On This Day...22nd October

22 October 2018

The first two games for 22nd October brought the Shakers a total return of thirteen goals with only five conceded.

We kick-off way back in 1887 and a friendly game with Great Lever. Just 1,000 supporters were on-hand to see the Shakers demolish the Leverites with a 7-2 victory with the goals coming from Douglas (2), George Ross (2), Duckworth, Hitchin and Lomax.

The second game on this day took place some five years later in 1892 in the Lancashire League at Rossendale. This time 4,000 supporters were on-hand to see Bury win the game 6-3 with goals from Billy Barbour (3), George Bourne (2) and Wilkinson.

1904 saw the Shakers on the road and a trip to the Midlands for a Division One game at Small Heath, or as they are known now – Birmingham City. It turned into not a good day for Bury, as the home side hit five goals to Bury's none. 15,000 were on the gate.

Keeping with the Midlands theme, Coventry City arrived at Gigg Lane in 1921 for a Division Two game. 6,000 supporters watched on as Bury won the game 3-2 thanks to goals from Jimmy Trotter (2) and John Aitken.

1927 saw the Shakers back on the road and back to Birmingham City, this time for a Division One game at St Andrews. Tom Bradshaw and Martin Davin both found the back of the net in a 2-2 draw, played in front of 15,000 supporters.

1938 brought Nottingham Forest to Gigg Lane. 8,090 supporters were in the Stadium for this Division Two game and watched as the Shakers claimed a 2-1 win thanks to goals from Jack Ormandy and Archie Livingstone.

A 'Floodlit Friendly' game with Scottish side East Fife took place on this day in 1957 at Gigg Lane. The Shakers had recently installed floodlights at Gigg Lane and were keen to get them working, so arranged a series of 'Floodlit Friendlies' to showcase this new addition to the ground. 2,284 supporters were on hand to witness a 2-1 Bury win thanks to goals from Harry Darbyshire and Peter Tilley.

It's back to our Midlands connection again for 1960 when the Shakers travelled to Coventry City for a Division Three game at Highfield Road. With 11,302 supporters watching, goals from Don Watson and Johnny Hubbard secured a 2-1 victory.

1983 brought Wrexham to Gigg Lane for a Division Four game and a crowd of 2,320 watched as Paul Hilton plus an own goal from Wrexham's Colman handed Bury a 2-0 victory.

Bristol City made the long trip North in 1985 for a Third Division fixture at Gigg Lane. 2,460 supporters left the game having been thoroughly entertained with a 6-3 victory for the Shakers thanks to goals from Martin Dobson (x 2 – 1 penalty), Darren Beckford, Winnie White, Craig Madden and Kevin Young.

The full Bury side that afternoon was as follows: -

J Butcher, Lee Dixon, Terry Pashley, John Bramhall, Peter Valentine, Martin Dobson, Winnie White, Craig Madden, Darren Beckford, Joe Jakub, Kevin Young.

1988 saw Bury back on the road with a long trip to Kent for a Division Three game at Gillingham. Just 2,850 supporters witnessed a seven-goal thriller with Bury coming out on top with a 4-3 win, thanks to a Liam Robinson hat-trick (pictured at the top of the page) and a fourth goal from Charlie Bishop.

2011 saw the Shakers on the road and a long trip to the South Coast for a League One (tier three) game at AFC Bournemouth, where Giles Coke and Andy Bishop scored the two Bury goals – with former Shaker Marc Pugh scoring for Bournemouth – to record a 2-1 victory in front of 6,122 supporters.

The last recorded game on this day took place in 2013 when Mansfield Town came to Gigg Lane for a League Two (tier four) game. The game finished 0-0 with 2,518 supporters attending.
