8 September 2018

The Mariners were given a lesson in finishing by Bury at Gigg Lane today.

A brace from Danny Mayor and further goals from Will Aimson and Nicky Adams saw Michael Jolley’s side being well beaten in front of 886 travelling Town fans.

Town made three changes from the 2-1 Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night, with Danny Collins returning to the heart of the defence after recovering from a broken arm.

Elsewhere, Andrew Fox made his first league start on the left of the back four, while Harry Clifton and Mitch Rose were included after playing in the Checkatrade Trophy against Notts County.

The hosts were to take the lead on 14 minutes.

Mayor broke down the left from the halfway line before cutting inside on to his right foot, before curling an unstoppable shot into the corner and beyond McKeown.

The Mariners had their chances to bring themselves level, and should have drawn level when Jordan Cook had two goes at the Bury goal.

The first saw him denied by a Bury defender after some nice build-up play from the visitors, before a mistake from the hosts allowed the striker to go through one-on-one with Joe Murphy, but he could only strike straight at the goalkeeper.

And there was another glorious chance for Town when Rose drove the ball into the penalty area from the right, but Harry Clifton couldn’t get his effort on target as he slid to meet the ball.

The Shaker’s second came from a controversial corner decision, with the ball clearly not crossing the line. From the flag kick, Will Aimson sneaked in at the back post to head home.

McKeown, who had made several saves on the day, made a great stop to deny Chris Dagnall, but the ball came straight back into the box for the striker to shoot at goal, with Adams getting the final touch to bundle the ball over the line.

Mayor grabbed grabbed his second and the Shaker’s fourth minutes later.

There are a few pubs around the ground and along Manchester Road in particular.

The Swan & Cemetery, around a ten minute walk from the ground, has previously been popular with Town fans. This Thwaites pub, is quite comfortable, serves good hand pulled beer and has a separate restaurant area. Nearer to the ground is the Staff Of Life pub, which is a basic pub serving hand pulled Lee's.

How to get there and car parking.

Leave the M66 at Junction 3. Take the left hand exit at the junction and follow this road until you come to the junction with the A56 Manchester Road. At this T-junction which has traffic lights, turn right towards Bury. You will pass the Swan & Cemetery pub on your left and then some playing fields. At the end of the playing fields just before the traffic lights and a couple of pubs, turn right into Gigg Lane for the ground. However please note that Gigg Lane is normally closed on match days and the ground itself is not easily seen from the A56.

By Train

There is no railway station in Bury itself, so most fans travelling by train are likely to end up at one of the Manchester stations. Bury Metrolink is served by trams from Manchester Victoria & Piccadilly railway stations. Bury Metrolink Station is about a 10-15 minute walk from the ground.

Car Parking

There is no parking available at the ground itself for visiting fans. Nearby at Phoenix House on Brierley Street (BL9 9HN) there is parking at a cost of ÂŁ5. Otherwise, street parking, although beware of a residents only parking scheme in operation in the nearby streets, which operates on both matchdays end evenings, with wardens patrolling the area.
