Andy Walsh FCUM

I've heard that Andy Walsh the General Manager of FC United will be speaking at the Co-op Manchester Area Party AGM (delegates only) on Saturday 17th March. So he'll be missing the Abbey Hey away game to be played at Hyde United's ground. You might know that FC United is a bona fide Industrial & Provident Society, one member one vote, and it costs 10 GBP a year to be a member. Interesting choice, and I'll admit to bias being a member and like Andy come from sunny Stretford too. Supporters owned football clubs have made some headway in the last few years (there are 5 Football League Clubs including dear old Stockport County), now receive official UEFA backing (link), even a little Government money for Supporters Direct but clearly a long way to go.
