Bury to line up against Duff and Villa's City side
BURY’S players have been given the chance to pit their wits against David Villa and Damien Duff.
It is one of three friendlies scheduled by the Australian A-league side, who will also be playing Bolton Wanderers and Oldham Athletic.
As well as Melbourne’s two big star players – Duff and Villa – the Shakers could also find themselves up against former England midfielder Frank Lampard, who will play for the A-League team before joining up with MLS club New York City – also part of the growing City stable.
Before facing Melbourne, Bury will kick off their pre-season campaign at Radcliffe Borough on Wednesday night, kick-off 7.30pm.
