Oldham Hold Bury 2-2

Oldham Athletic were able to force a draw away from home when they met with Bury over the weekend.

Oldham pulled one back and a late effort from Ben Pringle ensured they got a share of the spoils.

The exciting first half of the game saw the determined hosts go two goals up courtesy of Jay O’Shea and Neil Danns. Before the break, Oldham Athletic, who are determined to stay as far away as possible from the red zone, pulled one back through Craig Davies. They fought hard and got the late equalizer, leaving Bury frustrated. The results see Bury remain bottom on the log while Oldham are far from utmost concern of relegation.

CLARK: WE HAVE TO BE MEN

Lee Clark had to watch his side concede a 90th-minute winning goal from the stands after he was sent off during Bury’s 3-2 defeat at Rotherham.

Kieffer Moore twice put the Millers ahead, but they were pegged back in each half by Jermaine Beckford and Nathan Cameron headers and when it looked like the Shakers may cling on for a share of the spoils, Richie Towell drilled home the winner in the final minute.

BRUCE OPENS UP ON BURY DEPARTURE

Bury fans got the explanation they wanted following the shocking exit of Alex Bruce.


The fans of the club were still trying to wrap their heads around the sudden departure of Adam Thompson, though on a loan deal, when reports surfaced that Bruce was moving out as well.

Bury had explained that the player joined the club on non-contractual terms in their statement. Additionally, Bruce took to Twitter to explain that the media left that part out when reporting the details of his move.

Following his release from Hull City, the defender has been seeking new employers all summer. He claimed he asked to train with the team while searching for a new club, so the deal was non contractual.

“I accepted the kind offer from Lee Clark and Alan Thompson, who I have known for a long time, to train with the first team squad in order to maintain my fitness. At no point did I enter a contract with the club,” Bruce clarified.

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.
