IT'S LOOKING like FC UNITED has finally cracked it and got planning permission for a stadium of 5,000-capacity at Ronald Johnson Fields in Moston in Greater Manchester. Though a group of local residents still hope to block the stadium by being granted a judicial review.

FC UNITED is a non-league club, originally formed in protest at the Glazier family's takeover of the premier league club Manchester United. Last Friday, a High Court judge found that planning approval for the FC UNITED stadium should stand. Thus, the rebel club now has a opportunity to create a home for their club: recently FC UNITED have been playing at Gigg Lane in Bury for their home games. Some Moston residents have welcomed the judge's verdict, considering that the £4.6 million plan will bring in investment and offer facilities to the young in the area. Others fear that the stadium will be built on a green field site and introduce problems.
