Scott Newland has joined the Clubs growing player education programme all the way from Perth Australia...
An attacking midfielder or striker, Scott will play for the Shadow Youth Squad whilst under taking the BTEC Level 3 Sports Performance and Excellence in partnership with VLUK.
Scott travelled to England before Christmas for a weeklong trial, scoring in narrow 2-1 defeat to Chelsea. Both parties decided a full time placement would be worthwhile and Scott has now arrived to start the 2 year programme.
He has so far displayed a positive attitude both in the classroom and on the training pitch, and is pictured here with Bury FC Chief Executive Glenn Thomas signing his education forms in the boardroom.
