Bury FC played their 14th league match of the season on October 18th as they faced off with AFC Wimbledon in a match that concluded with Bury FC losing 1-2 and this was the 5th successive league loss in the team of David Flitcroft.
Flitcroft is the coach of Bury FC and he believes that in order to help the current situation of the club, the senior players have to step it up. The 42 year old English spoke to the press after his side lost against AFC Wimbledon and he said:
‘’I have brought some very good, experienced players to this football club but it was the likes of Niall Maher who really stood up in the 2nd half and that was excellent but I’m not wanting Niall at this stage of his career to be outstanding, I want my experienced players to stand out in those moments’’
‘’I’m massively disappointed that we haven’t learned something from all those defeats, drawn a line in the sand, seen the game out for a point, and then we could have built on from that. Second half was better for us because we found a rhythm’’ David Flitcroft of Bury FC said.
Wolves have completed the signing of Bury’s goal keeper Jack Ruddy, Sky Sports reports.
The 18-year old signed a two year deal at Mollineux with an option of an extra year. He would not be able to train with the senior team, based on the report. He would have to start his development with the Under 23 side. The Under 19 Scotland international joined Bury back in 2014 from Spanish club Real Murcia. Before he left, he could only pull in one appearance for the Shakers.
“I’m over the moon to be here and to have joined such a big club with really big ambitions. I have really enjoyed my time at Bury and want to thank everyone there for what they have done for me, but the interest from Wolves was always going to be very exciting,” the excited young lad said.
Ruddy is obviously a big fan of the side as he mentioned that Wolves are a side with history of goalkeepers like Matt Murray, Wayne Hennessey and Carl Ikeme. He seemed happy to get a path to develop as others despite being a young goalkeeper. He is obviously happy that the manager of the club was also a goalkeeper.
Joe Riley who plays for Bury is one of the highly sought after player for a summer transfer move away from the club, according to TeamTalk.com. A lot of clubs are reported to be interested in landing the player. They include Shrewsbury, Burton Albion, Bolton and Fleetwood Town.
The 24-year old began his professional career at Bolton Wanderers but couldn’t make much impact as he would have wanted as he was out injured most times. The most notable achievement when he was at the club was when he was particularly impressive in the 5-0 thumping of Stoke city FC in the English Premier League
. He was given a standing ovation when he was finally pulled off the game.
Riley left the club to play for Oxford United on loan. During his spell at United, he made 24 appearances for the club but wasn’t retained after the season. He didn’t have much left on his deal at Bolton and the club didn’t extend it, so he joined Bury on a free transfer in 2015. He couldn’t even start immediately at the Lancashire club as he suffered a hamstring injury.
Bury have confirmed the signing of three players to the squad ahead of the forthcoming season, according to reports from the club.
The players were signed on free transfer deals. Defender Niall Maher joined the club after agreeing to a 12-month deal. The player was released by Bolton Wanderers before Bury decided to give him a chance. Midfielder Zeli Ismail, who was with Wolves, signed a two-year deal. The third is Ben Williams who is a goal keeper. He rejected a new deal from the Bantams so he could sign for Bury on a two-year deal.
Maher, who is just 20 years old, made five appearances in the last season and he played 10 games on loan at Blackpool during the 2014/2015 season. Ismail, 22, played for the Three Lions in the Under-16 and Under-17 categories. He also enjoyed a loan spell with MK Dons, Burton, Notts County, Oxford and even Cambridge.
On the other hand, Williams played at Valley Parade in 78 games since joining from Scotland in 2014. He broke the club’s record of 25 clean sheets in the last campaign. His career spans 14 years. The former Manchester United trainee has played well over 100 games for both Crewe and Colchester. Read More

David Flitcroft has set his eyes in signing a few performers in this January transfer window but in order to add these players into his team, the 41 year old English manager might have to offload some players of his own in order to create enough space and avoid having an overblown squad with too many players which will unnecessarily increase the wage bill of the team.
Even if Flitcroft does indeed decide to release some of his players and generate some cash from those sales, the manager is well aware that he has his limits when it comes to signing new players to his team as Bury FC does not have the same kind of financial freedom as other clubs when it comes to luring in top players to his team but nonetheless, he will do everything in his power to sign the best players that he can but more importantly is to strengthen the areas of his team which have appeared to be the most vulnerable.
‘’With the injuries we`ve had over the past four or five weeks it`s important that we try and bring some potential signings to fruition. However, it`s not easy because a January transfer window is never easy. You`re usually trying to wrestle with clubs, wrestle with players and different deals’’ Read More
Before the 2015/16 season kicks off, Chris Hughton of Brighton & Hove Albion wants to have his team fully assembled and prepared for any obstacle that this squad might have to face. Chris Hughton wants to rebuild his team but he wants to do this without spending a significantly large portion of money during the summer transfer window.
Hughton and his players managed to avoid being relegated just barely but what Hughton is hoping to accomplish is to improve his team and get them to a point where the possibility of being at the risk of being relegated from the English League Championship is miniscule.
One of the players that Chris Hughton wants to sign is AlirezaJahanbakhsh of NEC Nijmagan. Alireza is a 21 year old winger from Iran and in order to secure his services, a bid in the region of €1.5 million will have to be done. Read More
