    FC United fans

    Troubles are continuing at FC United of Manchester, the rebel club set up in protest at the Glazer ownership of Manchester United in 2005.

    Now in National League North, FC United moved into their own stadium in 2015 but in November 2016 said they were in a "worrying" financial position.

    An operational review of the supporter-owned club has been undertaken by their new chief executive Damian Chadwick, which has led to fears of redundancies.

    Now, seven former board members, who resigned in acrimonious circumstances in 2016, including founding member Adam Brown, have issued a statement outlining their concerns.

    "We are totally dismayed, disappointed and shocked at the rumoured redundancies," they said.

    "There is no acceptance of liability for the current situation the club finds itself in by the current board."

Clubs are required to provide accurate details of training sessions and player whereabouts so that they are available for testing at all times.
