On This Day...20th December

20 December 2018

Bury have played 18 games on 20th December, winning six games, losing five games and drawing the remaining seven games. Of those 18, the following stand out...

The First

An 1890 Lancashire League game away at Rossendale brought a 5-1 win for the Shakers with 3,000 supporters watching on. The Bury goals came from Conway (2), George Ross (2) and Jack Plant.


Biggest Win

The above game was also the club's biggest victory on this day, closely followed by a 4-0 victory over Walsall in Division Three in 1986. 2,311 supporters were on hand to witness goals from Winston White and a Liam Robinson hat-trick.



Biggest Defeat

A 1913 Division Two clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Gigg Lane brought the club's heaviest defeat on this day. 11,000 supporters were on hand to witness a Bury goal from Fred Wilson, though Wolves responded with four goals of their own to record a 4-1 defeat.


Highest Attendance at Gigg

A 1924 Division One game with West Bromwich Albion at Gigg Lane attracted a crowd of 23,000 supporters, who unfortunately witnessed a 2-0 defeat.


The Last

York City provided the opposition for the last game played on 20th December in 2014. A League Two clash attracted a crowd of 3,313 supporters and goals from Andrew Tutte (pictured at top of the page) and Daniel Nardiello helped the Shakers along to a 2-2 draw.
