    Match Info: Uttoxeter Town at Gigg Lane, Sat 5th Aug, 3pm KO

    Following back to back wins in our opening fixtures in the North West Counties Premier Division our focus now shifts to the FA Cup and the first fixture in this history-steeped competition back at Gigg Lane in over four years.

    After confident performances on both the opening day against Glossop North End and Colne this Tuesday (highlights below), Andy Welsh’s men have set off out of the blocks at blistering pace with eight goals in the opening two games.

    In what promises to be a fantastic occasion as we welcome FA Cup football back to Gigg, the Shakers will actually enter the hallowed turf as the “away” side due to the fixture being shifted from Uttoxeter’s OldField Sports Ground due to concerns over managing a large crowd.

    That being said we look forward to hosting Uttoxeter, their fans, volunteers, staff and players this coming Saturday.

    So Shakers, get down in numbers. BANG that drum and let’s make Gigg roar!!!
     
      In Opposition – Uttoxeter Town F.C
    The club was formed in 1972 when they split from Uttoxeter Amateurs after a disagreement on the club’s location. The club joined the North Premier Division of the Staffordshire County League. In the late 1970s the club switched over to Sunday league football but in 2012 the club switched back to Saturday football and joined the Staffordshire County Senior League.

    The 2012–13 season saw the club win Division One and became founding members of the Midland Football League in 2014–15. Despite finishing fifth in the division, the club dropped back down to the Staffordshire County Senior League for financial reasons. In their first season in the Staffordshire County Senior League the club entered the FA Vase for the first time, progressing to the third round before being eliminated by Coleshill Town. The prize money they earned from their FA Vase cup exploits enabled them to overcome their financial issues and they re-joined Division One of the Midlands league the following season.

    In 2021, Uttoxeter were promoted to the Premier Division based on their results in the abandoned 2019–20 and 2020–21 seasons.

    Match Info: Colne (A), Tues 1st Aug, 7.45pm KO

    After 1547 days without competitive football, Bury FC finally returned to league action on Saturday. And what an occasion it was – dispatching a competitive Glossop North End side 5–1 to take a very early position at the top of the NWCFL Premier Division.

    We cannot thank the fans enough for cheering us on to victory in the historic occasion at Gigg Lane, with the attendance of 5,451 – a record for this division!

    The first away game arrives just three days later at Colne, who suffered a 3–0 defeat at West Didsbury & Chorlton on the opening day. Andy Welsh will not be taking anything for granted and will want a repeat performance against Paul Weller’s side. He is expected to name an unchanged side with no injuries picked up on Saturday.
      In Opposition – Colne
    Colne FC were formed in January 1996, and moved into the vacant Holt House Stadium, once used by Colne Dynamoes.
     
    The Red Army struggled until the 2003/04 season, when they finished top of the NWCFL Division 2 – 10 points clear of second place and scoring 102 goals. They also made it to the semi–finals of the FA Vase, defeating AFC Wimbledon along the way.
     
    Season 2015–16 saw Colne win the NWCFL Premier Division title, securing 100 points and scoring over 100 goals. They also reached the final of the League Cup. The next few years saw success in the Northern Premier Leagues and various cup competitions, until they were relegated last season.
      Tickets
    Pay on the gate is available but it will speed things up if fans get their tickets in advance from the link below:
      Buy Tickets HERE   Prices: £7 for adults, £5 for concessions (over–65s, students & those registered disabled) and £1 for under–16s (all these are subject to small service charges if purchased online).

    Men’s U23 Team Entered for 2023/24

    We are pleased to inform that an application to enter an U23s team has been accepted for this coming season, with an update on the process below.
      As part of the club’s plans to rebuild all of its footballing infrastructure including pathways through from grassroots football to senior men’s and women’s football, we are progressing a men’s U23 team for this coming season.
      The establishment of an U23 team is pivotal to our growth as a club over the next few seasons, and we have significant ambitions to progress our senior men’s and women’s teams up the National League System and Women’s pyramid respectively.
      We have had an application accepted for the Lancashire Football League where several other Northern Premier League and North West Counties Football League clubs have U23 teams.
      Fixtures are yet to be released but we are aware the season will run from 2nd September 2023 to 4th May 2024. Home games will typically be played weekday evenings on a 3G pitch at local venues, depending on availability.
      The team will be a mixture of reserves, development players and possibly first team players returning from injury. The team will be fully under the responsibility of the football board and we are currently progressing the process for appointment of a manager for the U23 team.
      There will be more developments to announce in the coming weeks and we are now opening the process towards appointing a manager of this team for next season. If you are interested, we would welcome CVs to be sent to chair@buryfc.co.uk before Monday 7th August, 5pm.
      Be #ShakersTogether, Be #PartOfIt, Be #BuryFC for 2023/24.
