    Bury News Feed



    We’re back at Gigg Lane on Saturday, but again not as we know it, for an early Saturday clash against Charnock Richard. This game will once again be played out in front of empty stands at Gigg Lane as the second game of our stadium bans comes into force this week after the appeal against the sanctions, was rejected earlier this month.

    Dave McNabb and his team will be looking to get back to winning ways after our last outing in which we fell to a second defeat in a row to Barnoldswick.

    Despite having over 70% of the possession, and shots on target being in double digits, The Shakers failed to capitalise on a late onslaught of Barlick’s goal with the visitors managing to find the net twice, leaving Gigg Lane with all three points and inflict the first home league loss under McNabb’s tenure.

    With Charnock have seemingly been a bit of a bogey team for The Shakers this season. After we led twice in away fixtures in the league and FA Cup, we only gained a point following a late equaliser, and worst still a last minute winner knocked us out of the cup. Compound this with being beaten at Gigg Lane in the Macron Cup 1-0, the team will be focused on a big performance and getting back to the form that saw us go unbeaten in the league between December and March.

    We are once again gutted that you can’t be with us again for this fixture but know that you will be with us in spirit! Wherever you are we ask you to show your support and tag us in your #ShakersSelfies across social media!

    Last Time Out – Charnock Richard (A)


    In Opposition – Charnock Richard


    In 1933 the Chorley Sunday League became the Chorley Alliance League and a Charnock Richard village team was entered, but on the outbreak of the Second World War the league and team were temporarily suspended. At the end of the War, in 1945, the Chorley Alliance League was reformed along with Charnock Richard F.C. The team proved to be a tremendous success, eventually winning the league title in the 1947-48 season, losing only two games, and scoring 107 goals. This success prompted them to try and run two teams, but they ran into difficulties and the club closed at the end of the 1948-49 season.

    In 1955, under the leadership of Ron Wilcox, the present club was reformed, and once again played in the Chorley Alliance League.

    Charnock progressed to the North West Counties League in 2016-17 after finishing as runners-up in the West Lancashire League in the previous season and won promotion to the Premier Division of the NWCL in the first season when finishing runners up in Division 1. In the 21-22 season the club won the North West Counties League, League Challenge Cup.

    Last season, Charnock finished 11th in NWCFL Premier Division. They currently sit in 9th, with 14 wins and 11 draws from only 31 games played so far. They recorded an emphatic 6-1 win against Squires Gate last weekend, before a draw in mid-week against West Didsbury.
