Kitman Michael gets stitch in time
WITH the earlier than usual start to the season it’s been a busy old time for everyone – but spare a thought for Bury’s Michael Curtis.
The long-serving Shakers stalwart is head groundsman and kitman at Gigg Lane but was forced to wait until this week for their new strips to arrive.
With virtually a new squad, including Rwandan international striker Jessy Reindorf, to remember Curtis must have been sweating over spelling all the names correctly.
But fortunately their kits arrived on Thursday at 7pm and Curtis ensured they were all correct and on parade for their first home game yesterday against Chesterfield.
