My Club My Community

Say it with us: My Club, My Community. Following on from the recent announcement to incorporate women's football into the club’s official structure, we would like to ensure that we look to engage with, and represent, our community as a whole.

19 February 2019

Our new headline website banner includes representation from participants of our charity’s football engagement programmes across grassroots boys, girls, women and those with disabilities, as well as over 50's walking football. These are real members of our community and part of the Bury FC family, as well as people with whom we are proud to be associated with. Further introductions will be released in the coming weeks, as well as behind-the-scenes videos and interviews with our participants and working partners across the charity’s community initiatives.

Moving forward, we also felt it important that information is more readily available and accessible to fans and supporters, who either wish to simply know more about the club and our charity’s community projects or would like to get involved and participate. Therefore, should you click here to get involved' it will take you to our new micro-site, where you can view information on many of the charity’s projects, as well as contact details for our Community Manager and her team to help you access any provision. Regular stories will also feature, as well as interviews and behind-the-scenes documentaries showcasing the fantastic work carried out across the borough.    

We believe that football has the power either directly, or through association, to change people’s lives for the better by reducing isolation, breaking down social barriers or via many other means. We take our place in the community very seriously and will strive not only to give our loyal supporters a team to be proud of on the pitch, but a club to be proud of within their community.

We have to ask ourselves, why would someone choose to support our club? What do we do to help their community, where they live, where they go to school?

We MUST aim not only to inspire and entertain on the pitch, but to inspire and engage in the classrooms, in the playgrounds and in the hearts and minds of the next generation. So that they can say, ‘this is My Club, My Community’.
