Bury Town fightback to set up Charlton cup-tie
BURY Town staged a remarkable fightback to set up an FA Youth Cup second round tie away to Charlton Athletic.
The west Suffolk side trailed Bromley 4-1 at half time in Thursday night’s first round tie, but scored four times in the second half to go through to face npower League One opposition in the next round.
Bury took the lead after only six minutes when Adam Burroughs got clear and slotted past the keeper. Bromley came back strongly and some poor defending by Bury saw the visitors score three goals between the 15th and 23rd minute. A Bromley penalty in the last minute of the first half then looked to have put the tie beyond Bury’s reach.
With the wind behind them, Bury started the second half on top and when Burroughs was fouled in the box on 50 minutes, Luke Parkinson stepped up to reduce the arrears from the spot.
Four minutes later Daniel Hitching got a third for Bury following a corner.
