Bury Football Club have completed the signing of midfielder Byron Moore.
The 29-year-old graduated through the Academy at Crewe Alexandra, making his debut against Brighton in August 2007.
Byron has made a total of 412 appearances in all competitions for Crewe, Port Vale and Bristol Rovers, contributing 41 goals. Possibly his most important of those was in the 2012 play-off final against Cheltenham Town at Wembley Stadium, as Crewe gained promotion to League One.
Speaking to us this morning, Byron said: “I’ve played with Lowey before; he knows me and he knows how I play. I believe he can get the best out of me and I can contribute to getting the Club back to where it wants to be. I’m very happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started!”.
Manager Ryan Lowe added: “Byron is a big coup for us as there were plenty of League One clubs interested in signing him. I had to sell the club and myself to him, to get this deal done as quickly as possible. This is very pleasing for me, he has a great pedigree and is an ambitious lad who wants to play at the highest level and is a very talented footballer. Byron has that drive and commitment I want all my players to have in being successful, he is one the fans will love to watch at Gigg Lane this season!”.
Sporting Director Lee Dykes said: “We are delighted to get Byron signed, this is a deal that Ryan, in particular, has worked hard on since his appointment and one that adds real quality to the playing squad.”
