Lowe Closes in on his 200th Career Goal

2 March 2016

Ryan Lowe is close to scoring his 200th career goal in all competition, currently sitting on 198 goals.

Veteran striker Ryan Lowe’s goal last night against Peterborough United made the Bury legend two goals away from having 200 career goals to his name.

The 37 year-old has scored 66 of his 198 career goals wearing the white and blue of Bury Football Club which has ensured his place in the history books of Bury FC.

Lowey wants to score as many goals as he can for the rest of the season, not for himself, but to ensure his beloved Bury FC finish in the best League position they possibly can.

Speaking after the Peterborough United win, Ryan Lowe said: “It’s obviously in the back of my head, it’s a case of just doing my bit for the team. We need points on the board, we need to get winning and get up the table.

“When them goals come, it’s an extra bonus, but as you say it’s two goals and hopefully I get that in the near future, but it’s not something i’m waiting on. 

“Instead I’m thriving on it and that’s probably why my performances are hopefully good enough, but I want the three points just as much as I want goals.”

Lowe struggled to force himself in to David Flitcroft’s plans during the first half of the season due to injuries and the form of summer signings Leon Clarke and Tom Pope.

This caused Lowe to be sent out on loan to another one of his old hunting grounds in Crewe Alexandra earlier in the season where he impressed for the Railwaymen scoring two goals in 6 competitions,

This meant that when the loan was up, Flitcroft opted for the striker to return to Gigg Lane to fight for a place in the team, due to injuries in the squad he was called up to action at the end of January and hasn’t looked back since

He explained: “Crewe was the only place i’d have gone, I wouldn’t have gone down south. The club itself is a family club a bit like here and I needed to go somewhere like that to get that bounce back ability that I needed.

“They were brilliant with me there and I loved every minute of it while I was there to be honest, and then obviously coming back here to a club I love just as much means a lot to me.

“I had to wait for my chance, but fair play to the Gaffer he’s put a bit of faith in me and hopefully i’m repaying him and the fans back.

“I’ve got goal targets, I want to play and I want to win and that’s what I am, i’m a winner and I want to play as many games as I can and that’s what i’m doing, so long may that continue.”
