Newly promoted League One outfit Bury have been served with notice by Manchester City to vacate their Carrington training base. According to reports from England this notice was given to the club after claims of neglect by Manchester City over the state of facilities.
The Citizens had rented the Shakers their training facilities since 2014 when the club moved to its new training ground. However, Bury have failed to hold their side of the bargain which stipulated that the buildings and pitches be well maintained
Bury manager Lee Clark is confident his side’s improved display in their 0-0 draw at home to fellow League One strugglers Plymouth could help kick-start their season.
The Shakers hit the woodwork three times, while Pilgrims goalkeeper Luke McCormick was their best player as they clung on for a goalless draw.
League One side Bradford City have confirmed a season long loan deal for Bury player Adam Thompson.
The 24-year old defender joined Bury this summer from Southend. He has played in three games but he likely did not match the expectations of manager Lee Clark so he was shipped off.
The Northern Ireland player is with the national team for the international break. He would join Stuart McCall’s side after international duty. The former Watford centre half is expected to add to the City ranks this campaign. McCall said he was happy to have the player on board as he plays a role they clearly wanted to strengthen.
As Bury lose the new addition, they have added another in MihaiDobre from Bournemouth. The 19-year old winger is expected to feature for Bury until January. He would miss the clash with Scunthorpe this weekend as he is with Romania U-21 for international games. Read More
It seems Bury FC has stopped their pursuit of Tom Aldred for some reason.
The defender was on the radar of the club a while back and there was even a meeting held between him and Lee Clark who is managing the Shakers at the moment and it was believed that Clark had put a 3-year contract on the table for Aldred in that meeting.
But, all of a sudden after that, there was a change of heart for Clark and he opted for a couple of other defenders leaving the Aldred deal in the cold box and recently, he said that he wouldn’t be making any more additions to his defence department this summer which clearly meant that the arrival of Aldred to the Shakers camp was out of the question, at least for now.
This is somewhat surprising because Clark had worked with Aldred before. In fact, he was the one who had brought him to Pool when he was at the helm at Bloomfield Road and he was pretty keen on reuniting with him, but, it wasn’t to be and the 26-year old would now have to look for another destination as his current deal with Pool has already expired.

Bury, who are fighting a relegation battle this term, defeated their guests Northampton 3-0 in a League One clash over the weekend.
started the game poorly as goalkeeper Joe Murphy made an error that resulted in a goal in favour of James Vaughan as early as the third minute.
They tried returning the favour but Brendan Moloney fired over the bar. Both sides had chances that they failed to convert. Bury player Tom Pope sent his effort straight to the keeper; Murphy stopped Matty Taylor’s set piece; Ryan Lowe went close twice while Taylor Moore sent his volley over.
The scoreline had just the single goal until Miller headed in a rebound after Cameron Burgess’ effort. The 72nd minute goal made it 2-0 and it seemed it would end there until Vaughan scored in injury time to make it 3-0. Read More
Bury manager Lee Clark said that he is confident that his team can avoid relegation.
His team who is currently three points above the relegation zone has struggled in recent weeks, and it is only now that there are signs that they are coming back in form.
Clark said that his team is gradually getting accustomed to his methods and he feels that the players are responding well to the training. He stated that the team was in a mess when he took over and he had to motivate the players.

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.
