Youth: Accrington 2 Bury 3

16 September 2013

An impressive performance to take 3 points away at Accrington

14th September 2013

After last week’s defeat against Oldham Athletic the youth team returned to winning ways with an impressive performance at Accrington on Saturday.

The young shakers dominated the game from the start of the game to the final whistle, going on to record their 2nd win of the season. 

The score line didn’t reflect the young Shakers overall performance, after dominating possession and creating more chances on goal then the home side.

After less than just 10 minutes of play Bury could have easily been 0-3 up. Accrington Stanley’s goalkeeper was forced into making three great saves after impressive efforts from Bryaden Shaw, Regan Walker and Marcus Poscha, all being thwarted. 

Against the run of play a defensive error allowed Accrington to take the lead, putting the hosts 1 – 0 up.

Injury struck in the 23rd minute when Bury’s top scorer Ross Walker had to be substituted. The loss of this season’s leading goal-scorer didn’t prevent an onslaught on the Accrington’s goal. On 29 minutes after some scintillating build up play, Matty Cooks crossed the ball into the box. The ball fell to captain Sam Dickinson who headed home the goal to bring the Shakers level at 1 -1. The goal was a just reward for the possession and quality of Bury’s play in the first half of the game.

The 1-1 score line was short lived when just before half-time Accrington broke away on a rare excursion into the Bury half and scored from outside the box with lucky goal to put the home side 2-1 in front.

A second goal against the young Bury side proved to be the inspiration they needed to push on for 3 points. Straight from the kick-off Bury continued to create chances, with the quick, skillful movement from Bury’s attacking line up proving too much for the Accrington back line. 

The score was brought to 2-2 in style by Anthony Dudley through some clever build up play from Bury’s midfield. 

After leveling the game the Bury youngsters continued to press home their superiority. Anthony Dudley provided Brayden Shaw with another fantastic cross, just leaving a confident Shaw to finish off with an impressive goal at the far post.

The 3 points were truly deserved, although the Accrington Stanley 2 - Bury 3 score line didn’t reflect the dominance the Shakers youth had displayed on the day.
