FC United have confirmed that former Bolton Wanderers and Bamber Bridge player Ryan White has signed from AFC Blackpool, and David Chadwick has returned to the first-team squad, seven years after his last match.
Winger Ryan White, who turned 20 last week, has already made an instant impact, scoring on his debut in the Manchester Premier Cup on Tuesday night. White, along with Jeff King (who played on loan for FC last season) and Cole Lonsdale (who joined FC a few weeks ago) were all part of Bolton Wanderers Under-23 side last season.
And in a week that sees Wayne Rooney return to the England set-up for one last hurrah, former FC United captain, interim manager, and club legend David Chadwick (aged 41) has gone one better, signing up to Neil Reynolds’ squad to provide defensive cover, a full seven years after leaving FC United in search of more regular football. ‘Chaddy’ came on as a second-half substitute in Tuesday’s match away at Mossley, making his 210th appearance for the Reds.
Both signings will be available for Saturday’s home match against Telford.
