FC UNITED of Manchester are set to move to the birthplace of Manchester United after announcing plans for a new ground in Newton Heath.

The Unibond Premier League club, formed by United fans angered by the Glazer takeover in 2005, have drawn up plans for a 5,000-capacity stadium at the Ten Acres Lane sports centre. The scheme has the backing of Manchester City Council, which owns the site.
