Shakers legend Paddy Kenny has cut short his contract with Bury Football Club due to injury.
Bury Manager David Flitcroft has confirmed that recent signing Paddy Kenny has opted to cancel his contract at the Club due to an injury he sustained during training.
The experienced goalkeeper had been training with the Shakers for over a week after signing a short term contract when he tore his calf while reaching for a practice corner at Carrington Training Complex.
He has been given the verdict that he will not be back before his contract at the Club ends at the start of January 2016. Paddy will still do his rehabilitation at the Club, to get himself back fit.
David Flitcroft has thanked the goalkeeper for agreeing to help them out in a tough period even though it hasn’t worked out. He has even higher praise for Paddy’s desire to cancel his contract, so as not to take money off the Club he loves.
Talking exclusively to Shakers PlayerHD David Flitcroft said:
“Paddy only had a seven week contract, we weren’t expecting it, but Paddy came to see us and said that he loves the Club, he loves the fact we gave him an opportunity, but he doesn’t feel like he is going to earn his money now he is injured.
“Quite incredibly he has decided he wants to cancel the contract. Incredibly he had guaranteed money there, but he has said he can’t take money off the football club, which is quite a unique circumstance.”
The interview with David Flitcroft will be live on Shakers PlayerHD tomorrow morning.
