After last weekend’s FA Cup tie was called off against Radcliffe Women at Unsworth Cricket Club, we can confirm the rearranged tie will take place at Gigg Lane this Sunday (8th October). 2pm kick-off.
Entry will be £3 for adults and £1 for concessions, fans will be seated in the Main Stand.
Turnstiles will be open from 1pm and it will be pay on the day only, no pre-sale tickets will be available.
Manager Jason Jarrett told us, “We are really looking forward to welcoming Radcliffe in this FA Cup game and even more so now that it will be played at Gigg Lane. This is a massive opportunity for both teams to play in the oldest cup competition in the World and to showcase their abilities to a wider audience on a bigger stage.
“After a positive pre-season, we’ve had a challenging start to the league campaign. As a coaching team, we have been trying to challenge the girls with new ideas and formations to improve us collectively and individually but this takes time and it resulted in us having a tough start to the season but we also know that we deserved to take much more from most of the games and have only narrowly missed out on points against teams like Tranmere Rovers, Blackburn Community and West Didsbury. Playing on a bigger pitch will hopefully suit our style of play and I’m sure the professional surroundings of Gigg Lane will inspire our girls to play to the best of their abilities.
“In our last performance, a confident and dominant 4-1 league win over Blackpool, we started to show what we are capable of and we will be looking to build on that result this weekend, plus with a couple of new additions over the next few weeks we believe we are heading in the right direction.”
Casey Lynchey, head of women’s football at Bury FC added, “We would like to thank everyone involved in getting this game played at Gigg Lane this weekend. Both teams were disappointed not to play last week and will be looking forward to the prospect of facing National League opposition, in the next round, whilst also showing what a vast array of talented female footballers we have in the borough. I’m sure this will be a really entertaining match that will be played in the right spirit and we would urge people to come down and show their support for both teams.”
We’d like to see as many fans at Gigg Lane as possible on Sunday afternoon for what is a big FA Cup tie!
