Shakers shock Canaries with cup win

Published Add your comment

Bury wrote a fairytale chapter into their 123-year history with a momentous and thoroughly deserved 2-1 FA Cup third-round replay victory against Coca-Cola Championship outfit Norwich.

The cash-strapped League Two outfit - who sacked manager Chris Casper and director of football Keith Alexander on Monday - went ahead through defender Ben Futcher in the 18th minute.

Leading goalscorer Andy Bishop applied a neat finish to claim his 12th of the season shortly after the hour mark to secure a famous win and set up a fourth-round trip to Southampton.
