It is with deep regret that we announce the death of former player George Hazlett, aged 89
Glasgow born George Hazlett arrived at Gigg Lane in June 1949, a £2,500 signing from Belfast Celtic and would spend the next two seasons as a Shaker. During his time at Gigg Lane, George made 103 appearances, scoring 11 goals before leaving for Cardiff City for a £5,000 transfer fee.
His time at Bury was to be a good time for George as he met his wife and settled into the area. George sadly died on Saturday 22 December, aged 89.
The club would like to send their deepest condolences to the family and friends of George at this sad time.
