Bury Town 0 Cambridge United 3

HAVING not played a match for nearly three weeks, this was a useful workout for Bury against a Cambridge side made up of CRC players and 1st XI fringe players.

Cambridge started well and twice went close to opening the scoring in the opening ten minutes. Bury then settled and Sam Reed forced a good save from Laurie Walker before he and Lee Reed both shot wide.
