Soaring Shakers Capture Eagles

19 October 2015

Chris Eagles puts pen to paper on a deal until the end of the season

Bury Football Club are delighted to reveal and confirm that free agent Chris Eagles has put pen to paper on a deal with the shakers that will see the former Bolton & Burnley winger remain at Gigg Lane until the end of the current season.  The deal was signed late this evening following the Youth Team's impressive 3-1 win over Tranmere Rovers.


Eagles, 29, began his career with Manchester United before making his name at Turf Moor and latterly Bolton Wanderers.  He has been without a club since joining Charlton Athletic on a short-term deal in May and has recently taken part in training at League One rivals Coventry City on a trial basis.


A talented winger with a host of experience at Premiership and Championship levels, Chris has amassed a total of 345 appearances – scoring 55 goals along the way.

Manager David Flitcroft said this evening:- 

"We would like to welcome Chris Eagles to the football club.  Chris is a player that represents what our DNA of a player is. He joins a number of players we have given an opportunity to reignite their love of football.

Chris is an exceptional talent that needs a support structure that can help him realise his undoubted potential.  We believe if we can get Chris back to his best then we will have an excellent addition to our already young and talented squad."
