Bury Town 2

AFC Sudbury 3

Bury Town’s first game of the season ended in defeat in this tight encounter.

Tom Manning cancelled out Sudbury’s early goal, but the Blues fell behind again before half-time and AFC converted a penalty to stretch their lead to 3-1 after the break.

Although the Blues pulled one back when Joe Stanton was brought down and Lee Chapman smashed home the resulting penalty, they could not find another equaliser.
