Bury FC 2 Rotherham United 1

I attended the Bury v Rotherham match this afternoon as a guest of Bury MBC who were one of the sponsors.

Whenever Bury play Rotherham I have rather divided loyalties because I watched and supported Rotherham for many years before moving to Bury. Even though I now watch Bury more frequently than Rotherham and I want them to do well as any true football fan knows you can change your political allegiance, you can change your religion and some people even change their husbands/wives but you can’t change your football team!

Today’s game really was to use the terrible football cliche “a game of two halves”. In the first half the Shakers lost a striker and their goalkeeper through injury and in the resultant four minutes of injury team the Merry Millers scored so going in at the interval one goal to nil ahead.

The second half saw the Shakers equalise shortly after the restart and they played much better throughout the second 45. Despite Stephen Dawson missing a penalty Richie Baker sent the home fans home happy with a well taken goal in the 84th minute.

Update
I should point out that as on the previous occaision when I attended a match as a guest I have sent a donation in lieu of the hospitality received to Bury Hospice.

  1. You will be disapointed to hear high flying defender Ryan Creswell is out injured for up to 6 weeks with an ankle knock. The big defender has damaged ligaments and had to leave the field after just 17 minutes. the 21 year old bury defender has played 11 games this season and will be a huge loss to the bury defence. Bury havent lost since September. i was lucky to see them in action against Chesterfield where they won 2-1,i went out in Bury town that night for a few drinks seen as i was stayin at one of the villagehotels in Bury.

    • Thanks for your comment Andrew. I think to be correct the Shakers record of not being beaten only applies to the league. Nevertheless let us hope this record can continue for the rest of the year.
