Bury Football Club was the first in the wider Manchester region to find major success. In 1900 they won the FA Cup, defeating Southampton 4-0 in the final and in 1903 they won the competition again by defeating Derby county by a record 6-0 scoreline (this was equalled by Manchester City’s FAC final victory over Watford in 2019).
