Bury Town win pulsating local derby

By Chris Ward

Blues stage late come back to defeat AFC Sudbury on Easter Monday

Bury Town defeated local rivals AFC Sudbury by 4 goals to 3 on Easter Monday in a pulsating local derby at the Kings Marsh Stadium that was fine entertainment for the 564 in attendance.

Bury were in full control for the first 45 minutes and lead 2-0 at the break thanks to goals from Emmanuel Machaya and Tanner Call, and in truth the game should have been over as a contest.

But Sudbury were awarded 2 penalties in the early stages of the second half, both converted by Paul Hayes and this knocked the stuffing out of the visitors and when Tyler French headed Sudbury ahead, it looked to be over the Blues.

However, the never say die spirit of Ben Chenery's side shone through and after 86 minutes Ollie Hughes headed Bury level, and they pressed the home side until the 92nd minute when Jake Chambers Shaw won the game much to the delight of the travelling fans.

Full report to follow in due course.
