  • Midweek Reviews 31 July - 3 August 2023



    Shakers fans, brace yourselves! We've made two wins out of two in the North West Counties Premier Division. Here's the roundup of the midweek games:

    The First Division South champions, Wythenshawe, continued their impressive start in the Premier Division. This time, they served another 4-0 defeat to fellow promoted side Cheadle Town. Twice scoring in each half, the Ammies are now topping the table, but we know it's early days.

    Burscough's fans must be ecstatic after winning a five-goal thriller at home to Lower Breck, clinching the winner just five minutes from time. Despite trailing twice, Burscough showed resilience and debutant Alberto Canache provided the dramatic winner.

    Now let's talk about what you've been waiting for - Bury! Following up the 5-1 opening day glory over Glossop North End, the Shakers marched to a 3-1 victory at relegated Colne. The boys in blue wrapped it up in the first half, with Andy Briggs and Benito Lowe scoring for the second game in a row and Darius Palma sealing the third. Colne managed a consolation, but the Shakers are on a roll, and we're loving it!

    Kendal Town is also off to a great start, recording another 1-0 victory, this time over Longridge Town. Robert Wilson's penalty secured the Mintcakes another three points.

    Wythenshawe Town notched their first win of the season with a 3-1 home triumph over West Didsbury & Chorlton, recovering from an early own goal to take the victory.

    In other games, AFC Liverpool edged Skelmersdale United 3-2, while Prestwich Heys dominated Pilkington 3-0. Ramsbottom United's last-minute heroics ensured a 2-1 victory over FC Isle of Man, and both Irlam and Barnoldswick Town continue their unbeaten starts.

    Rounding out the fixtures were draws for Squires Gate and Charnock Richard at 1-1, while Padiham and Litherland REMYCA played to a goalless draw.

    Shakers, the start to our season has been nothing short of thrilling. Two wins from two, and we're hungry for more. Keep backing the boys, and here's to making this season memorable. Let's keep the faith and support the Shakers all the way! #UpTheShakers! #BuryFc #UTS
