LIAM MacDevitt believes promotion with Bury AFC has been the highlight of his career - eclipsing honours previously achieved on his footballing journey.

The 27-year-old was on the books at Yeovil Town when they went up to the Championship and was also part of promotion-winning sides at Horsham and Lewes in the Southern League.

But MacDevitt believes helping AFC win the NWCL First Division North title beats the lot - especially as he was there from day one.

The attacker said it was an 'unforgettable' campaign as they finished 11 points clear and losing just one game throughout the season.

"We had such a good group of players and some had been there from the very start," said MacDevitt.

"To go from a training session where we had a bag of balls and some training kit to winning the title in front of that many people and seeing what it meant to the supporters, it was unforgettable and hopefully we can add to that."

Comparing the title to previous achievements, MacDevitt added: "I think it is the best. I was a young youth team player when Yeovil were promoted to the Championship, I was in and around the first team but not sure if I really count that one even though I was in the squad and a part of that group of players that got promoted in to the Championship.

"Obviously that was incredible but it was so early in my career and I hadn’t really played the games to warrant it counting.

"The non league ones for teams in the south, Lewes and Horsham being involved in successful teams they was great but definitely this Bury team and the group of players and want it means to the fanbase in the town is definitely up there for my achievements in a football shirt."
