Bury St Edmunds captain Matt Eddison has warned the club’s astounding 12-month winning run will not count for anything if they fail to gain promotion. A comprehensive 54-7 victory away at play-off chasing Colchester on Saturday signalled the culmination of a flawless run of the results that has seen The Haberden-based outfit go 12 months without suffering defeat in London One North. Eddison played a key role in the victory, clinching five tries, to take his seasons tally to 10 as Bury extended their lead at the top of the table to 11 points, comfortably clear of nearest rivals Eton Manor.
Despite hailing his side’s incredible achievement, Eddison has warned his team-mates it will count for nothing if they fail to achieve their ultimate aim of promotion, ahead of the visit of third-placed Letchworth Garden City tomorrow (2.15pm). “This run of form has been fantastic, but I don’t want to look back on it and see we didn’t get promoted,” he said.
“Without that this achievement won’t be worth it, we need that recognition of going up.
“We have never experienced a season like this before, but all of our focus has to remain on the next game and keep this winning form going.”
