BURY Town recorded a famous victory as they knocked League One opponents Walsall out of the FA Youth Cup at Ram Meadow last night.
Bury twice came from behind before finally winning 3-2 to set up a home tie with Macclesfield in the second round.
Walsall were well on top from the start and missed several half chances to take the lead. Nick Pope was busy in the home goal and Daniel Hitching cleared off the line as the visitors pushed forward.
The deadlock was broken after 28 minutes when Bury failed to clear a free kick and George Bowerman scored.

Against the run of play in a rare Bury break, Jack Minns got clear in the 62nd minute to get Bury back on terms with a cool finish.
Walsall stormed back and regained the lead after 70 minutes when Jamie Patterson slipped the ball past Pope from close range.
It was all Walsall, but Bury did look dangerous on the break and Minns had an effort cleared off the line.
In an amazing last six minutes, substitute Matt Chaplin got an equaliser for Bury with virtually his first touch after 84 minutes and three minutes later provided an inch-perfect pass for Andy Nugent to slide the ball into an empty net as the keeper came out.
