Cup giant killers show solidarity with BBC strikers

FA Cup giant killers FC United of Manchester refused to take part in the BBC's flagship Football Focus show today in solidarity with striking BBC journalists, according to The Workers United blog.

The non-league club was formed by disillusioned Manchester United fans in protest at the running of the club following the takeover by the Glazers. FC United beat Rochdale 3-2 last night in extra time.

Club general manager Andy Walsh, told The Workers United blog: "I told Football Focus producer David Garrido that we would not be taking part in solidarity with the strike."
