The Shakers stand proud at the top of the North West Counties Premier Division, continuing their unbeaten run. However, last season's promotion rivals Wythenshawe Town didn't make it easy for them. Bury emerged victorious with a 3-2 win but faced a daunting two-goal deficit at the break, courtesy of penalties by Luke Nock and Danny Byrnes.
In a thrilling match that encapsulated the essence of football, Bury staged a comeback that their fans will cherish. Andy Briggs quickly pulled one back and added a second in the 56th minute. Sajjad Elhassan then capped off the turnaround with a cool penalty in the 77th minute following a foul on Lewis Gilboy. Twelve yellow cards were shown in this hotly contested battle, but remarkably, no players were sent off.
Bury's winning streak remains intact, and the excitement for what's next in their campaign continues to build.
Keeping An Eye on the Competition
Bury's closest rivals, Kendal Town, are keeping the pressure on and could match Bury's 100% record with their next win. The Mintcakes dominated Padiham in a 3-0 victory, leaving their scoring until late in the game. The Cumbrians' defence has been impressive, as they have yet to concede a goal this season.
