‘My Dad’s ashes are on that hallowed turf’ 

It’s devastating losing my club. Personally the club has been my life for 39 years. I am 5th generation supporter so the whole family are affected. Without Bury, football is nothing and I won’t be able to watch or support any other team.

Do you have any hope for the future?

There is always hope, starting again is a possibility. I just hope we can keep Gigg Lane as it’s our home and holds so many memories.

When did you start supporting Bury FC? Lifelong Bury FC supporter 

First ever game: Bury 0 Chelsea 1 Tuesday 31st October 1972

Your favourite memory as a Bury fan?

Watford away in 1997. W were promoted to the now Championship after 0-0 draw with a last minute Dean Kiely penalty save. We won the League a week later.

What does the club’s demise mean for both your own personal life and your life as a fan? 

After 47 years of supporting a single team, losing it is truly unthinkable. My Dad’s ashes are on that hallowed turf and all my family are dyed in the wool shakers. My fathers death is the only day comparable to today.
