Flitcroft appointed as manager

Shakers appoint David Flitcroft as first team manager with immediate effect

Bury announce new Manager!!!!!!!!


Bury Football Club is excited to announce that we have appointed David Flitcroft as our new manager with immediate effect


The Chairman and the board have been working tirelessly to secure the services of the Championship manager.


"Flits" is no stranger to the Club after playing over 100 games for the Shakers and has always been a popular figure with the fans.


He is no stranger to dedication and commitment and always wore his heart on his sleeve giving 100% whatever his role.


Chairman Stewart Day stated:  "I have been a long-time admirer of David and what he achieved at Barnsley was a credit to him and to his philosophy of hard work and dedication. This is my first managerial appointment as a chairman and it needed to be the right one. Hence I would not be rushed.


I am confident that after meeting with David and his team that we have secured the best manager available to take us to the next level and help us achieve the 5 year goal. David is a dedicated individual that will not accept anything but the best for Bury Football Club.


He had received offers from other Clubs at a higher level, but he has bought into what we are trying to achieve at this Club and has committed his future to take us back to where we belong, the Championship.


Together with the board I would like to thank Ronnie Jepson for all his hard work and commitment.  We wish him well for the future, but he will be leaving the Club with immediate effect.


I knew the first year would be difficult both on and off the pitch, but promise to continue to work tirelessly to deliver the 5 year plan. All I can ask is that then fans come out on Saturday to give our new manager the support he deserves and start the march back up the league"
