A new signing has arrived at Gigg Lane, just in time for our end of season celebrations! It's not a player, but rather a huge Bury FC flag, paid for by and representing the online community of Shakers fans, who are members of the message board, gigglane.com.
Affectionately known as Beardyman's Big Bury Board – named after loyal supporter Adrian Webb, who went by the moniker of Beardyman – every bit of opinion, nonsense, wit, rumour, conspiracy, fandom, gossip and general chat is had about all things Bury FC.
The flag depicts past and present crests for the Club, the message board domain name and also the phrase, 'Beardyman Lives On'. Adrian was a true supporter, who also sponsored the Club in various initiatives. He was an unselfish man, whose online presence was often irreverent, irascible and politically incorrect, but always with the best interests of the Club at heart. He represented all that was good about the football family and, just prior to his sad passing, the message board became dedicated to him.
Now, both he and the message board, will be permanently showing their support of our club, on behalf of Bury fans around the world.
Beardyman Lives On.
