Bury have played a total of 19 games on 30th January, winning seven, drawing four and losing the remaining eight. Of those 19 games, the following five stand out:

The First League Game

1904 brought West Bromwich Albion to Gigg Lane for a Division One game with the Shakers. The game attracted a crowd of approximately 6,000 supporters who watched as the Shakers claimed a 2-1 victory, thanks to goals from Billy Wood and Frank Thorpe.

Highest Scoring

Ten goals were scored in a 1929 Division One game with Manchester City at Maine Road, though unfortunately for Bury, their four were to prove mere consolation goals in a 6-4 defeat with a 20,000-crowd watching on.

The Bury goals came from John Ball (2), Norman Bullock and Les Vernon.

Highest Attendance

28,812 supporters flocked into Gigg Lane for a 1926 FA Cup Fourth Round game with Millwall. The game went to a replay, following a 3-3 draw with the Bury goals coming from John Ball, Norman Bullock and an Ernie Matthews penalty.

Best Home Win

Bury beat Mansfield Town by three goals to two at Gigg Lane in a 1982 Division Three game. The Bury goals came from Stevie Johnson, Mick Butler and Paul Cruickshank.
