CONFIRMED: Soares leaves for AFC Wimbledon

31 January 2017

Undisclosed fee takes Tom Soares away from Gigg Lane

Tom Soares has joined fellow EFL Sky Bet League One side AFC Wimbledon for an undisclosed fee.
Soares joined the Shakers in July 2012 on non-contract terms.  Signed by then manager Kevin Blackwell, Tom would go on to become something of a utility player for the club playing in several positions over the years.
Writing himself into Shakers folklore, Tom scored the only goal of the game as the Shakers won automatic promotion to League One at Tranmere Rovers on the final day of the 2014-15 season.
During his five year stay at Gigg Lane, Tom made 174 appearances with a further 13 appearances from the bench - scoring 22 goals – with his last goal for the club coming last weekend with a dramatic 93rd minute equaliser against Walsall.
Bury Football Club would like to wish Tom all the very best for this next stage of his career and we thank him for his five years’ service at Gigg Lane
