Fleetwood Town 0 Bury FC 3
Bury FC’s youth team stretched their unbeaten league run to 7 games on Saturday with a comfortable win away to Fleetwood Town.
The young Shakers started the game much the brighter of the two sides and by the fourth minute they'd forced the home keeper into making two smart saves to keep the game level.
The game took on much of the same form as the Blackpool away game two weeks ago, with the game being a story of attack rather than defense with Bury having no fewer than 16 shots on target in the first-half alone.
Matthew Cook had a couple of chances from set plays which he could've done better with and Sam Dickinson had two shots from long range which tested the keepers handling.
Brayden Shaw and Navid Nasseri both got in behind the back four and could have done better with their efforts.
Anthony Dudley missed his chance to put the Shakers in front when he found himself in a one v one situation but he soon made amends when he opened the scoring on 31 minutes. Ben Potter played clever cross field ball onto Brayden Shaw who took one touch to play Dudley in for a another one v one; this time he made no mistake to put Bury 1-0 up.
Fleetwood Town 0 – Bury 1
It didn’t take long for Bury to get back into their stride and on the front foot in the second -half. Bury’s second goal was more direct. A goal kick from Connor Keane cleared the Fleetwood back line and found Anthony Dudley who finished the chance with ease to make it 2-0.

Just four minutes later the Shakers found themselves 3-0 up. A spell of clever and neat passing from the back into the midfield found captain Sam Dickinson 20 yards out. Dickinson struck the ball low and into the back of the Fleetwood net, leaving the keeper with no chance.
