In our final home game before the Christmas period, we have some important things to note ahead of the game for supporters attending at Gigg Lane this weekend.
We have finally received notification of permitted numbers and from this weekend, the bar in Starkies will be open before, during and briefly after the game with a private function due later in the evening.
Supporters who are seated in the Main Stand will have access to Starkies from the point the ground opens at 1.30pm, with ALL supporters able to gain access to the bar after game up to the allowable capacity.
We are delighted that the hard work, time and money that has gone into refurbishing this area for supporters to gather during games has finally come to fruition. We look forward to welcoming all this weekend and onwards. Please bear with us as we manage demand and refine the process over the coming weeks.
Santa visits Gigg
In an event originally planned for our home game with Ramsbottom United, which was postponed on Saturday 9th December, Santa has kindly re-jigged his busy schedule at this time of year to visit Gigg Lane ahead of the Charnock game.
Santa will be on the club car park between 1.30-2.30pm.
Grab your picture, let him know what you would really like under the tree next week and there will be some small treats to give out to those who have been very good this year.
This event has been set up in conjunction with our good friends at The Rotary Club of Ramsbottom and on behalf of Bury Hospice. The collection buckets will be out in force for our generous supporters can give everything they can. We really appreciate it!

Children’s Hospital – Toy Collection
In our area, very poorly children are served at either the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital or Royal Bolton Hospital. In this festive season, we are getting behind the efforts and providing support for the Children’s Ward at the Royal Bolton Hospital.
In an event always planned for this weekend’s fixture, we are asking supporters to donate new toys to distribute to the unfortunate children who will spend their Christmas in hospital.
As supporter David Hutton, who’s daughter Isla spent two Christmases at the Royal Bolton, explains in the below article taken from the programme last month:
We will be collecting toys in the Main Entrance of the Main Stand ahead of the game and Santa will be delivering these gifts directly to the hospital later in the day. Unfortunately, we cannot accept cuddly toys or anything inappropriate for young children, like toy weapons etc.
