We are pleased to announce our pre-season fixture list, following the announcement of football returning to Gigg Lane this summer.
We start at the first opportunity on Saturday 1st July by re-visiting Dennyfield to take on Step 5 Thackley AFC. This comes as part of the agreement that saw Tom Greaves and Aidan Chippendale sign for Bury for the final few games of last season. There will be the added bonus of our women’s side taking on Thackley Ladies in an early kick-off (times TBC). There will be a day of fun in West Yorkshire to get the season off to a flyer.
We head to the Project Solar Stadium the following Tuesday (4th) and take on Step 3 Hyde United, 7.45pm KO, before the BIG ONE and the return home to Bury for the first time since May 2019.
We are pleased to announce that for the restart of men’s football down at Gigg Lane with a double header weekend, first we welcome Mark Hughes and his League Two outfit Bradford City on Saturday 8th July, 3pm KO. Following Saturdays mammoth fixture on the Sunday we welcome Ryan Lowe and his Championship side Preston North End. Tickets are already on sale for this massive return to Gigg Lane below.
We follow up with another home game on Tuesday 11th July when fan-owned 1874 Northwich head to Gigg Lane, kick-off at 7.45pm.
The following weekend, we then head to the Moss Rose to take on Northern Premier League Macclesfield FC (Saturday 15th July, 3pm KO) before heading back to Gigg to take on Step 6 Stockport Town on Tuesday 18th July, in a 7.45pm KO.
Our last game of pre sesaon is due to take place at Gigg Lane on Saturday 22nd July as we welcome Yorkshire side Golcar United to Gigg Lane.
Due to calendar restrictions, we have been unable to fulfill our planned fixture at Seel Park this coming pre-season, but are committed to heading back over to Mossley next year.
