BURY AFC are set to play their first ever public game on Wednesday night.

The Shakers phoenix club have played training games under the watchful eye of manager Andy Welsh ahead of their inaugural season.

But it was announced on Monday that fans will be able to attend their friendly trip to fellow North West Counties First Division North side Daisy Hill.

Admission details for the 7.45pm kick-off are still to be confirmed with the crowd limited to 150 due to the Government’s current restrictions.

Another friendly has also been announced at Atherton Collieries on September 12 where significantly more people are likely to be allowed through the turnstiles.  

The NWCFL season is due to begin on October 3 and Bury AFC yesterday added former Shakers youth team player Bailey Sloane to their squad.

The 17-year-old joins the club from AFC Fylde having come through the ranks at Gigg Lane.

He said: “There’s a massive buzz about the club and I’m proud to have the opportunity to be part of it.

“The manager and coaches have been helpful to my game already and I can’t wait to get going.”

Welsh said: “Bailey’s come in and has really caught the eye.

“He’s one that we can’t wait to work with and he’s shown early on that he has an exciting future, if he continues to work hard at his game and take on board information from the management and more senior players.”
