BURY’S first pre-season friendly of the season, against Sheffield Wednesday on Friday, July 18, has been switched from their own ground to the AJ Bell Stadium in Salford.

A statement from the club said the change of venue was made to allow their newly laid the pitch the maximum time to be prepared for the new season.

“Redevelopment work on the pitch was delayed by weather and although that is now complete, the club would like to see the surface have another 10 days to grow.”

Tickets for the game are £10 for adults and £5 for concessions.
