CONFIRMED: Leon becomes a Cobbler

Leon Barnett leaves Bury FC with our gratitude and thanks

31 May 2017

Defender Leon Barnett leaves the Club to join Northampton Town.

Central defender Leon Barnett has left Bury Football Club to join Northampton Town after termination of his contract.


Leon joined the Club ahead of last season after being released by Wigan Athletic last summer. Injury hampered the start of his Bury career though he forced his way into the side in late August, making his debut in the 1-0 defeat to Oldham Athletic.


His one and only goal for the Shakers came in the next game, a remarkable 3-3 draw at Walsall as the Shakers came back from a 3-0 deficit at half time. He would go on to make 26 appearances for the club.


Leon leaves Bury with our best wishes and thanks for his time at Gigg Lane. We wish him every success in this next stage of his career.
