The mens 1's had a great win yesterday in the Ipswich Summer League beating an Ipswich Development XI 7-1.
Bury raced out of the blocks with George Bedford scoring a brace of goals in the opening fifteen minutes. Not to be outdone, skipper Alex Bibby followed suit and also scored twice in the following ten minutes. No further score saw Bury enter the half-time break 4-0 up.
Bury again started quickly and Alex Bibby completed his hat-trick five minutes into the second half. The goal tally was further increased when 14-year-old Ben Smart, making his 1st XI debut, crashed the ball into the top right hand corner to mark his arrival at this level. With fifteen minutes of the match remaining, George Bedford completed his hat-trick as well to see Bury go 7-0 up. The Ipswich XI kept going and grabbed a consolation goal with ten minutes of the game remaining.
Final score 7-1 to Bury - a good result for the young team.
