Bury Kings reigned supreme once again after being crowned the National League champions for a second 
successive season.

After victories over Leeds Galaxy and Fareham Rhinos gave them their 10th straight league win, Bury were handed the title with two games to spare with their nearest challengers slipping up.

Bury, unbeaten this season, were crowned league winners after Guildford Inferno lost to Southampton Stags.

Bury Tchoukball Club’s first team will now go into the national championships play-off semi-finals hoping to make it four national championships in a row.

Club captain Ian Parker could not hide his pride for his side which has not lost in the national league since March 2013.

“It’s another brilliant achievement for the team,” he said. “It’s another piece of silverware to add to the collection but we know it’s only a job half a done.

“Now we want to add the play-off finals too. Winning the championship for a fourth time in a row would be something special.”

The club has seen success from all of its teams this year. The second string Bury Saints side currently sit third in the Second Division while the club’s youngsters are also the national under-18 and under-15 champions.

Parker added: “While it’s great to consistently be at the top, having such a rapidly improving second side and two very impressive youth teams shows that we are not just the best team in the country we are the best club overall.”

That progression is set to continue next season when the club enters a third team into the National League, the first in the country to do so.
