PREVIEW- Leiston Reserves v Team Bury

Leiston Reserves vs Team Bury- Preview- Thurlow Nunn League First Division- Saturday 16th December 2017- Kickoff 3pm © Drew Kendall

How do the two teams fare in their most recent five games in 2017/18?
Leiston Reserves have won 1 (penalty shootout) of their last five matches. The first of which saw them travel to AFC Sudbury Reserves, where they lost 2-0. However, they did fare better in their following outing, as they drew 4-4 away to Halstead Town. That was before they made the visit to Ram Meadow to play Team Bury, where they raced into a three goal lead inside 27 minutes, but two late first half goals from Oli Selfe and Harry Moore (pen) and a late Robbie Dyson header salvaged a point for the hosts in a hugely dramatic game. Leiston’s following game saw them return to home action as they faced Whitton United in the Suffolk Senior Cup, but drew 1-1 before winning 5-4 on penalties. With their most recent outing seeing Leiston lose 8-0 away to Norwich CBS.

Team Bury have lost three of their most recent five matches, with the first seeing Bury come back from behind twice to draw 2-2 with Norwich United Reserves at home, thanks to two quality strikes from Josh Revell and Oli Selfe, who both netted their maiden Team Bury goals in superb style. With their following home match seeing them battle from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 with Leiston Reserves (who they visit for this match), thanks to a brilliant lobbed effort from Oli Selfe, a confident penalty from Harry Moore, and a classy finish from Charlie Cook to send shockwaves down the visitor’s system. Despite this, Bury lost their most recent away game, away at Brantham Athletic Reserves, as they lost 2-1 despite Oli Selfe’s goal not being enough, as the Blues were knocked out of the Suffolk Senior Cup, and have also unfortunately lost their most recent home fixture, as Robbie Dyson’s late header grabbed his side a consolation goal, in a 1-4 home defeat to ten man March Town United. Bury have also lost their most recent outing, as they were beaten 0-2 away by Cornard United, leaving Bury in 20th in the table with 11 points to their name.

How do the two teams fare in their most recent five games in 2017/18?
Team Bury have lost three of their most recent five matches, with the first seeing Bury come back from behind twice to draw 2-2 with Norwich United Reserves at home, thanks to two quality strikes from Josh Revell and Oli Selfe, who both netted their maiden Team Bury goals in superb style. With their following home match seeing them battle from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 with Leiston Reserves, thanks to a brilliant lobbed effort from Oli Selfe, a confident penalty from Harry Moore, and a classy finish from Charlie Cook to send shockwaves down the visitor’s system. Despite this, Bury lost their most recent away game, away at Brantham Athletic Reserves, as they lost 2-1 despite Oli Selfe’s goal not being enough, as the Blues were knocked out of the Suffolk Senior Cup, and have also unfortunately lost their most recent home fixture, as Robbie Dyson’s late header grabbed his side a consolation goal, in a 1-4 home defeat to ten man March Town United. Bury have also lost their most recent outing, as they were beaten 0-2 away by Cornard United, leaving Bury in 20th in the table with 11 points to their name

Meanwhile, Woodbridge Town are enjoying their football this season, as they lead the title chase after accumulating 48 points so far this season, without losing in their 18 league matches this season. This has been echoed in their last five matches in all competitions, as they have won 4 and drawn the other of their last five matches; seeing them see off, Debenham LC 3-1 at home, Capel Plough 4-0 at home (in the Suffolk Senior Cup), Downham Town 4-0 away from home and AFC Sudbury Reserves 2-1 at home. However, Woodbridge drew their last match, as Halstead held them to a 2-2 draw at Woodbridge.

Despite this, Bury lost their most recent away game, away at Brantham Athletic Reserves, as they lost 2-1 despite Oli Selfe’s goal not being enough, as the Blues were knocked out of the Suffolk Senior Cup, and have also unfortunately lost their most recent home fixture, as Robbie Dyson’s late header grabbed his side a consolation goal, in a 1-4 home defeat to ten man March Town United.

REPORT: Team Bury 1-4 March Town United

Thurlow Nunn League First Division, Saturday 25th November 2017 Match Report © Drew Kendall, 2017
Team Bury 1- 4 March Town United

Dyson 89’; Brand x1, Matthews x1, Logan x1, Smith x1

First Half Report:
Team Bury’s first game under new manager Sam Crook unfortunately ended in a defeat for the Blues, which saw the opposition go down to ten men, but still run out 1-4 winners.

Despite what the final scoreline suggests, the game was relatively equal early on, as both sides had numerous chances to take the lead. Which it was the home side who were the first to go for goal, as Oli Selfe fired his effort into the side netting from the left side of the six yard box- with 4 minutes played. Two minutes later, however, March Town had a major chance to go in front, as the ball was crossed into the left and flicked on at the back post, where Goulding made a superb save to palm it behind for a corner- with a superb dive down to his right. From the resulting corner, March Town whipped the ball to the back post, where an unmarked visiting player stood- before firing their effort over the crossbar.

This sparked another Bury attack, as McCourt crossed the ball in from the right, where Selfe headed not much wide in front of the near post, after 13 minutes. Three minutes later, Revell had Team Bury’s latest opportunity, as the winger got through on the right side of the box, but placed his shot straight at the March goalkeeper. The next piece of notable action, saw the game’s first yellow card on 22 minutes, as Chow received a booking for a foul just inside his own half, which he would later live to regret- after the referee took action on what probably was the fifth foul March had conceded at that point. Despite seeing Cook, and quite a few of his teammates fouled inside the first half an hour, Bury had another opportunity, eight minutes later, as Paton’s low cross from the right, but was hit too close to the ‘keeper at his near post.

Then on 33 minutes, Pepper fired his effort wide of Goulding’s left post, after finding himself just outside of the hosts’ penalty area. Two minutes later, Goulding had to be alert, as he claimed a ball squared across goal, from the right hand side, which was part of a March onslaught for the following ten or so minutes. With the visitors going narrowly close to taking the lead on 36 minutes, as a free-kick on the left, went just wide of the far post, which just evaded the desperate dive of Goulding- but luckily for the Bury ‘keeper did in fact go out for a goal-kick, before the visitors fired an effort wide just a minute later.

On 38 minutes, the watching Bury spectators had their hearts in their mouths for a moment or two, as McCourt lost possession outside his own area which, luckily for Bury, Jay Proctor was on hand to block the shot aimed towards goal, that had followed his teammate’s error. Despite this, March Town took the lead, just a minute later in dubious circumstances, as a volley from 25-yards out was turned into the net by a March forward- who looked to be in an offside position.

The chances did die down towards the end of the opening forty-five minutes, however, as the final chance of the half occurred on the stroke of halftime, as Cook cutted out a cross from the right at the expense of a corner, which resulted in Chow side footing over the bar at the back post. That was the last action for a fairly level first half, in which Bury felt hard done by to be trailing at the interval.

Half Time Score: Team Bury 0-1 March Town United

Second Half Report:
The second half began almost exactly where the first ended, with March on the attack, and doubling their lead on 50 minutes as the visitors found the net from close range. However, Bury had the following opportunity- just a minute later, as the home side fired an effort wide of the target. March went close again, though, as Matthews headed a cross, from the right, wide of the far post on 52 minutes. Despite that missed opportunity, March did extend their lead a minute afterwards, as the ball was squared across the box from the left, which was diverted into the net off the unfortunate Benham, for an own goal.

You would have expected March to have sat back and defended for the remained of the encounter, but it was to the contrary, as the visitors forced Goulding to hold on two efforts on goal with the space of a minute after 57 minutes had been played. There was to be a slight twist, however, as Chow received his marching orders, after committing a foul inside his own half- which the referee deemed was worthy of a second yellow card, therefore leaving his teammates to play with ten men with half an hour to go.

The sending off did not change the game much, though, as Goulding claimed a March effort from range, with 61 minutes gone. However, on 65 minutes, the scoreline was added to, as March won a penalty after Benham was adjudged to have blocked a March shot on goal with his hand, which was dispatched into the bottom left corner to make it 0-4. Four minutes later, Bury began to search for a consolation goal, as Selfe fired wide of the March goal, after which the visitors had a further two opportunities with; Goulding claiming another long range effort for the first (on 76 minutes), before the second saw the visitors fire an effort wide of Goulding’s goal (with 12 minutes to go).

Bury continued their hunt for a consolation though with ten minutes remaining, as a great cross-field ball from Benham found Revell through on the right, whose cross was blocked behind for a corner, where a Bury effort was fired straight at the ‘keeper. Which two minutes later, Bury went close once more, as a cross from the right found Selfe in the box, but unfortunately for Bury Selfe’s superb header was tipped just over the bar by the ‘keeper. Then, with three minutes to go, Bury saw appeals for a penalty waved away, as Last’s cross from the left seemingly hit the hand of a March defender. A minute later, March had their penultimate effort of the afternoon, as they had an effort blocked from outside the Bury penalty area, which led to a consolation goal for Team Bury, as Charlie Cook’s superb cross from the right found Robbie Dyson at the back post, who headed home into the bottom left corner with just a minute of normal time remaining.

You would have thought that would have been it, but there was still time for a stoppage time chance for March, as they saw a fierce effort from range deflected wide for a corner, which capped off what was a fairly entertaining game as the two sides shared five goals between them.

REPORT: Team Bury 3-3 Leiston Reserves

Thurlow Nunn League First Division, Tuesday 14th November 2017 Match Report © Drew Kendall 2017
Team Bury 3- 3 Leiston Reserves

Selfe 41’ Bloom 3’, Rutterford 17’, Cheetham 27’.
Moore 45’+1’pen,
Cook 89’,

First Half Report:
Team Bury come from 0-3 down after 27 minutes, to draw 3-3 with Leiston Reserves, as three quality strikes from Oli Selfe, Harry Moore (penalty) and Charlie Cook see Bury comeback to steal a well earned point.

As mentioned, the visitors raced out of the blocks, and scored on the third minute, as Bloom was found on the left side of the Bury penalty area before slotting home, into the bottom right corner- to give his side the lead. Five minutes later, Leiston could have added to their early tally, as Benham’s partial clearance fell to a Leiston player on the right side of the box, who hit his volleyed effort wide of the target. Leiston kept the pressure on their hosts, however as, with 14 minutes gone, Bloom went close to a second- as his effort from outside the area was curled over the bar.

It wasn’t long, though, until Leiston doubled their advantage as, on 17 minutes, Rutterford got on the end of a through ball, which caught the home defence out, who slotted his effort past the onrushing Goulding and into the bottom left corner to make it 0-2. Ten minutes later, Cheetham made it 3-0, as his teammate found him through on the left side of the box, who (exactly like Bloom) slotted into the bottom right corner to make it 0-3 to Leiston. Leiston pushed for a fourth goal, however, but failed to do so, as (with 14 minutes until half time) Leiston fired an effort over the Bury crossbar. Before, on 38 minutes, Last’s free kick for Bury was headed towards goal by a teammate, but was caught by the ‘keeper with Bury's, with the host's first real opportunity of the half, which Leiston responded to by firing wide from range straight down the other end.

A minute later, the home side went close again, as Bury saw an effort saved at the near post. That sparked Bury into gear, however on 41 minutes, as they pulled a goal back in sensational style- with Oli Selfe, getting his second Team Bury goal in as many games, lobbing the opposition from range to pull a goal back for his side. This then led to an incredible comeback from Bury, who won a penalty three minutes later, as Selfe was fouled in the box- which Harry Moore took and put in the left corner (despite the ‘keeper flapping at the ball as it beat him), to make it 2-3 in stoppage time in the first half.

Those late first half strikes saw Bury go back within a goal of pulling back level with their opposition at the interval, who were on top of proceedings at the start of the game.

Half Time Score: Team Bury 2-3 Leiston Reserves

Second Half Report:

Bury began the second half where they left off, with Cook going close on 49 minutes, as the Bury winger’s effort from the left side of the area being saved down to his right, by the Leiston shot-stopper. The game then became an end-to-end affair, with both sides looking for the next goal of the game, with their being no further chances of note until the 60th minute. It was at the point that Leiston had their first major chance of the second half, as a corner from the left had to be cleared off the line at the back post, before the visitors also saw two attempts on goal blocked by the Bury defence. This led to a corner to Leiston, who headed it wide at the back post. Three minutes later, Rutterford had another go at goal, but this time hit his effort straight at Goulding. Which, on 64 minutes, Leiston went close again, as a free-kick on the left was squared to Oxbrown, who fired his effort wide of the near post.

Three minutes after that, Leiston went close again, as another free-kick on the left was headed towards goal- at the back post- but was cleared off the line by Bury. However, Bury did have another chance of their own on 68 minutes, as Benham headed a corner over the bar. With Leiston closing close once more, four minutes later, as the visitor’s direct free-kick was blocked.

The next real chance of note fell to striker Selfe (with 80 minutes on the clock), who got through on the right side of the box, but unfortunately for Bury, volleyed his effort wide of the target. Leiston didn’t sit back, however, as they had two shots blocked just a minute later, before Rutterford had a goal from distance, but saw his strike superbly palmed behind for a corner by Goulding (down to his right)- which then saw Oxbrown’s 18-yard effort blocked. Leiston’s
firing an effort over the bar on 86 minutes.

Bury did their well deserved third and, most importantly, equalising goal on 89 minutes, as Oli Selfe blocked a Leiston clearance into the left side of the box, where the ball fell to Charlie Cook who found the roof of the net to cause absolute tremendous scenes of celebration.

Charlie Cook’s late equaliser saw Bury come from three goals down to draw 3-3 with a team placed in 6th position in the table, to move up a place to 19th, with the whole team being considered arguably as ‘Man Of The Match’ winners together, after a great team performance.

PREVIEW: Team Bury v Leiston Reserves

Team Bury vs Leiston Reserves- Preview- Thurlow Nunn League First Division-
Tuesday 14th November 2017- Kickoff 7:45pm- © Drew Kendall, 2017.

How do the two teams fare in their most recent five games in 2017/18?
Team Bury have lost four of their most recent five matches, seeing them lose 1-4 away to Swaffham Town, before losing 3-0 at Downham Town, with their last two matches, both of them at home, ending in a 1-6 loss to Whitton United, which their most recent defeat saw them fall to a 1-2 defeat to Kings Lynn Town Reserves. However, in the home side’s most recent home game they drew 2-2 with Norwich United Reserves, thanks to two quality strikes from Josh Revell and Oli Selfe, who both netted their maiden Team Bury goals, as they salvaged a point for their side in superb style.

Going into this game, Team Bury sit 20th in the league table, whilst Leiston Reserves sit in 6th.

Meanwhile, Leiston reserves have won 2, drew 2 and lost 1 of their last five matches. The first of these results saw them beat fellow Reserves side Needham Market 2-1 at home, before the young Blues travelled down to Little Oakley where the sides played out a goalless draw in their second of these five matches. Leiston did extend their unbeaten run though, to three games, as they thrashed Norwich United Reserves 5-0 at home, which did however end there, as they were defeated 2-0 by AFC Sudbury away from home. Leiston did recover from this setback, but not as they would have liked, as they drew 4-4 at Halstead Town.

Team Bury 2- 2 Norwich United Reserves
Revell 29’, Kutsarayi x2.
Selfe 84’.


First Half Report:

Team Bury and Norwich United Reserves play out an entertaining 2-2 draw, as neither team could snatch a winner, mirroring the senior teams’ meeting on Tuesday. The first opportunity fell to Norwich, with just a minute played, as the visitors fired an effort over the bar from range, who had the next chance three minutes later as a cross from the left is headed over the Bury crossbar at the near post.

Bury started to get in their rhythm, though on 10 minutes, as the home side go close, as Paton’s curled, from the edge of the box, is tipped over the bar, with the corner headed wide by a Bury player. A minute later, it was the visitors who were the next to go close, as they saw an effort blocked behind for a corner, which was then headed wide at the near post. Goulding was, later, called into action on 15 minutes, as he caught an effort from Norwich’s No.10 from 20 yards out. Paton did go close again, however, as he scuffed his effort wide from inside the box, with 17 minutes on the clock. Three minutes later, Goulding kept the visitors out three times in the space of sixty seconds, as he held onto a free-kick that was hit straight at him, before being forced into two great stops at his right post to keep the scores level.

Norwich did take the lead, though, on 27 minutes- as Kutsarayi gets past the defence, before slotting home past Goulding, from close range, and into the bottom right corner. Credit has to be given to Bury, who responded immediately to going a goal down, as Revell picked out the bottom right corner in superb style to level the scores up at 1-1, just two minutes after conceding. Bury went close again on 32 minutes, as Patons well hit strike from range, was well saved by the ‘keeper down to his right. Which, two minutes later, Bury went close once more, as Keylock fired just wide at the back post as Last’s cross from the left was not cleared by the visitors.

Bury finished the half strongly, as they saw another effort, on 40 minutes, hit straight at the visiting goalkeeper. However, it was Norwich who had the last opportunity of an entertaining first half, as they headed a corner on the left wide at the back post in stoppage time- to see the two sides go into the break, level with both sides having chances to go ahead at the interval.

Half Time Score: Team Bury 1-1 Norwich United Reserves

Second Half Report:

Bury started the second half eager to build on the first, as (on 47 minutes) Cook’s free-kick from the right was headed towards goal, forcing the Norwich ‘keeper to tip the ball just over the crossbar, at his back post. Bury went close once more, on 50 minutes, as the home side shot wide from 20-yards out. Norwich then began to get into the half, as they fired a shot wide, on 52 minutes, with the visitors going close just a minute later- as they saw an effort from range cannon off the left post and into Goulding’s gloves.

Norwich went down to ten men on 54 minutes, as Paton was fouled inside the visitors half, who also appeared to touch the neck of the Bury player, which the referee showed the visiting player a yellow card- before there was some arguments going on in the box after the same player touched another Bury player’s neck, who was given his marching orders by the referee. Two minutes later, Bury went close, from the resulting free-kick- as Moore’s diving header was palmed behind for a corner by the ‘keeper, who had dived to his right.

The resulting corner fell to Paton, whose headed effort was blocked just ahead of the goal line. Paton then had the next opportunity of this match, as he shot wide on 58 minutes, before one of his teammates fired just wide of the bottom left corner, from outside the area- just three minutes later. However, on 62 minutes, the visitors went close again, as Norwich curled an effort just wide of Goulding’s right post. Which, Norwich made their next opportunity count, as they retook the lead on 65 minutes, as Last’s free-kick was cleared, which led to a Norwich player running the entire length of the pitch, before slotting home into the bottom corner- to make it 2-1 to the visitors.

Three minutes later, Goulding was forced into his first major involvement in the second half, as the Bury shot-stopper gathered a Norwich effort. Norwich then began to hunt for a third goal, as they shot wide on 73 minutes. However, Bury took back control of possession, which resulted in Keylock seeing his strike deflected into the goalkeeper’s gloves- with 10 minutes of action remaining. Norwich did though have the next chance seconds later, albeit their penultimate major opportunities of the match, as they fired an effort wide from outside the box.

Three minutes later, Last had Bury’s latest chance, as he fired his free-kick over the bar. Bury did equalise, however, on 84 minutes, as Selfe rifled his volley comfortably past the Norwich goalkeeper, and into the net from edge of the box to win his side a share of the spoils, which Bury very much deserved. Selfe could’ve won his side all three points, though, just three minutes later, as the substitute headed just over from a cross on the left, after seeing his side have an effort saved. Norwich then had their final chance of the game on 89 minutes, as they fired a strike over the bar. With Bury going close once again, two minutes into added time, as Selfe’s effort was deflected over the bar for a corner, which was headed just wide at the back post by a Bury player.

That concluded a thoroughly entertaining match, where Bury earned a share of the spoils, but could have sealed all three late on, but will be happy to come away from the game with a much needed point.

How do the two teams fare in their most recent five games in 2017/18?
Team Bury have lost all five of their most recent five matches, seeing them lose 1-2 at home to Braintree Town Reserves, then 1-4 away to Swaffham Town, before losing 3-0 at Downham Town, with their last two matches, both of them at home, ending in a 1-6 loss to Whitton United and a slender 1-2 defeat to Kings Lynn Town Reserves.

Going into this game, Team Bury sit 20th in the league table, whilst Norwich United Reserves sit in 14th.

Despite the contrasts in fortunes in league position, this is not directly showing in the two club’s last five results, as the visitors have only won one of their last five games themselves, having been smashed by Woodbridge Town 6-0 at home, they travelled to Norwich CBS where they lost by two goals to nil, before returning home to beat Debenham LC 2-1, with their last two matches seeing them lose 5-0 to Leiston Reserves away, and 8-1 at Swaffham Town.

Previous encounter

REPORT: Team Bury 1-2 Kings Lynn Town Reserves

Thurlow Nunn League First Division, Saturday 4th November 2017 Match Report
© Drew Kendall, 2017
Team Bury 1- 2 Kings Lynn Town Reserves
Keylock 63’; Allen 78’.

First Half Report:
Team Bury end up on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline, in a game where the home side deserved at least a point. The first opportunity, of this tightly fought encounter, fell to the home side- as Last fired his free-kick straight at the ‘keeper on the second minute. The visitors responded though, as they went straight down the other end, as Goulding is forced into making a comfortable save down to his right after a strike from the right side of the box. The visitors then started to control possession, which saw Bury defend resolutely for the whole of the half, as Kings Lynn had the best chance of the half- which saw a squared ball from the right into the six yard box skied over the crossbar on four minutes. A minute later, Wright took a free-kick for the home side from range, but his effort was claimed by the ‘keeper, before the visitors then had a shot blocked from inside the box.

Then on ten minutes, the visitors, however, were starting to find a bit of joy down the hosts’ left wing, as they cross the ball in from the right wing, forcing Goulding into a comfortable save, down to his right, from close range. Which 7 minutes later, the visitors went close twice in quick succession, with the first seeing them have a shot blocked from 18-yards out, before firing the rebound wide of Bury’s right post, with the second opportunity seeing them head, a cross from the right, wide at the back post. The visitors continued to keep the pressure on, to which Bury responded superbly to, as they restricted their opposition to only having long range shots, including on 23 minutes when Kings Lynn fired an effort wide of the bottom right corner.

Three minutes later, Bury had an opportunity of their own, as Paton’s free-kick on the left was headed wide by Proctor at the far post, who got straight into position, to head clear a Kings Lynn cross, as himself and Benham defended superbly- thwarting the opposition on numerous occasions. Kings Lynn did keep probing however, as (on 36 minutes) a through ball on the left, was headed across goal which Goulding gathered on his line. Two minutes later, Bury had their best chance of the first half, as Moore and Keylock linked up brilliantly down the left, which saw Keylock cross into the box from the right, which was just behind Selfe who attempted an overhead kick, but the forward couldn’t quite reach the ball.

Then, as the first half came to a close, the visitors ended the half by having the last opportunity of the opening 45 minutes, as they saw a shot blocked with two minutes of stoppage time played.

That action concluded a tight 45 minutes, where Bury’s strong defensive display frustrated their opposition.

Half Time Score: Team Bury 0-0 Kings Lynn Town Reserves

Second Half Report:
The first major action of the second half saw Selfe go off injured on 52 minutes, after being on the receiving end of a dangerous, two-footed, sliding challenge, which saw Edge only receive a yellow card, much to the frustration of the home support. Which, despite the fact that Bury were briefly down to ten men, as they waited to bring Cook on for Selfe, they took the lead on 63 minutes, as a free-kick found Moore at the back post, who headed an effort on goal- which the ‘keeper parried out to Keylock who tapped home to give Bury the lead. Four minutes later, Goulding was called into action once more, as he made a great save as he palmed a curled shot, from the edge of the box, behind for a corner.

The goal certainly sparked Kings Lynn into action, as with 70 minutes played, as they fired an effort over the bar, in between both sides curling and firing a shot each over the bar in on 71 minutes, which leads to four the visitors having an effort cleared off the line from close range, before seeing the rebound effort blocked by the Bury defence, three minutes later. Proctor then made an important clearance as he cleared another effort off the line, in order to preserve his side’s lead, on 76 minutes.

However, despite all of Bury’s good defensive work, the visitors did find an equaliser on 78 minutes, as Allen slotted his effort into the bottom right corner from close range. That equaliser then lead to an avalanche of pressure on the home side’s goal, as with 6 minutes to go, Goulding is forced into a superb save to keep the score level at 1-1, before having to keep out a headed effort on 88 minutes.

The visitors kept control of possession for the majority of the closing stages, which they made count, as a cross from the left was chested down at the back post, where a volley effort was blocked on 90 minutes, before the visitors then stole the three points a minute later, as they found the net with a minute of added time remaining.

That late goal, saw Kings Lynn take the points in a match that Team Bury can hold their heads high after their strong performance, but will feel frustrated not to get a point out the game.

How do the two teams fare in their most recent five games in 2017/18?
Team Bury have won 2 of their last 5 matches, with both victories coming in the first 2 of these 5 matches as Bury beat Halstead Town away 2-1, and beat Braintree Town Reserves 2-1 at home. Bury have, however, lost their last 3 matches, as the Blues lost 4-1 at Swaffham Town, 3-0 at Downham Town (after three weeks without a fixture), with their last outing seeing them defeated 6-1 by Whitton United in what was their first home match in a month. 
Both teams have had contrasting seasons so far, with the hosts sitting in 19th position in the league table with 9 points to their name, whilst the visitors for this match sit in 2nd place, with 31 points.

REPORT: Team Bury 1-6 Whitton United

Thurlow Nunn League First Division, Tuesday 31st Octobee 2017 Match Report
© Drew Kendall, 2017

Team Bury 1-6 Whitton United
Gillies 6, Young x2, Mallardo 25’,


First Half Report:
Bury end their first home game since September in defeat, as Whitton United come from 1-0 down to beat a Young looking Blues’ side 1-6 at Ram Meadow.

Both sides started the opening 20 minutes with entertaining football, which began with Last preventing Whitton from getting a shot on goal twice inside 3 minutes, with Cook (who was superb all over the pitch) playing superbly well, as his first major contribution saw him clear his lines, before the visitors had an effort blocked. The visitors went close again a minute later, as their free-kick from 20-yards out went over Goulding's top right corner, with the visitors then firing a strike wide of Bury’s right-hand post from outside the box with 5 minutes played.

However, a minute later, Bury took the lead with their first shot of the game, as Barney Gillies opened the scoring after brilliantly picking out the bottom left corner from the right byline to give the home side an early lead. Whitton responded well, on 8 minutes, as the visitors saw a cross caught at the near post, just in front of the goal-line by Goulding in the Bury goal. The visitors continued to press for an equaliser, as they curled an effort over the hosts’ top right corner, after 11 minutes of non stop action. Four minutes later, it was Bury’s turn to have an opportunity to score, as the Blues saw a curled effort narrowly go over the top left corner of the visitor’s goal.

Bury then had Charlie Cook to thank on 16 minutes, as the young winger showed great determination to make a last ditch sliding tackle, in order to prevent Whitton from getting a cross into the box, conceding a corner in the process, which was dangerously sent curling across the six yard box and out for a goal-kick, much to the relief of the home defence. Cook then showed of his attacking exploits (3 minutes later), as his corner into the near post forced the visiting ‘keeper to punch away under pressure from the opposition around him, which led to a free-kick being awarded to the visitors.

On 21 minutes, Cook was instrumental again, as the winger won his side a corner, before thwarting the opposition once more, two minutes later. However, Whitton did eventually equalise on 25 minutes, as Mallardo arrowed a tremendous strike into the bottom right corner, leaving Goulding rooted on the spot. Whitton then took the lead on 38 minutes, as a free-kick from the right was headed into the net at the back post, to make it 1-2 in Whitton’s favour. Which fired up the visitors, as they searched for more goals, as they fired a shot over the bar from outside the box, three minutes later. Whitton took full control of possession for the remainder of the first half, as Last had to prevent Whitton from getting through the Bury defence on 43 minutes, before a cutback from the left narrowly evaded Young at the back post, for the visitors, with the visitors firing the rebound wide a minute later.

Whitton did, though, make these extra chances count, as they extended their lead on the stroke of half-time, as a free-kick from the left was headed home at the near post to give the visitors a two goal lead at the break. Bury went into the break feeling proud of their efforts, as there wasn’t much they could’ve done about the goals they conceded.


Half Time Score: Team Bury 1-3 Whitton United.

Second Half Report:
Whitton started the second half on the attack, as they blasted an effort over the bar from range, on 47 minutes. Bury then had their first opportunity of the second half, four minutes later, as Selfe lifted a ball into the box from the right, but was unfortunately claimed by Whitton’s goalkeeper, with the Blues then blocking a Whitton effort on goal from the right side of the box, just sixty seconds later. Whitton went close once more, on 54 minutes, as the visitor’s fired a shot wide of the left post of the Bury goal.

Three minutes later, it could have been 1-4 to Whitton, but Goulding was relieved it wasn’t, as his mistimed clearance gave the ball away to Whitton on the right wing, but fortunately for the Bury goalkeeper, the ball was squared across the face of goal, where a Bury defender easily intercepted it. Despite missing that golden opportunity, the visitors did indeed make it 1-4 on 64 minutes, as a free-kick was awarded (a minute earlier) for handball directly outside the box, which Young curled past the wall and into the bottom left corner.

Bury didn’t give up, however, as (on 69 minutes) Selfe saw his shot blocked, with his teammate firing the rebound wide from 18-yards out. Unfortunately though for Bury, it was Whitton who added to the scoreline, as they made it 1-5 with 15 minutes remaining, as a great reaction stop from Goulding led to a corner to the visitors, who turned the ball home from close range- following the set piece. Regardless of the deficit Bury continued to push for a second goal, as Last hit his free-kick, from 20-yards, out straight at the visiting ‘keeper- with 80 minutes on the clock. A minute later though, Bury were unfortunate not to make it 2-5, as Selfe’s powerful strike from outside the box, was well saved by Whitton’s goalkeeper down to his right with the ‘keeper also keeping out the rebounded effort from Bury.

However, it was Whitton who were the next to go close, to adding to their tally for the night, as, they fired a strike at the Bury goal, which was denied by the crossbar- on 82 minutes. Whitton did round off the scoring a minute later, however, as they found the back of the Bury net from close range to make it 1-6 in the visitor’s favour, before Goulding gathered a Whitton shot on goal (six minutes later), with the penultimate opportunity of a action packed match seeing a thunderous volley from the visitors go just wide from the edge of the Bury penalty area, with three minutes remaining. The visitors were also the last team to have a shot at goal, as they fired a shot over the crossbar with 88 minutes played.

That concluded a highly entertaining match, as Team Bury returned to action at Ram Meadow with a 1-6 defeat, as Whitton take the points after dominating the majority of the second half.

PREVIEW: Team Bury v Whitton United

Team Bury v Whitton United- Preview- Thurlow Nunn League First Division- Tuesday 31th October 2017- Kickoff 19:45

How do the two teams fare in their most recent six games in 2017/18?
Team Bury have won 3 and lost 2 of their last 6 matches. The first of the five saw the Blues lose 6-0 at home to Norwich CBS, which saw Thomas sent off. Team Bury did break their losing streak, however, as they won their next two matches starting with a 3-1 home victory over Needham Market Reserves (thanks to a brilliant Benham header, a quality strike from Robinson and and a poacher’s finish from Tuwizana) and unfortunately for the Blues ending with a 2-1 away win at Halstead Town (which saw Paton and Westcott score for the Blues). Then in their third game before this match, they ended up on the losing side of a tight 2-1 defeat at home to Braintree Town Reserves, despite Tuwizana heading home Wigley’s freekick to give them the lead. Team Bury were supposed to play Ransomes Sports before this match, but it was cancelled as Ransomes withdrew from the Suffolk Senior Cup, giving Team Bury a walkover win to the next round, however they did return to action at Swaffham Town in the League, where the hosts ran out 4-1 winners. In their most recent outing, the Blues visited Downham Town where the visitors lost 3-0.

The two sides are separated by a single position in the league table, as Whitton United sit 4th in the table who have 27 points to their name, whilst Team Bury currently 19th in the table with 9 points to their name.

Tonight’s visitors, Whitton United, have won 2 and lost 3 of their last 5 matches.

Swaffham Town 4-1 Team Bury

Pearson 23’, Keylock 43’,
Woodcock 53’, 62’,
Champion 84’.

First Half Report:
Team Bury concede three goals in the second half, which saw them fall to defeat against a very attacking Swaffham side, despite a positive start to the match. The hosts started on the front foot, which the visitors coped with superbly. The pressure was on from the first minute as Goulding caught a shot, that was hit straight at him from close range, before the visiting ‘keeper was called into action again two minutes later, as he claimed a long ball downfield after the hosts’ had a cross from the right wing cleared.

The next opportunity came with 5 minutes played, as Goulding gathered a scuffed shot hit from the edge of the box.

Swaffham’s relentless and continuous probing was matched by a strong defensive response, as a cross from the left was palmed behind for a corner by Goulding at his near post, before Moore was forced to clear a header off the line- that was heading towards the far corner from the far post, with the rebound fired wide, with 7 minutes on the clock. Bury did create chances of their own on 10 minutes, however, as a free-kick from inside the centre circle was headed wide by Moore at the far post. Both sides then went on to have a chance each, 3 minutes later, as the hosts’ free-kick from range on the right went out for a goal-kick, whilst the visitors’ long ball towards Tuwizana had to be palmed away by the keeper just inside his 18-yard box- but couldn’t take advantage as the rebound was fired wide.

The next opportunity came on 16 minutes, as the visitors tried to unlock the Blues’ defence with an attempted defence splitting pass was overhit, ending up in Goulding’s welcoming gloves.

The hosts kept the pressure on, a minute later, as a volley from 20-yards out was fired wide of Goulding’s left post. Swaffham’s next chance came on 18 minutes, as they saw a weak rebound shot blocked after the hosts had a cross blocked. Three minutes later, Swaffham saw another corner palmed away by Goulding at his near post, before shooting wide of the Bury goal. Swaffham did eventually make their pressure count, as a free-kick on the right was headed past Goulding and into the bottom right corner by Pearson, to give the hosts the advantage- despite Bury’s determined defensive display. Swaffham then had two chances to make it 2-0 on 24 minutes, with the first resulting in Goulding coming out of his area to clear a long ball down on the left wing out for a throw-in, with the hosts’ seeing a shot blocked with the second.

Two minutes later, Goulding was called into action once again, as he kept out a shot from the edge of the box down to his right. Bury then started to get a foothold back into the game, as the Blues’ saw a corner cleared on 28 minutes. Two minutes later, however, Swaffham hit a cross from the right over the bar for a goal-kick to the visitors. Bury got straight back on the attack on 32 minutes, as a freekick from the left just goes past a Bury player at the far post.

Two minutes later, Bury went close again as, Paton’s shot from distance went just over the top right corner, before the Blues saw a free-kick on the left headed away to safety a minute later. Swaffham did have a mini-chance of their own in response, though, as Goulding caught the hosts’ cross from the left with 36 minutes gone.

Bury’s search for an equaliser continued on 39 minutes, as Proctor headed Bowyer’s corner on the left, wide of the target at the far post. The hosts were restricted to half chances towards the end of the half, as a Swaffham cross from the right was claimed by Goulding- with five minutes of the first half to go.

Bowyer was instrumental for Bury, down the left, as he won his side a corner after getting through, on 41 minutes. The resulting corner, which was taken a minute later by Bowyer, fell to Keylock on the edge of the penalty area- who found Tuwizana through on goal, only to hit his strike straight at the ‘keeper. Bury won the ball instantly, however, as Paton won a corner after his cross was blocked out on the right. It was from this corner that Bury equalized on 43 minutes, as the corner found Keylock at the back post who half-volleyed the cross through a crowd of bodies and into the bottom left corner of the hosts’ goal.

Swaffham then reacted quickly to going behind, as a free-kick on the right was headed across goal at the back post, before going wide with 44 minutes on the clock. The hosts tried again a minute later, as a ball squared from the left into the box had to be cleared after being deflected towards goal. Bury were then forced into some great defending, as Revell’s pressure and Proctor’s ability to read the game allowed the Bury centre-back to dispossess the hosts. That was the last action of what was an entertaining opening 45 minutes, as the two sides went in level at the break.

Half Time Score: Swaffham Town 1-1 Team Bury

Second Half Report:
The second half started just like the first, as Goulding was forced into a great diving save towards the top right corner from a shot from range, just sixty seconds into the second half. Then, with 47 minutes played the visitors saw a shot at the far post, after a corner on the left, blocked on the line by a Bury defender before the rebound was fired wide of the target. Bury responded, though, as a Last free-kick inside his own half won his side a corner- two minutes later. Bowyer’s corner fell to Revell from at least 20-yards out, who fired wide of the bottom right corner of the hosts’ goal.

Swaffham, then went straight back on the attack, as Goulding gathered a free-kick from just inside the Blues’ half. Swaffham did take the lead, however, with their next opportunity, as Goulding was forced to palm away Vincent’s squared pass at the right byline (across the six-yard box) where Woodcock was on hand to tap home at the back post from barely two yards out with 53 minutes on the clock.

Bury were determined to equalise, despite this setback, when a Bury free-kick (two minutes later) inside their own half went straight through to the Swaffham goalkeeper. Before Revell tried to release Paton through on the right, but his pass was overhit and went out for a goal-kick. Bury wouldn’t give up without a fight, as

Paton found Keylock through on goal, on 56 minutes, only for the Bury player to be ruled offside. Swaffham then had the next chance, with the first coming with 59 minutes gone, as they saw a shot from the edge of the box hit straight at Goulding in the visitor’s goal. The Blues then went straight down the other end, a minute later, as a free-kick from the visitors was headed away before the resulting pass ending up in the goalkeeper’s gloves.

Swaffham made Bury rue their missed chances, with 62 minutes played, however- as Woodcock’s shot from close range at the left sideline went into the Bury net off the underside side of the crossbar to make it 3-1 to Swaffham. Bury did have an opportunity (a minute later) to pull a goal back, though, as Bowyer saw his cross claimed by the ‘keeper.

The next opportunity of an entertaining game fell to Swaffham on 69 minutes, as a shot from distance out on the left was hacked wide of the Blues’ goal. Two minutes later, Swaffham won a corner after an attempt on goal from the left sideline was deflected behind for a corner, which resulted in a shot hit wide at the far post. There were hearts in Bury mouths on 74 minutes, as Swaffham fired wide of the target after some pinball in the Bury box, although these nerves were comforted further by fact that the linesman’s flag was up for offside.

Bury substitute Cook came on and tried to make an impact, as his great pass down the left wing towards Tuwizana won Bury a throw-in, which led to a cross from Keylock being cleared with ten minutes of the game remaining. A minute later, the hosts went back on the attack, as their striker got through to the edge of the box only to shoot wide of the bottom right corner of the Bury goal.

The hosts then concluded the goalscoring on 84 minutes, as Champion’s volley from 18-yards from goal found the top right corner of the Bury net, via the crossbar.

Bury had two chances in response, though despite the three goal deficit, as Tuwizana’s shot from close range was blocked on the left on 85 minutes, with the second (three minutes later) seeing the Blues almost get the Bury striker through on goal, but almost scored through an own goal as a Swaffham defender cleared just over his own crossbar.

The resulting corner, on the left, found its way to Westcott at the back post, whose strike which was heading for the left corner of the hosts’ goal was palmed behind for a Bury corner. The hosts then searched for their fifth goal, as a shot from the left wing had to be tipped over the bar superbly by Goulding for a corner to Swaffham on the right, which Bury managed to clear with a minute of normal time remaining.

The action did not disappoint even in added time, as Goulding claimed a Swaffham cross from the right, on 90 minutes- with Gillies’ cross from the right going straight into the ‘keeper’s welcoming hands down the other end a minute later. Goulding was called into action once more, with three minutes of stoppage time played, as he denied a shot from the left side of the box- although he wasn’t to know that the Swaffham player was offside.

That was to be the last chance in an end-to-end game, which saw Bury lose by three goals on a night where they played well and made their opponents fight for the three points.

PREVIEW: Swaffham Town v Team Bury

 Swaffham Town v Team Bury- Preview- Thurlow Nunn League First Division- Tuesday 10th October 2017- Kickoff 19:45

How do the two teams fare in their most recent five games in 2017/18?
Swaffham Town have won 1, drew 3 and lost 1 of their last 5 matches, which include: a 1-6 FA Vase win away at Stewarts and Lloyds, before losing 4-5 at home after Extra Time against Rushden and Higham United in the same competition. Swaffham then returned to league action, as they welcomed Norwich United Reserves to Shoemakers Lane (their most recent home game before this match) where they drew 2-2, with the fourth of these matches seeing them held to a 3-3 draw at Cornard United. Then, in their last match before this one, Swaffham drew 1-1 away to March Town United thanks to a Blackford goal despite Duarte being shown a straight red card for Swaffham.

Meanwhile, Team Bury have won 2 and lost 3 of their last 5 matches. The first of the five saw the Blues lose 3-2 at Holland FC, before a 6-0 home defeat at the hands of Norwich CBS, which saw Thomas sent off. Team Bury did break their losing streak, however, as they won their next two matches starting with a 3-1 home victory over Needham Market Reserves (thanks to a brilliant Benham header, a quality strike from Robinson and and a poacher’s finish from Tuwizana) and unfortunately for the Blues ending with a 2-1 away win at Halstead Town (which saw Paton and Westcott score for the Blues). Then in their last game before this match, they ended up on the losing side of a tight 2-1 defeat at home to Braintree Town Reserves, despite Tuwizana heading home Wigley’s freekick to give them the lead. Team Bury were supposed to play Ransomes Sports before this match, but it was cancelled as Ransomes withdrew from the Suffolk Senior Cup, giving Team Bury a walkover win to the next round.

The two sides are separated by 8 places in the league table, as Swaffham Town sit 11th in the table who have 16 points to their name, whilst Team Bury currently 19th in the table with 9 points to their name.

PREVIEW: Team Bury v Ransomes Sports

 Team Bury vs Ransomes Sports- Preview- Suffolk Senior Cup- Saturday 7th October 2017- Kickoff 3pm

How do the two teams fare in their most recent five games in 2017/18?
Team Bury have won 2 and lost 3 of their last 5 matches. The first of the five saw the Blues lose 3-2 at Holland FC, before a 6-0 home defeat at the hands of Norwich CBS, which saw Thomas sent off. Team Bury did break their losing streak, however, as they won their next two matches starting with a 3-1 home victory over Needham Market Reserves (thanks to a brilliant Benham header, a quality strike from Robinson and and a poacher’s finish from Tuwizana) and unfortunately for the Blues ending with a 2-1 away win at Halstead Town (which saw Paton and Westcott score for the Blues). Then in their last game before this match, they ended up on the losing side of a tight 2-1 defeat at home to Braintree Town Reserves, despite Tuwizana heading home Wigley’s freekick to give them the lead.
Meanwhile, Ransomes Sports have not had the greatest start to the season, having lost all of their last 5 games, with the first of these games seeing Ransomes being held to ransom as they lost 9-1 at Haughley United. Ransomes then had their second best result all season, as they lost 1-3 at home to Wenhaston United, before going back to the harsh reality of being torn to shreds as they lost 11-2 at Henley Athletic. Ransomes then returned to home action, but couldn’t make home advantage count as they lost 9-1, before losing 12-0 at Coplestonians. 
The two sides are separated by a division in the football pyramid, with Team Bury currently 18th in the Thurlow Nunn First Division with 9 points to their name after 3 wins out of 12 games, whilst Ransomes Sports sit in bottom place (16th) in the Touchline Ipswich & Suffolk League Senior Division who only have a single point from 6 league matches. Therefore making this match a big game for both sides, since both will be determined to get back to winning ways and go further in a cup competition.

REPORT: Team Bury 1-2 Braintree Town Reserves

Thurlow Nunn League First Division, Saturday 30th September 2017 Match Report
Team Bury 1-2 Braintree Town Reserves
Tuwizana 49’;    J.Jones 68’, 90’+5’pen.
First Half Report:
Team Bury lose an highly entertaining match, despite a great performance, after a late penalty settled what looked to be a point each for both sides. 
Both teams started the game well, but it was Braintree who had the game’s first chance, as Dallinger saw his shot blocked from the edge of the box with 4 minutes on the clock. A minute later, the visitors went close again after Cleal squares the ball into the box from the right, Jones’ shot was well kept out by Sharplin in the Bury goal from a few yards out. Bury were the next side to go close, as Robinson found Wigley, who curled his strike over the top right corner of the visitor’s goal with 8 minutes played. Braintree then had another opportunity seconds later, as they fired a strike over the bar from inside Bury’s penalty area, before the visitors saw another shot go wide of the Bury goal 3 minutes later. 
Wigley continued to test the Braintree goal on 14 minutes, as he curled his effort from 18-yards over the crossbar, before Hall made another great tackle 4 minutes later as the defender slid in to clear the ball away as Braintree looked to get a shot at goal from inside the Bury box. The next chance fell to the visitors, however, as a shot from the edge of the box is hit over the hosts’ crossbar with 22 minutes played. Braintree also had a chance to open the scoring, as a cross from the net was hit into the side netting by Dallinger at the far post. Despite all this pressure Bury had two chances of their own, as the first saw Bowyer square a great ball across the face of goal from the right wing which unfortunately for Bury, none of his teammates couldn’t find the net as the visitors had Seal to thank for clearing Bowyer’s cross. The second of these chances came seconds later, as an off-balanced Tuwizana hit his strike wide of the right post from the edge of the penalty area. 
The visitors then thought that they had opened the scoring with 26 minutes on the clock, as Sharplin fumbled a strike from the edge of box by Jones with Cleal’s rebound finding the back of the Bury net, only to be ruled out for offside. Braintree then went close again 4 minutes later, as Sharplin saved Cleal’s strike down to his left, before being alert to gather the rebound at the feet of an attacker. Team Bury were determined to keep going, as they went close on 36 minutes, as Revell has a shot at goal from 18-yards which was saved comfortably by the Braintree goalkeeper down to his left. 
Bury had another chance just 3 minutes later, as they saw a shot blocked, before the visitors saw another goal ruled out for a foul adjudged to have been Cleal (who was the player who netted for Braintree) on Sharplin with 40 minutes played in a first half that was relentless in terms of action. There was still one more chance to come in the first half, as Wigley’s free-kick from the right edge of the box is parried away from the ‘keeper, which was curling towards the top right corner. 
That was to be the last chance of an extremely entertaining first half, which saw both sides go into the break level, with both sides going close to taking the lead.
Half Time Score: Team Bury 0-0 Braintree Town Reserves
Second Half Report:
The second half was almost identical to the first, which saw the sides share 3 goals in front of an attendance of 49 people. Both sides started the second half brightly, which saw Bury go close a minute after the restart, as the hosts saw a shot go over the bar from the edge of the box. That kicked started 2 further chances with the first seeing Braintree go close on 48 minutes, after beating the Bury defence before Evison lifted a chipped effort just over the bar. That missed chance only made Bury more determined to open the scoring, as Tuwizana headed home Wigley’s free-kick from the left into the top right corner despite a hand from the Braintree ‘keeper, just a minute after that previously mentioned Braintree opportunity. 
On 57 minutes, Cleal was adjusted to have fouled Sharplin, who was booked as the Bury goalkeeper required treatment. Bury then had the next chance, with 63 minutes played, as Bowyer found Wigley on the edge of the penalty area who saw his shot blocked. Braintree made amends for their earlier missed chance just 5 minutes later, however, as Jones volleyed a well struck strike into the bottom left corner.
The impressive Wigley then continued to be instrumental for Bury, as he found Gillies on the left inside the box, but the Bury substitute hit his shot into the side netting with 20 minutes to play. The Bury midfielder then had a shot of his own a minute later, as his shot 20-yards from goal curled over the Braintree crossbar. It was Wigley’s free-kick that led to the next opportunity, as his cross from the right was headed away as far as Tuwizana, who saw his strike blocked from 18-yards out with 74 minutes played. The visitors saw a shot of their own blocked, as a Jones volley hit towards goal was stopped by a Bury defender before Dallinger’s rebound effort was blocked, with 80 minutes on the clock. Bury then went down the other end a minute later, as Wigley’s attempt was saved by the Braintree shot-stopper down to his right, from just outside the visitor’s penalty area. Braintree then had a penalty appeal turned down, as a Bury centre-back had allegedly handled the ball. However, Bury were made to regret their missed chances, as Gillies conceded a controversial penalty late on after a foul on Webb in his own penalty area, which was placed into the bottom left corner by Joe Jones who scored his second to fire Braintree to victory. 
That was to be the last opportunity of note in a game that ended in the visitors taking the points in a closely contested 90 minutes of action, which also saw Braintree’s assistant manager sent to the stands late on due to the intense finish to an action packed match with 8 yellow cards shared  between the two teams.
