Well after 13 games without a win, Bury have now won four out of five, after Saturday's fantastic 4-2 success at Notts County. That result has left us 12th in the table which seems quite extraordinary after that long bad run when we were all worrying about relegation.
Thankfully, that now seems like a long time ago and we're left wondering what we might have achieved with a little bit more luck during the bad spells.
Certainly Richie Barker has proved his doubters wrong. Let's hope that now we've secured our league one status for next season, we can not only kick on and cement that top half position, but RB can start to make some definite plans for next season. Perhaps we can look to keep hold of loan players like Eastham, Clarke, Carrington, Grella and Coke whilst also making sure none of the contracted players want to leave.
Onwards and Upwards.
As an aside, it might be worth giving our dear neighbours Rochdale a mention as they slipped back into league two this weekend, hopefully for another 40 year spell. In years to come the current fail fans will be all glassy-eyed, telling their grand kids that they were there when fail were in up in the lofty heights of league one and for one season, were in a higher league than Bury. Ah, them were the days. . .
Up the Shakers.
