Bury AFC have announced a new, expanded structure to the club.
This has been the club’s first season – albeit a severely disrupted one due to the wider circumstances – but the team sit top of the NWCFL First Division North after seven games (with teams having played varying amounts of fixtures).
The club have said the following as part of an update: “We have already announced our intention to launch a full range of women’s teams, including an open-age team, veterans and walking football for next season. We also hope to introduce men’s veterans and walking teams to the club.
“This will give us over 20 teams and hundreds of players to look after. We have started to re-organise the operational teams required to run the expanded club.
“This includes the creation of a new, combined football club board, which will represent both men’s and women’s elite teams. We are following the lead of a growing number of clubs who have taken a progressive approach to football by combining men’s and women’s football, and treating them as equal rather than separating the two.”
