Harry Gordon - 1931 - 2014

7 August 2014

Death of former Shaker's striker


It is with deep regret that we announce the death of former Shaker Harry Gordon at the age of 82

Striker Harry arrived at Gigg Lane in 1951 and spent just over six years with the Shakers, making 24 appearances for the club after signing from Petershill before leaving for Buxton in 1956.  A former Rangers player, Harry went onto play for Runcorn (twice) and Mossley before settling back in the Bury area on his retirement from the game.

Unfortunately Harry passed away on 29 July following a fall at home.  Harry was also a recent visitor to the JD Stadium, arriving at the ground around five years ago to take a look round the ground, and left with many fond memories and a tear in his eye.  

Our deepest condolencies are extended to the family and friends of Harry at this sad time.

'Once a Shaker - Always a Shaker'

Rest in peace Harry
