BRIEF HISTORY of BURY FOOTBALL CLUB (reproduced from 'Wikipedia' pages)

The club was formed in 1885 by Aiden Arrowsmith following a meeting at the White Horse Hotel, between the Bury Wesleyans and Bury Unitarians Football Clubs. Gigg Lane's first ever game took place on 12 September 1885 when Bury played a friendly match against Wigan, and won 43. In 1887 the first shed was built at Gigg Lane at a cost of 50, also in the same year Bury recorded their record defeat, 010 v. Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup's 1st round. Bury's first ever floodlit game took place on 5 November 1889, when a crowd of 6,000 saw Bury defeated 45 by Heywood Central. In 1892 Bury were Lancashire Challenge Cup Winners, before joining the Football League Second Division in 1894, which they won at the first attempt, being undefeated at home all year, and beating Liverpool in a play-off at Stoke, to go up to the First Division. They stayed there until 1912. Bury's membership of the Football League from 1894 is now the 3rd longest ongoing run (after founders Preston North End and Notts County). On 21 April, 1900 they beat Southampton 40 in the FA Cup Final at Crystal Palace, and returned to the London venue in 1903. The second win was achieved without conceding a goal in the entire competition, including a record FA Cup Final score of 60 over Derby County on 18 April, which remains the highest ever victory in an FA Cup Final. The Bury team pictured in 1892. In 1906 the South Stand was built at Gigg Lane. And by 1922, the ground was finally handed over to the club from the Earl of Derby as a gift. In 1924 the Main Stand was built, during this period Bury's ground was one of the best in the Football League. In 1923 they were promoted again, and in 1926 they achieved their highest League position ever, fourth in the First Division. But two years later they were relegated and have so far not played top-flight football again. Steady decline followed and by 1971, they had reached the Fourth Division for the first time.
