  • Match Info: Irlam (A), Sat 9th Mar, 3pm KO

    Bury News Feed



    Irlam it is this weekend and our last game of the season outside of the Borough of Bury. With six of the last nine games at Gigg Lane, and the other two away games at Prestwich and Ramsbottom, we head out onto the M60 and into Salford for the last time in the regular season. It is a 3pm kick-off at the RG3 Digitial Stadium this Saturday.

    Last weekend, we grabbed the win against a tough Lower Breck side on a difficult pitch. That said, late chances went begging for Player of the Month Andy Scarisbrick and new loan signing, Miles Storey, which would have given the scoreline a gloss that the determined performance deserved.

    However, make no mistake the side continue to turn in results which keep us at the top of the league and the form table. A winning streak that stretches four games, going 14 unbeaten as well is just the tonic as we hit the business end of the season. Irlam by contrast have been hit and miss in recent weeks, with two wins, two draws and two losses in the last six. One of those wins was away at Chadderton however, which has slowed Chaddy’s assault on the top spots which has helped us but also acts as a reminder to not take our opponent lightly.

    Sat in 13th position in the league, comfortably away from the relegation spots and with the playoffs likely out of reach, are our opponents going to playing with a freedom that could cause us problems? We will have to wait and see, but as always we need our large following to be backing from the off as we go in the hunt of another three points.

    Charlie Doyle returns from his suspension, with Dec Daniels hopefully full recovered from his illness. Both would be facing off against their former side this weekend if so, with Andy Briggs also pushing for a start as he returns from the ankle injury suffered away at Cheadle Town three weeks ago.

    ‘Playing Away’ – Episode Nine


    Opponents – Irlam


    Setup in 1969, as Mitchell Shackleton Football Club mostly competing in the local district leagues until renaming to Irlam Mitchell Shackleton in 2001 and after success in the Manchester League consistently in the early-2000s were renamed to their current name in 2006.

    Despite a relatively disappointing Manchester League performance in 2007-08, where they finished eighth, Irlam moved into the North West Counties for the following season before establishing themselves and getting promoted to their current position in the Premier Division with a second-placed finish in 2015-16.Irlam play at Silver Street, the former home of Irlam Town (1976-1995) following the relinquishing of their former home at Salteye Park, which made way for the new AJ Bell Stadium, home of Salford Reds and Sale Sharks which can be seen from the M60 around the Trafford Centre.

    Irlam finished last season in 17th, and have made a jump up the league in recent weeks to now lie in mid-table. On Tuesday night, they secured a 4-3 win away at Barnoldswick Town.
