    1. "Selfless" Benefactors Insist on No Influence – Just a Tiny Bit of Election Meddling!

      Our sole motivation from day 1 has been to return to a united Bury FC to Gigg Lane for ALL supporters and the community. We have objected in the past when certain members of BFCSS sought to dismiss those who followed Bury AFC, The Pendulum has now swung entirely the other way as SCS seeks to cleanse the management of any BFCSS representatives and marginalise the Benefactors as much as possible.
      This is morally and commercially wrong. By the FANS for the FANS means all fans, not just those that happen to agree with a small group of the leadership.
      It is so disappointing to feel forced to issue this statement as there is so much to be celebrating – the number and hard work by the volunteers (matchday and every other day/night of the week), a great atmosphere at matches, especially at Gigg, some memorable moments like the first match and Benito Lowe’s lastminute winner against West Didsbury & Charlton. Also it’s great to see the many new, young fans coming to matches and loving the experience just as much as those who’ve been watching for years and returned to their beloved Gigg. If we’re all together this can become even greater, if we’re divided the honeymoon period will sadly end.
      Please ensure that in the forthcoming vote for elections to the new CBS3 board you consider carefully who you elect, or we are seriously worried that the control will rest in a small group that in our experience is not focused on an inclusive, sustainable, community football club.

    2. #HerGameToo Weekend

      This weekend our fixtures across both men’s and women’s first team games will celebrate women in football, and in sport in general, as we endorse the ‘Her Game Too‘ message.

      The club is affliated with the #HerGameToo movement, an organisation founded in May 2021 with the aim of raising awareness and educating others on the importance of inclusivity and diversity in sports. Their video above, was viewed hundreds of thousands of times and the quest to eliminate sexism in football had begun!

      We are proud to be one of hundreds of clubs, in both the professional and semi-professional / grassroots settings, to be affiliated in the UK.

      Whilst starting within football, and by a group of female football fans spread across the UK, HerGameToo has resonated significantly across the sporting landscape, with like-minded initiatives now set up covering cricket, rugby and ice hockey. The start of the campaign highlighted the inequality felt, particularly by women, in the stands at football grounds across the country. But this is not limited to football supporters on the terraces, we want to see the same acceptance and inclusion on the pitch and behind the scenes.

      We start the build-up to this weekend by introducing the team of ambassadors and advocates for the club, starting with Samantha Harman who volunteers as matchday volunteer co-ordinator at Gigg Lane. Sam sat down with buryfc.co.uk to answer questions around how she got involved with #HerGameToo.
        Club #HerGameToo Ambassador, Sam Harman Hello Sam, please can you give a quick introduction of yourself and what involvement you have for Her Game Too?
       


      What is your main goal as the Her Game Too ambassador for Bury FC and what are your hoping to achieve in your role as ambassador for women who go along to football matches at Bury?
          The Her Game Too campaign has really taken off, how pleasing is it to see such a campaign for women especially after seeing recent campaigns like Kick It Out and Rainbow Laces?
          How did you become aware of the Her Game Too campaign?
          Why did you decide to get involved in Her Game Too?
          Have you ever been subjected to any kind of sexism at a football match or on social media yourself?
          Bury FC Women’s Chloe Greenhall wheels away after scoring at Gigg Lane earlier this season What changes have you seen over the years in the attitudes towards women going to watch football in general?
       


      We have seen women’s football really grow recently especially with the lionesses winning the Euros and being runners-up in the World Cup. How good is that to see?
       
        How good is it to see Bury FC promote women’s football as much as they do with the men’s team?
          What would you say to any female fan going to football matches who hear things they don’t want to or who are subjected to any sexist abuse? What would you advise them to do?
          It’s not just about highlighting sexism and discrimination towards women at football matches but Her Game Too also promotes women’s participation in football too.
          We will continue to build up to our #HerGameToo Weekend ahead of the fixtures, but if you want to be #PartofIt grab a ticket for our game against Lower Breck at Gigg Lane by clicking below:

        Hello Leigh, thanks for talking to us. Tell us about yourself and why did you get involved with football?

       
        You are the Women and Girls Development Officer for Manchester FA, what does that involve?
          As well as that, you also referee women’s football too?
          What made you want to become a referee?
        On top of that you also play for Bury FC Women too, how do you find the time?
        In all your roles, which one do you find the hardest?
       
        With so many women now participating or watching football, do you see a difference in how women are treated compared to men?
        Do you think the historic perception of women in football is changing for the better?
        What advice would you give to any girl or woman who wants to start playing, coaching, refereeing or
      watching football?
        What would you say to any female participant or fan playing, involved or going to football matches who hears things they don’t want to or who are subjected to any sexist abuse? What advice would
      you give them?

    8. 3G Pitch Update

      We are pleased to confirm that we have now signed the contract to install a 3G pitch at Gigg Lane this summer.

      We understand the frustration supporters feel around frequent match postponements due to the poor condition of the grass pitch this season. It is important that we maintain a focus on the long term success of the club. An artificial surface means that we can grow the reach of the club by bringing the wider community into Gigg Lane, make the stadium more financially sustainable, and build a base from which all of our teams can train and play, giving players the consistency and familiarity they need to succeed.

      Payment will be made in phases as the work progresses. The initial payment will be met by the Society reserves and we will receive matched funding of £300,000 from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities. This will utilise the full £1m available from their Community Ownership Fund.

      We will also draw down funding from Bury Council who are contributing £450,000, as approved by their Cabinet recently. We are finalising a Community Development Plan with Bury Council which will commit us to a programme of work in the borough designed to maximise community usage of the stadium through a diverse number of initiatives, not just football.

      Our objective for the new season is to retain a strong balance sheet and drive greater revenue through pitch hire, which will be limited to 50 hours per week to protect the surface over the next 8 years. As highlighted in our previous statement, a significant amount of this revenue will be allocated to a sinking fund to replace the pitch when required, be it another artificial surface or a return to grass.

      At this stage of the season we know there is a focus on results with the ultimate aim of promotion. Football provides us with an opportunity to live in the moment, and we don’t want to dampen the joy that those moments bring to our supporters. Off the pitch, however, we remain relentless in our pursuit of a bigger, longer term objective to maximise the potential of the club in all areas.

      We also recognise that the grass pitch has a specific place in many supporters’ hearts. Not least those who have the ashes of their loved ones scattered there. With this in mind we would like to confirm the following:
       
      We will hold a ceremony at Gigg Lane for anyone who has had the ashes of a the friends or relatives scattered there, to allow them to say a farewell once more. Details of the ceremony will be announced as soon as we have the date. We will sell up to 500 pieces of turf from the Gigg Lane pitch, presented in seed boxes, to raise funds for the club and allow supporters to own a little piece of history. The dimensions will be 344mm x 214mm x 52mm and the first pieces bought will also receive a free copy of James Bentley’s book on Bury Football Club ‘Things Can Only Get Better: Bury’s Mid-90s Rise Under Stan Ternent’. We are grateful to James for this donation. There will also be a raffle for the two penalty spots. Further details will follow. Artificial grass is not as environmentally friendly as real grass. We believe the good we can do throughout the community outweighs the cost overall, but we do recognise our responsibilities to the environment. We are grateful to our shirt sleeve sponsors, Redfox Countryside Services, specialists in ecological management and restoration services, who have offered their services to help develop Starkies Wood, next to Gigg Lane, in a way which will contribute towards eventually making this project carbon neutral. The stadium is one of the oldest in Britain, and it would be wrong to pretend that carbon neutrality is easily achievable, but this is one step in that direction and we are extremely grateful for the thoughtful and unprompted offer of support from Redfox Countryside Services on this matter. It would require Council approval.

      There is also an early stage idea around a commemorative garden using the centre spot.

      The sight and smell of a grass pitch is something we all have imprinted in our footballing DNA. Our move to an artificial surface is a rational one, supported by an overwhelming 92% majority of our members. That doesn’t mean we don’t recognise the past and our emotional connection to it through places such as Gigg Lane. We hope this note shows an acknowledgment of that.  It is just the start of many ideas and initiatives for the forthcoming months.

      As always, keep across the latest from the club on the website, X / Twitter & Facebook.

    9. A brave new future for the Treasureline Partnership

      Many Bury fans will fondly remember the old Treasureline lottery of yesteryear, that unfortunately fell on hard times due to bad management and the impact of Covid.

      Industry experts and Bury town centre based NYCDA refocused the old approach to ensure the name wasn’t lost and proceeds were continued to be generated by being a part of their NYCDA Weekly Draw.
       
      We want to try and restore Treasureline to its former glories in just the same way that Bury Football Club and Gigg Lane have been brought back to life. You can follow Treasureline on X (formerly Twitter) to the right.

       



      Encouraging as many people as possible to sign up to Treasureline supports both the club and provides the funds to allow Bury Football Club to extend its reach into the wider community in Bury by supporting to development of women’s football, developing youth teams, and reaching out to schools and charities who can all play a major part of our future growth.
       
      Football Club Chair Marcel de Matas commented on the benefits of Treasureline:

      Whether you’re a passionate supporter or someone interested in supporting a community project, you can support the refreshed Treasureline Partnership by becoming a participant in the NYCDA Weekly Draw.

      You can play for as little as £1 per week with the opportunity to win fantastic cash amounts including a main weekly prize of £1,000, as well as a £500 rollover, which can rise to a huge £10,000. Additional prizes ranging from £10 to £100 are also up for grabs every Wednesday. For information including how to join, as well as some insights where the proceeds are used and the kind of work this partnership will continue to support, please click on the image below.

    20. Away Shirt Design Vote

      Last month our members voted yellow and navy as the colours for next season’s away kit.

      We now want you to choose the design.

      Our current policy is to rotate kits every two years, to reward supporters for buying replica kits and keep them up-to-date for longer. As we started the season with two new kits, home and away, we need to break this rule just once so that home and away kits are changed in alternate years. The current away kit will be kept as a third kit.

      The vote will allow you to make your selection in order of preference which improves the accuracy of the results.

      Vote emails will go out to all members over the next few days. If you aren’t a member please sign up on this site asap to get involved.

      Sign up and get your vote here on the FSSB website

    25. Behind Closed Doors Ticket Update

      We have set in motion the process to refund single tickets bought for the games played behind closed doors, as we have an existing process via our ticketing company for this. Season tickets do not have an equivalent process.

      Unfortunately, on a practical level it is impossible for us to offer a straight forward refund for season ticket holders. It would require us to gather and hold everyone’s bank details and take many months to process, as we do not hold bank or card details for supporters.

      We don’t have the resources to pay refunds promptly, and it poses a security risk if we hold bank details for a significant period of time. This is another reason why we would have preferred a fine, rather than a stadium closure.

      For this reason our preferred options are:
        A large number of supporters have told us they want us to keep the money. We are obviously grateful for this and hope the ability to live stream both games behind closed doors offered some value in return. We have also been asked about donations to compensate for loss of revenue. We would prefer supporters to waive form of credit than donate money at this stage. There is a possibility we may need to navigate our way through the play-offs. This would give us at least one additional home game and maybe other tickets which we could add into the season ticket in lieu of the games missed. If the above options are not taken, we will offer a ‘gift card’ which supporters can use to offset the cost of next season ticket or against any other single tickets including friendlies and cup games. This also allows us to spread the financial burden over a number of months, and we are able to administer it, as it offers credit and doesn’t require a bank transfer.   We appreciate some supporters may prefer a straight forward refund but on a practical level we cannot manage this process en masse. Clearly the options above require an assessment of the situation at the end of the season, so are not immediate.

      We have a member vote coming soon on the away kit design for next season and will include an advisory vote on this matter to allow members to approve or reject the broad policy stated above.

      Thank you for your continued support.
