For the first time since 2011, Bury St.Edmunds Men’s 1st XI are back in Division One
Bury took the lead early through a Michael Thompson drag flick however were quickly pinned back to 1-1. That didn’t last long as Bury executed a well run short corner for Nik Ciappi to slot home. Having pressed for a period, Michael burst forward with quite literally unbelievable pace to make it 3-1 at the break.
Bury started quickly again in second half with a brilliantly worked play between George Bedford and Hadley Rose before Hadley finished firmly into the bottom left hand corner. Not long after Tom Rash broke down the right before pulling it back to Owen Grisby to finish emphatically to make it 5-1. Michael, in hunt of his hat trick, picked up the ball on the halfway line and carried past a few players before bursting into the D and smashing into the bottom left corner. Bury continued to push until the end and again Mikey broke from the halfway line before slipping it right to Alex Bibby to reverse it into the corner to make it 7-1.
Man of the match was Charlie Long for a brilliant performance all over the pitch and DOD, Bibby for an over exuberant celebration for his goal.
Well done to all the team and we push onto next weekend in hunt of the league title.
