Bury FC legends will return to Gigg Lane next month in support of the Len Johnrose Trust.

The match will take place on Sunday, October 9, in honour of former Bury FC midfielder, Lenny Johnrose, who died in August, aged 52.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Len Johnrose Trust, which supports people living with motor neurone disease (MND).

The trust was established after the Lenny was diagnosed with the disease in 2017 and has since raised thousands of pounds to support others living with MND.

In a statement, Bury FC Supporters’ Society, said: “After being diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2017, Len not only fought the symptoms but fought to raise awareness of the disease and set up the ‘Len Johnrose Trust’.

“Losing him was difficult for so many, but we are left to celebrate the life of a remarkable footballer and a remarkable person.”

While at Bury FC, the midfielder played 194 games and scored 20 goals in two spells between 1993 and 2003.

Bury FC legends will be joined by players from Lenny’s other former teams, including Blackburn Rovers, Burnley FC and Swansea City.

The squad will take part in the inaugural "Len Johnrose Legacy Trophy".

The last legends match took place in July this ywar and saw Bury FC take on Burnley, raising almost £3,000 for the trust.

Tickets for the match are available on the Bury FC Supporters’ Society website.
