Mildenhall Town 2 Bury Town 2

BURY Town maintained their unbeaten run in their concentrated pre season programme in this hard fought draw.

Playing down the slope, Bury had the better of the opening exchanges with Andrew Tidswell going closest. Mildenhall looked sharp on the break, but were unable to fashion a clear chance.

The hosts then had a period of pressure and the Bury defence were often at full stretch. In a Bury break Sam Reed fired wide from six yards following good play by Elliot Hunter.
