Bury Football Club is an association football team based in Bury, Greater Manchester. The team play in English Football League Two. The club’s nickname is “The Shakers.” It was bestowed upon them by club chairman JT Ingham, an industrialist and ironmonger of the late 1890’s.
Bury F.C. finished in 4th position during the 2008/09 League Two season. They went on to lose to Shrewsbury Town in the League One promotional playoffs.
The Bury F.C. have now launched theri Surridge home and away kits for the 2009/10 League Two season. Both kits are inspired by Shakers’ kits of the 19th century. According to the club’s site:
For one season only, the club have reverted back to the home kit first used for the 1887/88 season when the shakers turned out in White Shorts with Chocolate and Sky Blue halved shirts. This kit has been dug out of the history archives and will become the new home kit for the 2009/10 season – the club 125th anniversary.
The kit, shown below with Andy Bishop becoming the first Shaker in over 120 years to wear it, is already in full production and will be worn for all home games this season.
The new away kit is a re-incarnation of the kit used originally as our home kit back in the 1892/93 season with Navy Blue shorts and red & white striped shirts, as worn by David Buchanan below.
