Bury Town lose to a Cambridge United XI
A weakened Bury Town slipped to their third successive home defeat in their pre season programme, losing 4-1 to a young Cambridge United XI.
Cambridge took the lead through Andy Pugh after good work by James Akindtunde on 16 minutes.
The visitors went further ahead on 25 minutes when Eoin Kirwin scored from close range following a corner.
Bury started the second half well and reduced the arrears after 68 minutes with a Billy Clark penalty after Seb Dunbar had been fouled in the box.
But Cambridge restored their two goal advantage six minutes later when a defensive blunder let in Pugh to score from a narrow angle.
And Pugh completed his hat trick three minutes later after keeper Stephen Fenner dropped the ball, to give his side a comfortable victory.
