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
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.
He said that the players had been so used to losing games that they were not willing to fight anymore. Lee Clark stated that he had to spend some time to talk to them to make them believe that they can be competitive and win matches. Read More
Bury took advantage of the January transfer window and brought in Joe Riley as the new right back. The 23-year-old is one of the new players at the club but he is also joined by goalkeeper Nick Pope.
Both these players are expected to feature in the mammoth clash against Wycombe Wanderers this weekend. While Riley has moved on a permanent transfer, Pope is set to stay at Bury until the end of the season. He is on loan from Charlton Athletic. These new arrivals have also meant that manager David Flitcroft has changed the formation of the team.
Bury are now playing with four at the back rather than just three defenders like in the first half of the season. Flitcroft is known as a manager who favours the 3-4-3 formation. Read More
