Bury have struggled in League Two during the last two seasons and were one of a range of clubs concerned in previous season’s tense relegation battle. Chris Casper’s aspect dug deep and ground out four draws and 1 win as they remained unbeaten in their final 5 matches of the campaign – surviving by 4 factors.

Goals have been hard to arrive by – the Shakers scored just 45 ambitions in 46 matches last period. The club’s best goalscorer was midfielder Simon Whaley, who left for Preston North Stop in January for £250,000 following scoring 7 targets in League Two. Innovative midfielder Marc Goodfellow, who had spells at each Swansea City and Grimsby Town last time has been drafted in on a twelve month contract to check out and add further spark.

Following an damage ravaged time, former Preston North End, Carlisle United, Watford, Oldham Athletic and Dundee United striker Allan Wise joined Northern Irish outfit Portadown on a totally free transfer while assistant supervisor Ian Miller left to join Championship aspect Leicester Metropolis in a related function.

Nevertheless, Bury have been boosted by the news that midfielder David Flitcroft committed himself to a further twelve months at Gigg Lane as have defensive duo Chris Brass and Colin Woodthorpe. Skilled goalkeeper Alan Fettis, with spells at Hull Town, Nottingham Forest and Blackburn Rovers to his credit history, has been drafted in to fill the void left by Kasper Schmeichel, who returned to Manchester Town soon after a profitable mortgage spell.

VerdictBury lack overall top quality and are in desperate want for a verified goal scorer after Whaley ended the campaign as the leading marksman even with shifting on in the January transfer window. They are likely to be concerned in yet another relegation battle but this time it could be a single they could shed at 4/1 odds.
