About Bury Relics
Bury Relics, formed in 2017, provide both community and competitive walking football for people from the Bury area and beyond. Community walking football is provided for the over 50’s and The Relics have three teams in the Greater Manchester Walking Football League, an over 60’s team, an over 65’s team, and an over 70’s team.
The community sessions, provided in conjunction with Bury Football Foundation, are held at Castle Leisure Centre Bury on Tuesday mornings 11:15 to 12:00. These sessions are open to players of all abilities, men and women, including players with learning difficulties, handicaps and health issues.
Players invited and interested in playing competitive walking football will become part of the Bury Relics squad. The Relics squad players initially participated in the Tuesday training session at Castle Leisure Centre, with additional training sessions introduced in 2018 at Radcliffe Borough FC on their outside astro turf pitches.
The additional training sessions at Radcliffe Borough proved an immediate hit with the players and contributed to the team’s successes in the GMWFL Spring 2019 season
From July 14th 2020 the Relics league players training sessions at Castle Leisure Centre moved to the new 3G facilities at Goshen Sports Field which provides a training environment more in line with the actual league game pitches.

If you are interested in joining the community sessions just turn up at Castle Leisure Centre, Bolton Street, Bury. Tuesday mornings, starting at 11:15am. It’s a warm and friendly atmosphere suitable for all abilities.
The competitive Relics teams play in the Greater Manchester Walking Football league. The standard of play is higher and more intense than our community sessions and so requires a certain degree of ability, tactical awareness and fitness.
Social & Other Events
It’s not all football with the Bury Relics, there is a great social side too with end of season social events, curry nights and golf days.
