Match report | Preview
Bury come from two goals down to make it to the next round of the FA Trophy

Bury Town made it through to the next round of the FA Trophy after a disastrous start. With only 3 minutes on the clock Alfie Paxman fired Ramsgate in to the lead from close range. On 9 minutes Cemal Ramadan broke down the wing for Bury and on into the box but his shot was blocked by the defence. Ramadan broke down the opposite wing on 13 minutes and put a great pass in to the danger area but Luke Watkins got down quick to save the low strike. David Cooper put a throw over the defence for Ollie Canfer in the box but the keeper made another good save. A clever throw in from David Cooper on 22 minutes found Ollie Canfer in the box. Canfer shot low but Watkins was down quick to save. A quick break forward on 26 minutes for Ramsgate caught Bury out and with Bury keeper Luis Tibbles way off his line Tom Chapman fired Ramsgate in to a two goal lead. Bury were determined to get back in the game and attacked at every opportunity. On 32 minutes Noel Aitkens went on a typical run down the wing and put in the perfect cross for Bradley Barber and Cemal Ramadan but both missed the chance. A pacey attack from Bury saw them pull a gaol back on 34 minutes. Barber picked up the ball in midfield and set up Aitkens who unselfishly put in for Ramadan, rushing in at the far post to slip the ball in the back of the net off the post. 4 minutes later Bury pulled level. Joe White pushing forward and his cross only being cleared as far as Ryan Jolland who fired past the stretching keeper. Paxman had a chance for Ramsgate just before the break when his hit a powerful free kick just wide of the far post.

Half Time: Ramsgate 2 Bury Town 2

Defences went missing in the second half and the goals were plentiful. Some of Bury’s play second half was exceptional with Cemal Ramadan the leading light. On 49 minutes Aitkens was in on the wing and his cross found Ramadan in on goal at the back of the box bit he put his shot high over the bar. At the other end Tibbles quick reaction save blocked Rory Smith’s piledriver from close range with his feet. A defensive error from Bury on 61 minutes let Ramsgate in for an opportunity and a cool as you like strike from Paxman restored the lead for the home side. Bury were not done and smelt the win as they attacked harder than ever and on 68 minutes Noel Aitken’s thumping strike hit the chest of the keeper and fell kindly for Ramadan following up and he was never going to miss. Bury were level again and were shown no signs of letting up. On 70 minutes, Aitkens coming in from the left wing worked the ball in to the box and smashed his shot past the keeper and in to the top of the net. Bury were in front for the first time in the game and still not done. A simply stunning move from Ramadan got himself free in the box and he hit the sweetest strike in to the top corner for his sensational hat trick. An entertaining game continued to the final whistle. Bury took the win but Ramsgate were in the game throughout but some clinical finishing from Bury won the tie and sent the Blues though to the next round against Chalfont St Peter at Ram Meadow in three weeks time.
