Bury Town 0 Grays Athletic 2
Bury Town were officially relegated from the Ryman Premier Division, after conceding two late goals to a much-improved Grays Athletic at Ram Meadow on this afternoon.
This has been a very difficult season for Bury, and their manager Ben Chenery in particular, squatting in the bottom four for virtually the whole campaign.
So is no real surprise that the cash-strapped West Suffolk outfit have been consigned to Ryman North football for next season, with five games still to play.
The Blues have mustered just five victories all season, and scored only 30 goals in the process. In short, they have been doomed for months.
In a way, today’s clash encapsulated their whole season.
Bury huffed and puffed, and put in plenty of effort, but they rarely looked like scoring a goal, and were eventually undone by two goals in the last few minutes.

Centre-forward Dumebi GB-Dumaka broke the deadlock on 84 minutes, stabbing home from Correy Davidson’s miscued shot, before substitute Bradley Fortman-Tomlinson doubled the lead in the second minute of injury-time.
