  • Match Info: Barnoldswick Town (H), Tues 12th Mar, 7.45pm KO

    Bury News Feed



    We return home, but not as we know it, for a Tuesday clash against Barnoldswick Town in front of empty stands at Gigg Lane as the first of our stadium bans comes into force this week. The appeal against the ban to play two games behind closed doors, was rejected last week.

    Supporters will therefore not be able to watch from the stands for this game, or Saturday’s fixture against Charnock Richard. A summary of what this means has been outlined here.

    Despite this, the squad will be keen to jump back upon the horse after a stumble at weekend when we left the RG3 Digitial Stadium with no points in a disappointing game against Irlam.

    The teams cancelled each other out in the main, without many gilt edged chances for either side on a windy day in Salford. It was the hosts who grabbed the only goal of the game mid-way through the first half, with Ethan Cartwright lashing home a drilled shot from the edge of the box. Chances for Daniels on his return to Irlam, as well as Miles Storey, Sam Burns and Benito Lowe all didn’t hit the mark and we fell to defeat for the first time in 15 league games.

    It was also the first league shut-out of the season, with us hitting the net in all of the other 37 games up to Saturday, scoring 96 times in the process. The goals are there, and manager Dave McNabb will be hoping the squad return to form this week. The gaffer’s post-match interview from Saturday is available below.

    If this Tuesday’s game is anything like the reverse fixture when we visited The Silent Night Stadium in October, goals we will not be short of.

    In the manager’s fourth outing, we smashed seven unanswered goals past a fancied Barlick side, and stamped down our promotion-seeking credentials in the process. You can find the highlights to that game below.


    Last Time Out – Barnoldswick Town (a)

    Post-Match: Dave McNabb


    In Opposition – Barnoldswick Town


    The modern club formed in 1972 under the name Barnoldswick United (1972), after earlier incarnations in the 1920-30s folded soon after formation. Joining the local Craven & District League, before transferring to the East Lancashire League in the early 1990s, with two teams representing the club.

    In the late 1990’s, the club expanded to three teams, when 1st & 2nd team teams joined The West Lancashire Football League, and a new 3rd team staying in The East Lancashire League.

    The 2003/2004 season brought the amalgamation of Barnoldswick United (1972), Barnoldswick Park Rovers and Salterforth Juniors and we changed our name to Barnoldswick Town Football Club.

    It had always been in the club’s constitution to get the ground up to the minimum standards of The North West Counties Football League. The club were successful to be included from the start of the 2009/2010 season, being promoted at the first attempt after finishing as runner-up a position that they have maintained to this day.

    Barlick have maintained a fairly comfortable mid-table position after flirting with the play-off positions in the earlier part of the season. They currently sit in 16th position in the league, with 11 wins and 10 draws from 35 games so far. Last time out on Saturday, they lost to Wythenshawe Town 3-1.
