign with a 3-0 home win against EFL League Two outfit Morecambe FC at Broadhurst Park on Tuesday evening.

After having to soak up early pressure from the visitors, the opening goal came for FC United on 38 minutes. Great build up play on the left by Mike Donohue, Regan Linney and then Adam Dodd set up LOUIS MYERS who made no mistake from the edge of the six yard box.

On 67 minutes, it was 2-0. Chris Sharp was tripped on the edge of the Morecambe FC penalty area and PAUL ENNIS curled home the resultant free-kick giving visiting substitute ’keeper Mark Halstead no chance.

CHRIS SHARP made sure of the result on 86 minutes when he rifled home a nicely weighted Mike Donohue pass from the edge of the 18 yard box .

Morecambe FC went close on a number of occasions but couldn’t find any way past goalkeeper Paddy Wharton or his late replacement Adam Bruce.
