Author(s): James Bentley, Alistair Campbell
In an age when football clubs name 18-player squads on each and every match day, Burys achievement in winning promotion from Division Four in the 1984/85 season, using only 15 players throughout its entirety, will never be repeated.
British football lay squarely in the doldrums in the middle of the 1980s. Hooliganism was the scourge of the game and crumbling, archaic grounds were a million miles from the gleaming stadia of today. Bury fan James Bentley knew that ex-England international Martin Dobson led the squad, which featured star names from the player-managers illustrious past at Burnley and Everton alongside those of local heroes, but he didnt know anything about the team and how they succeeded against the odds. He set out to find them and to tell their story, against the backdrop of Britain in 1984 and 1985.
This is the story of The Forgotten Fifteen: How Bury Triumphed In British Footballs Worst Year.
