Shakers Fans Head to Germany!
A group of Bury fans recently made their annual trip to Germany as they watched their adopted German lower league side for this year, Rot-Weiss Oberhausen, win 5-1 over Bonner SC.
Jonathan told us ‘The Oberhausen fans really took us in, teaching us songs, wanting to learn Bury songs etc. Following this, the Oberhausen fans insisted they bought us all a drink so we stayed around the train station for a while after just chatting with the locals again, who just found it amazing that we had gone to watch their club! A few numbers were exchanged, and they made us promise that we would go back next time we are in Germany. I think it's fair to say that this is the best day we have had in Germany. New friends were made, who will all now take an interest in Bury FC!’
