n Bury’s third string — the Wolves — were knocked off the top of Greene King IPA Eastern Counties League Division Two West after suffering a 19-10 loss at Cambridge IV.

A fantastic passage of play allowed Cameron Brough to saunter under the posts for Bury’s opening five points, but Patrick Turner missed the conversion.
With the wind in their favour, Cambridge dominated the second half and moved into a 12-5 lead.
Pressure from a determined Bury side paid off when Giles Cooper finished off a well-worked move in the corner, but Cambridge touched down again.
