Bury Town v Ipswich Town Reserves

I visited the Ram Meadow in Bury St Edmunds to watch Bury Town play Ipswich Town Reserves in a pre season friendly. Just over a 1000 attended this match which is about 5 times the normal gate for a Bury match. The kick off was put back to 8pm as most people like me arrived at the ground just 10 minutes before kick off as you never usually get any que to get in.

These are exciting times at Bury Town as they have been promoted to a higher tier of non league football to play in the Rymans Divison 1 North. They certainly seem to have a decent squad and one that is capable of doing well in this league.

Daniel Cunningham scored the only goal of the game which was a well taken volley after 20 mins. For long periods Bury defended in depth and played counter attack. Barber in goal for Bury was man of the match.

For Ipswich Scott Baron and Danny Haynes were given full games. Jim Magilton was there to view his young players of whom it is hoped 1 or 2 will make the step up and start pushing for the 1st team.

A good fitness work out for both sides
