    2024/25 Season: Gigg Lane Car Park Policy

    As the new season draws closer we wanted to take the opportunity to update you with regards to changes we are making to matchday car parking. 

    We currently have 182 spaces available on a matchday, the majority have these are taken up by matchday squads and staff, blue badge holders, disabled people, some volunteers, opposition boards and finally some 1885 members. 

    We have the biggest car park in the division, having a car park of this size presents many operational challenges in terms of a booking in process and then managing it on the day as well which is unsustainable for a club that in the main operates off a volunteer base.


    As a result the following changes will be made for the upcoming season:

    30 spaces will be allocated for blue badge holders/disabled.  If you would like a space for the upcoming season please go onto TicketCo and pick a ticket for parking (£0 cost). You will then be required to attend the club reception (during opening hours) and collect a pass, you will be required to show a blue badge to obtain the pass.


    52 spaces will be allocated to players and officials and boards.

    The remaining spaces will be on a first come first serve basis charged at £5 (cash only on the day and we would ask that were possible you have correct money).

    This decision has not been taken lightly but saves many man hours from an operational perspective whilst also driving further revenues for the club to invest in fan related activities.

    New Catering Partner: The Difference Group

    We are delighted to announce a new catering partnership with The Difference Hospitality Group for the next six years at Gigg Lane.


    This is a fantastic partnership for the football club and we think the fans will love the new food offerings in all the key areas of the club. This will include the 1885 Suite, Eye Level sponsors lounge and the in-stand kiosks.


    We are happy to announce that at our first game at Gigg for the new season, we will be giving every fan a £2 voucher towards a meal deal. This is a thank you to supporters and hopefully will go some way to earning your trust in our matchday offering going forward.


    CEO Neil Sears said: “I am excited to have a chance to refresh our catering offer at Gigg Lane, last season I had many fans comment that we could and should be doing better with our food offering.


    “One of the key areas that I want to improve on is the fan experience, this starts with the food offering. The Difference Group will offer an increased choice, better signage, investment in our kiosks, good quality and competitive pricing and the fans will see this straight away.”


    Bryan Telfer, Managing Director of The Difference Hospitality Group said: “After a competitive tender process, we are thrilled that Bury FC have chosen us, The Difference Hospitality Group, to deliver a fresh, exciting experience to fans at Gigg Lane. As sports fans ourselves, we understand what it takes to enhance the fan experience and are committed to providing consistent, top-notch service at every game.”

    Incoming: Lewis Earl

    We are excited to announce the signing of Lewis Earl from National League North side Marine.

    The 6ft 1’ centre half, who is also comfortable playing in the holding midfield role has committed to Dave McNabb’s Shakers for the 2024/25 season.

    Lewis started his career at EFL Championship side Preston North End, before departing in the summer of 2020.

    He moved on to Stockport County – spending the 2021/22 campaign on loan at AFC Telford United, Warrington Rylands and then Hyde United.

    Lewis then moved on to Chester but a serious injury curtailed a large proportion of his first season there, however he impressed in his nine appearances for the club at the back end of the season and his contract was extended.

    Following a short loan stint at Bootle, Lewis then moved to Marine.

    Dave McNabb had the following to say on is new recruit:
        Welcome to Bury, Lewis.
