Bury academy grads Scott Burgess and George Miller have extended their contracts with the club, according to reports.

The teenage sensations eventually broke into the senior team under manager Chris Brass. The former deals were set to lapse at the end of the season but will now run until 2019.

Both youngsters scored a goal in the 4-2 defeat at Bristol Rovers. Burgess, 19, is older than Miller by a year but Miller has netted three times now in seven games since he broke into the first team. The goal against Rovers is Burgess’ first as a professional footballer.

Shakers coach Brass has decided to regularly call on the youngsters since his appointment to replace former boss David Flitcroft. Since taking over, he is yet his first win after four games but he disclosed that he is fine with the performance of the youngsters when called upon.

George has done brilliantly and is another young player who ha stepped forward, when needed, bu coming of the bench to score goals for us. It’s fantastic for everyone that he has made an impact for us when we have needed it,” Brass said.

The manager added that Miller would have to keep working hard if he wants “to keep progressing.” He even compared the young player to Leicester City player Jamie Vardy.

“He is bang on track to where we want him to be and he has the same kind of raw talent that you see with players such as Jamie Vardy,” Brass said.

Brass then commented on Burgess, saying:

“Scott is a young man who has grown up over the last 12 months and is now finding himself. He is now at that age where he does understand the bits that he still needs to work on in order to move forward.”
