Bury: Club Profile
After first meeting the Shakers during the 2010-1 League Two campaign, we went up with them into League One that same season; them automatically and us via the playoffs. If its fun facts you want, our 2-0 defeat at theirs in March 2013 was Gary Smith’s last match in charge as Boro’ boss.

Travel Information – Distance: 199 miles
The furthest route in distance, but usually the fastest in time; head north on the A1 all the way for many miles until you reach the M62. Take the westbound M62 towards Leeds and Manchester. You'll be on here for more than 37 miles; until you reach Junction 18 in fact.
Here, take the exit for the Bury-bound M66. After only two-and-a-half miles, however, you'll be leaving the motorway at Junction 2 (A58). Take the second exit on the roundabout; the first being for a hotel. Continue on for around half a mile, before making a left turn onto the B6219.
Go straight over the next two roundabouts and continue as the road goes round a sharp-ish bend to the right. Then, at the next roundabout, it's the second exit (or a left) onto Market Street. Take the second exit (a right) at the next roundabout and you're onto Gigg Lane. The ground is up here on the left.
Located to the north of Manchester, the best way to get to Bury starts with a voyage on the northbound M1 however you prefer to cross the M1/A1 corridor before joining the M6. Once on the M6, continue north for more than 100 miles before departing at J21A for the M62 - signposted Leeds, Bolton and Manchester. Less than 10 miles later - at J12 - switch to the M60 for Leeds and Bolton.
Leave the M60 at J17 for the A56 and follow signs at the roundabout for Whitfield A56, Radcliffe (A665) and Bury A56. Continue through traffic lights before turning right just after the Bull's Head for Bury A56. Keep going towards the town centre for about two miles before turning right for the football ground. Gigg Lane is usually closed on matchdays.
Visitors to Bury should be aware there is a residents' parking scheme in operation in the local area; patrolled by wardens on matchdays and weeknights. There should be some street parking available, however.
Services to: MANCHESTER (for LONDON EUSTON)
Bury's Metrolink station is served by tram services from both main railway stations in Manchester for ease of connection, and is located less than a mile from Gigg Lane. Taxi and bus services are available, but for those walking, turn left out of the station.
Turn left at Chicago Rock Cafe into Haymarket Street and continue straight along into Knowsley Street. Turn left into Manchester Road (A56) and continue down for around half a mile and Gigg Lane will be on the left.
