Former Ranger striker Nicky Clark has joined the Shakers on a two-year deal.
Bury FC have beaten off competition from a host of clubs in our attempts to sign former Rangers striker Nicky Clark, and we are absolutely delighted to reveal that Nicky has joined the club after putting pen to paper on a two-year deal.
Bellshill born striker Nicky Clarke was released by Rangers at the end of last season following their promotion to the Scottish Premier League. A product of the Aberdeen youth system, Nicky came through their Youth side and was named as an unused substitute during the 2008/09 season before signing a contract extension for the Dons for the following season, however the following season he joined Peterhead on loan in search of regular first team football.
Aberdeen released him at the end of the 2009/10 season and he quickly agreed a deal to join Peterhead on a full time basis. Nicky stayed there for just 12 months before joining Queen of the South where he was to link up with his father Sandy, who took over the assistant manager role. He enjoyed a fruitful season, scoring 41 goals from 47 appearances, included in those goals was a strike in the Scottish Cup Final which saw Queen of the South lift the trophy as well as the Second Division title.
In May 2013, Nicky signed a three-year contract with Rangers, where he scored on his debut after just 30 Seconds, in a 5-0 win against East Fife. Nicky would go onto make 102 appearances for Rangers, scoring 23 goals before he was released at the end of last season.
Nicky will link up with his new team mates on Monday when the players return for pre-season training. We’ll also have full reaction from manager David Flitcroft on Shakers Player HD and YouTube. Nicky's registration with Bury is of course subject to the club receiving International Clearance from the Scottish FA.
