A Bumper crowd turned out to watch a young Bury side take on Radcliffe at the Neuven Stadium.
It was Radcliffe that started the better and they soon got a chance to go in front when a Frank Barry free kick picked out his team mate who produced a fine header on goal, Colin McCabe had to make a great save to keep the shot out.
Carl Peers was the next to have a chance for the Boro after a well-placed corner picked him out and he fired his shot unfortunately off target with twenty minutes gone.
After the game passed the half hour mark, Bury started coming more into the game and began to press Radcliffe high up the pitch.
With it being a pre-season game Radcliffe chose the option of playing a few trialists and one came very close after a great cross from the right flank with the trialist producing a nice diving header which just went wide.
Half Time Score: Radcliffe 0-0 Bury
Bury came out for the second half looking to try and dominate the possession. They soon got a chance to go in front after a cross from the right picked out Rob Harker whose header was well caught by Kyle Haslam.
Saul Shotton headed the Shakers in front in the 55th minute after a nice cross; Haslam just couldn’t get to the header.
Haslam was called into action again when Douglas Nyaupembe had a crack at goal, but the Boro keeper was equal to it and made a fantastic diving save in the 59th minute.
McCabe was called into action for Bury when he made a great save after Peers found a bit of room to fire a shot at goal in the 74th minute.
Haslam was almost caught out after he ran off his line to deal with a Bury chance, but the ball wasn’t cleared and it found its way to Weath Da Silva who attempted to lob the young Radcliffe goalkeeper, but Haslam got underneath the ball and made a good catch to keep the deficit down to one with only a couple of minutes remaining.
