    Your Team at Bury Football Club

    We’ve had a busy few weeks despite the lack of home games, and thought it would be a useful time to summarise a few of the new faces around the club.

    We wanted to begin a process of introducing new people into the club this season as we look to build up and work our way up the football pyramid. That process is now underway.

    Dave McNabb joined us as first team manager in October. He is supported by:

    Tim Lees – Assistant Manager
    Jack Hook – Coach
    Sam Ashton – Goalkeeper Coach
    Chris Watts – Analyst
    Darren Davies – Opposition Scout

    Aidan Bowe and Alan Raw continue to support the team as physios.

    We will establish a ‘fan forum’ to allow supporters to hear from Dave and Tim in due course.

    We also have volunteers who are intermittently involved, some working with us as part of their university studies.

    Stuart Wright has joined as full time stadium manager. He has previous experience in the role at Oldham Athletic as well as experience in security roles at other organisations. He will primarily be supported by Dave Cheshire who many of you will know has been working at the ground most days for the past eighteen months.

    Neil Sears is currently supporting us as in the club secretarial team after qualifying with a degree in football business and law, whilst he looks for a full time paid position at a professional football club.

    We are also in discussions with someone to assist with our bookkeeping on a part time basis and hope to finalise that appointment within the next week or two.

    As previously announced Jon Newby has already joined the Football Club Board and has a remit of helping the the first team manager develop an appropriate strategy for recruitment and retention of players as we move through the pyramid with its different demands and challenges at each level.

    These are all costs borne by the football club, which will professionalise the club, relieve pressure on volunteers and reduce costs within the company which owns the stadium.

    We would again like to acknowledge the efforts of all of the volunteers who have rebuilt the club since 2019, it really couldn’t have been achieved without the hard work of everyone involved. You have put us in the position that we are in today.

    Match Info: Skelmersdale United (A), Sat 25th Nov, 3pm KO

    After two weeks of cup football, that saw us exit the FA vase after a tough battle with Whickham in the North East and progress in the Macron Cup following penalty shootout heroics from goalkeeping coach and reserve keeper Sam Ashton, we return to NWCFL premier league action this Saturday as we face Skelmersdale United away at The Community Ground in Burscough.

    Following the Ramsbottom game we were thrilled to receive a note from The ‘Rams’ Club Secretary, Tony Cunningham, praising the club and our fans on the impeccable behaviour shown by all as they managed a larger than average crowd.

    We have included the note below and would like to thank our travelling fans for being a credit to the club.
        Highlights from Saturday’s drama laden Macron Cup tie at the Riverside Stadium .

    Turning our attention to the weekend we meet a Skelmersdale side that are very much going through a period of transition and transformation following their demotion from the NPL last term. Despite their mid-table finish, the Community Ground did not meet the ground grading requirements for the league and they returned to the NWCFL after just one season in the NPL.

    With former Premier League defender Pascal Chimbonda coming in at the helm just lasst month, Skem have seen a raft of personnel changes on the field and are yet to find a foothold in the league managing only two wins and two draws in their opening 23 league fixtures, leaving them sitting bottom of the table on eight points and cut adrift from the teams above.

    In the debut episode of ‘Playing Away’ this week, we caught up with Skelmersdale Chairman Frank Hughes, to discuss all things Skem and the upcoming fixture.

    You can watch the first episode below.
