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.

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.
