Bury FC will be playing under a new skipper

Bury FC will be playing under a new skipper in the upcoming season after Antony Kay took an exit from the club to make his way to Port Vale.

Kay had joined Bury the previous season only and in his debut season itself, he was given the added responsibility of leading the side.

However, he couldn’t have a great season as a player and the head coach Lee Clark conveyed to him at the end of the season that he might not be getting regular Football at Bury going forward and if he wanted to feature regularly, he could move to somewhere else.

Though there was a year left for the expiration of Kay’s contract with Bury, it was terminated prematurely as both the concerned parties agreed for that. The holding midfielder thereafter penned a deal with the 4th tier club Port Vale to join them.

Clark has not yet named anyone as the new skipper of the Shakers and will make a decision regarding it after the pre-season.

As per Clark, he already has a couple of names in his mind, but, he would like the pre-season friendlies to take place before he comes to the conclusion who is the one he wants to give the responsibility to.

He will be keeping a close eye on all the players during the friendlies and will try and figure out who is the one possessing the leadership qualities.

Clark concedes that a leader has to have the respect and admiration of the entire camp. So while choosing the captain, he must take into account that the guy he is choosing is a respected individual in the camp.

Bury will be facing Blackburn, Morecambe, Redcliffe Borough and Blackpool respectively in the four pre-season friendlies.
