Due to other commitments, both intrepid Bury Relic news reporters were not present, so others kindly provided the information on what was a very good day for the Bury Relics over 70s team.
The results and scorers were as follows:
Bury Relics 2 – 0 Blackpool (Goal scorers were John W and John M).
Bury Relics 4 – 0 Tameside (Goal scorers were John W x2, John M and Keiren T).
Bury Relics 0 – 2 Rochdale
Dave M’s concise summary of the day’s events (Thank you, Dave);
Will add some dialect. Under grey skies and persistent drizzle, the Relics brought some sunshine to proceedings with a victory over Blackpool more emphatic than the score line of 2 – 0 suggests, thanks to goals from the midfield dynamos Jomo and Woggy. This good performance transferred to the second game against Tameside, with a complete performance throughout the team to register a 4 – 0 win. Woggy and Jomo were again amongst the scorers with Kieran also getting on the scoresheet. With legs getting heavy in the third game against a good Rochdale side, a third win proved a step too far, resulting in a 2 -0 defeat. Overall, some good football was played, with all players making a contribution.
Team on the day was as follows: Eddy in goal, Keiren T, John W, Dave M, John M, Tex, Pete A and Tony P. Team management came from Ken and Keith S. Thank you to Kodak Keith for the great photos and video.
