    The 2023/2024 season was an eventful one from start to finish. Through the highs and lows, one thing has been consistent – the volunteers who dedicate themselves week-in, week-out have been at the heart of everything we have done as a club.

    Whether it be working to look after the ground during the week, operating the turnstiles, selling Pound For The Ground raffle tickets, or helping clear the stands on match days, you’ve done us proud and you represent everything that is special about our club. For all of your hard work, we thank you.

    In the off-season, thoughts turn to next time around and we need to ensure we continue to have a strong pool of volunteers to help run the club on matchdays. Both Men’s & Women’s sides will be running out of Gigg Lane next season, so as many volunteers as possible will be needed. Details of how you can get involved in 2024/25 are below.

    The success of Bury Football Club at all levels is dependent on our army of volunteers, and we want to invite you to get involved in any way you feel able, and for as much or as little time as you can spare.

    Whilst we have a dedicated group, it’s important that we ensure as many areas as possible can be covered on a matchday and through the week.

    The list below gives you an idea of the kind of tasks our volunteers help us with:

    • Ground Staff: for general maintenance through the week and assistance on match days
    • Match Day Customer Service: Supporter assistance, way-finders and stadium litter picking
    • Match Day Hospitality: Staff / player / visiting team / sponsor / hospitality catering, meeting and greeting
    • Media Activities: Broadcasters, film-makers & video editors, camera technicians, media runners, match photographers, graphic designers, social media content creators, club marketing, website technicians, match reporters, editors & writers
    • Matchday Experience: Flag-bearers & preparation, music & announcements, mascot & junior team co-ordinators
    • Commercial Activities: Club Shop operators / sellers and programme sellers
    • Fundraising Activities: Administration of fundraising activities, selling match day tickets and organising / co-ordinating new events
    • Financial Activities: Accounting and book-keepers
    • Plus many more….!!

    We’ll be holding a Volunteer’s Open Day on Saturday 6th July from 10am-12noon where you’ll have the chance to come and explore the club, have a chat with us, and get a feel for everything we do. Please note this date is for new volunteers only.

    At a follow-up day on Saturday 13th July, we will have a team of our current volunteers to dive into the specifics of each role and what we will be expecting you to do at each game.

    Volunteer Coordinator, Samantha Harman said: “Being a volunteer for Bury FC is great fun and so rewarding knowing we are giving something back to the club we love.

    “We are currently recruiting for various roles that would fit anyone.

    “If you feel you could make a difference for your club then I would 100% advise you to get involved.”

    Having a strong group of volunteers means that we can give our fans the most welcoming matchday experience every week, and helps to keep our costs down leading to a fully sustainable club long-term. Ideally, you will be able to commit to helping out at every home match, but whatever time you’re able to give will be gratefully accepted, and we want you to come and chat with us to give you a chance to see how you can help.

    If you want to be #PartofIt with the club for the 2024/2025 season, fill out the form below and we look forward to welcoming you to the session at Gigg Lane on Saturday 6th July!
