2 Home Games over the weekend in The Emirates FA Cup & The BetVictor Northern Premier League


Two Home games for The Boro this weekend as we take on Runcorn Town on Saturday and FC United Of Manchester on Monday, both games kick off at 3pm.

Runcorn Town:
Radcliffe welcome Runcorn Town to the Neuven Stadium for the first time in The Emirates FA Cup. The two clubs have never met before in any competition.

The Boro reached the Second Qualifying Round last season and lost 1-0 at home to National League North side Curzon Ashton. Our best run in The FA Cup was The First Round in 2000.

Town first entered The FA Cup in 2011, their best run in the cup was the Third Qualifying Round in 2014 losing 5-2 at home to Norton United but did beat National League North side Barrow away from home 1-0 on their cup run. Runcorn Town beat Rylands in the Extra Preliminary Round 2-0 to meet The Boro. Last season they reached the First Qualifying Round but lost at home to Irlam 3-2.

Kick Off is at 3pm and Season Tickets do not apply for this fixture.

FC United Of Manchester:
The last meeting between the clubs was back in 2014. A Manchester Premier Cup First Round Tie at the Neuven Stadium. A 1-1 draw on the night with The Boro progressing to the next round 3-1 on Penalties.

Both sides haven't met in a league fixture since the 2007/08 season, with FC United being relegated from the National League North last season and Radcliffe being promoted to the Northern Premier League we meet again in the league for the first time in 11 Years.
As it was an 18 team league that season we met 3 times. Two games at the Neuven Stadium a 1-1 draw and a 2-0 away win for FC United, and a 2-2 draw at Gigg Lane in the away fixture.

The Boro lost their opening day fixture to current early leaders South Shields 1-0 at home and had a Tuesday night game at Bamber Bridge postponed so we will now have up to 2 games in hand on many teams in the league.
FC United lost their first two opening games of the season a 3-2 defeat at Grantham Town on the opening day and a home defeat to Hyde United on Tuesday night.

Kick Off is at 3pm
Entry is £9 Adult, £6 Concession, £2 U18 and U16s are Free!
