    Bury News Feed



    Will it ever stop raining? It seems like it hasn’t stopped for months, doesn’t it?

    We look to “go again” after our Tuesday night fixture against fellow promotion hopefuls Wythenshawe was rained off due to a waterlogged pitch.

    We have to celebrate the work of our grounds team and volunteers who have worked hard throughout what has been the wettest February on record to get games on but unfortunately on Tuesday, after an afternoon of rain, they were left with no time to clear the pitch and have it ready to play.

    Our attention now turns to this weekend and the visit of Lower Breck, one of only five sides who have managed to beat The Shakers this campaign who will this time face a much-changed Bury side, with only three of the matchday squad of sixteen still being with us at Gigg Lane.

    Breck have had mixed fortune in their last six outings with 2 wins, 2 draws, and 2 defeats. They currently sit 8th in the Premier Division table just three points off the playoffs and 19 points behind Bury having played one more game.

    It should be a great game of football featuring two sides who still have it all to play for! Get down, be loud and proud, and support your Shakers!

    Her Game Too

    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.

    In Opposition – Lower Breck


    Founded in 2010 in Liverpool’s Tuebrook area, Lower Breck Football Club quickly established itself with a youth-driven approach aimed at future successes. Winning the South Liverpool Youth Division Title in their first season, they moved to the prestigious Carlsberg West Cheshire Association Football League, subsequently making history by winning the league title, West Cheshire Youth Plate, and LCFA County Cup—a first for any West Cheshire League team.

    Joining forces with Famous Grapes Football Club in 2012, Lower Breck entered the Liverpool County Premier League’s 2nd Division, winning the title in their first open-age season. Their ambition led to a European victory at the 2013 Rheintal Trophy in Cologne, Germany.

    By 2013/14, playing as Lower Breck FC in the Liverpool County Premier League’s 1st Division, they earned promotion to the Premier Division. By 2015/16, the club expanded to five teams, emphasizing growth and securing multiple domestic cup victories.

    Achieving an unbeaten record and sweeping all competitions in the 2017/18 season underscored their dominance in Liverpool football. Transitioning to a North West Counties affiliated member within ten years, Lower Breck FC exemplifies grassroots development, setting sights on FA Cup football and benefiting from community support.
