BURY kicked off the season in style by claiming their ninth Lancashire FA Senior Cup after beating Wigan Athletic on penalties.

Scott Burgess slotted home the decisive spot-kick as the Shakers won the shootout 4-2 after the match ended 1-1.

Both goals in normal time also came from the spot, with Andrew Tutte levelling for Bury after the break following Wigan's 27th-minute opener.

New signing Joe Thompson, who won the man-of-the-match award, was instrumental for the Shakers throughout.

He was brought down for the penalty and could easily have won it for David Flitcroft's side after later crashing an effort against the bar.

Tutte and Thompson scored the first penalties for Bury in the shootout to make it 2-2 before former Bolton stopper Rob Lainton kept out Wigan's third.

The Championship side then missed their fourth spot-kick, while Chris Sedgwick and then Burgess made no mistake for Bury to hand them their first Lancs FA Senior Cup since 1987.

Fans who couldn't make it to the County Ground in Leyland to witness last night's victory will be able to join in the celebrations on Saturday at the JD Stadium when the trophy will be paraded around the pitch prior to Bury's League Two opener against Cheltenham Town.
