Bury FC played their 14th league match of the season on October 18th as they faced off with AFC Wimbledon in a match that concluded with Bury FC losing 1-2 and this was the 5th successive league loss in the team of David Flitcroft.
Flitcroft is the coach of Bury FC and he believes that in order to help the current situation of the club, the senior players have to step it up. The 42 year old English spoke to the press after his side lost against AFC Wimbledon and he said:
‘’I have brought some very good, experienced players to this football club but it was the likes of Niall Maher who really stood up in the 2nd half and that was excellent but I’m not wanting Niall at this stage of his career to be outstanding, I want my experienced players to stand out in those moments’’
‘’I’m massively disappointed that we haven’t learned something from all those defeats, drawn a line in the sand, seen the game out for a point, and then we could have built on from that. Second half was better for us because we found a rhythm’’ David Flitcroft of Bury FC said.
Joe Riley who plays for Bury is one of the highly sought after player for a summer transfer move away from the club, according to TeamTalk.com. A lot of clubs are reported to be interested in landing the player. They include Shrewsbury, Burton Albion, Bolton and Fleetwood Town.
The 24-year old began his professional career at Bolton Wanderers but couldn’t make much impact as he would have wanted as he was out injured most times. The most notable achievement when he was at the club was when he was particularly impressive in the 5-0 thumping of Stoke city FC in the English Premier League
. He was given a standing ovation when he was finally pulled off the game.
Riley left the club to play for Oxford United on loan. During his spell at United, he made 24 appearances for the club but wasn’t retained after the season. He didn’t have much left on his deal at Bolton and the club didn’t extend it, so he joined Bury on a free transfer in 2015. He couldn’t even start immediately at the Lancashire club as he suffered a hamstring injury.
English League One side, Bury have lost another critical encounter as the season keeps getting worse for the team.
The outfit currently in 15th position having garnered 57 points from 45 matches prosecuted hoped to end the League One season on a high but fell to a straight third defeat in the hands of Chesterfield.
Chesterfield confirmed their place in League One next season with an emphatic victory over Bury. Jay O’Shea opened the scoring from the penalty spot after Cian Bolger had blocked Gary Liddle’s run into the box. In first-half stoppage time Lee Novak’s 25-yard strike deflected in to double the hosts’ lead. Bury’s Danny Mayor wasted a clear chance to pull one back before Dan Gardner finished off a classic Chesterfield counter-attack to seal the win for the hosts
The match was a 50 – 50 but with Chesterfield having more shots attempted. Chesterfield had 16 with only six being on target while Bury could only manage five with just two hitting their targets. Chesterfield enjoyed more corner kicks while Bury fouled more on a ratio 11:9. The loss leaves Bury in Chesterfield in 18th position with 53 points from the same number of games as Bury. Read More
