I happen to have a colleague that is involved in the Bury phoenix club, so I thought I’d share a short update on their progress for those that are interested.
The club now have a new manager appointed, Andy Welsh. He was previously managing Osset, having played for an assortment of league clubs.
A ground share has been agreed with Radcliffe, and the club have been accepted into the 10th tier, North West Counties League.
They’re currently trying to sell shirts in order to raise funds to cover the initial cost of getting a basic coaching and management structure in place. I believe they’ve started pretty well and expect to hit 1000 sales this week.
There is a nice initiative whereby supporters buying the inaugural home shirt will get their names incorporated into the fabric of the design. Similar concept to the wall tiles and the photo album at WWFC I guess.
Of course, like all clubs it is tricky for Bury to plan for the coming season in the current circumstances. But they are at least in a position to have a club again.
