BURY Hockey Club’s men’s first team remain on course for a top-three finish after they were in record-breaking form on a double header weekend.

On Saturday, they came from behind to draw 2-2 at Kendal before rewriting the history books on Sunday as they thumped Ormskirk 15-0 - a new record victory for the first XI.

In awful conditions in Kendal, Bury had led through James Larmett’s penalty stroke only for the home side to hit back to take the lead. But Jordan Lee, on his return after injury, drew Bury level, tapping in from close range after the ball broke to him via Rob Fogwill.

On Sunday, it was goals galore for Bury who made the most of facing an Ormskirk side who played the entire game with 10 men.

Jack Marshall-Grint helped himself to five while Danny Nicholls and Rob Fogwill bagged a brace each. Ben Hope, Matty Lee and Johnny Bray all scored but it was Lee who stole the headlines as he scored his first ever hat-trick and brought his tally to four goals in two games this weekend.

Bury Men’s second XI took on local rivals Horwich at Thornleigh and ran out 6-0 winners.

Bury dominated from start to finish and led 4-0 at the break with Ian Hillary scoring his first two goals of the season while Ricky Aspinall and Andy Foster were both on target before the break. Samit Ghosh put the game to bed with two good finishes after the break.

Bury ladies firsts have reached the All Division Cup final after beating Horwich 7-0 - with Emma Bailey hitting a hat-trick of venomous penalty corners. Charlotte Bates (2) Lilly Furse and Abby Barber rounded off the scoring.

Bury now await either Didsbury or Heaton in the final.
