After a slow start Bury Town came back to deservedly claim an Alan Boon Cup semi-final place with two second half goals from John Sands.
The home side started well, but despite having more of the play they rarely looked like breaking down the Bury defence.
Bury then fought back, and with Billy Clark looking dangerous down the left, began to dictate play.
John Kennedy had a fine volley from the edge of the box well saved and Clark fired high and wide from a good position, whilst at the other end a low cross by Tamer Tuna failed to find a colleague.
Bury continued to have the bulk of possession and only a fine block by keeper Matt Armstrong-Ford denied Kieran Leabon. John Sands then fired over when well placed.

The same pattern was established at the start of the second half with Bury well on top but unable to break the deadlock as Sam Nunn had a header well saved and Lee Smith headed wide from a Lee Reed corner.
Bury finally took a deserved lead after 67 minutes. Leabon forced his way into the box and found John Sands who turned to fire low inside the near post.
Little was seen of the Hastings attack as Bury continued to dominate and Clark came close to doubling the lead when his shot was tipped onto the post by the keeper on 77minutes. In the next minute Bury did score a second when a long ball deceived the home defence and Sands ran on to fire past Armstrongâ€“Ford.
Hasting fought back in the final minutes but their best effort was cleared off the line by Conner Hall as Bury eased into the semi final.
