Bury Confirm Worrall Exit

Bury Confirm Worrall Exit

Bury have confirmed that David Worrall will leave the club and sign a new deal at Rotherham United.

The transfer has taken place following Rotherham paying an undisclosed fee to the club for his signature.

During his time at Bury he made 177 appearances and scored on 12 occasions.

New Chairman Stewart Day has taken to the Official Site to explain the move to fans and to ensure the club aren't open to being cherry picked of our players.

'As the chairman I think it's essential that the fans have access to all information and reasoning behind the decisions we as a board have to make. I was approached by the agent of David Worrall and it was made clear to me that the player no longer wished to play for the club.'

Day says that he made it very clear that both the new board wanted the player to stay and that he was part of Kevin Blackwell's plans for next season as we look to bounce back from recent disappointments.

'He made it clear that if we did not allow him to move, then the player would exercise his rights to move as soon as he was contractually entitled. As a result we had to make a decision based on the best interests of Bury. The player was therefore sold.'

Many fans will say hold a player to their contract but if the player is unhappy and wants to leave, it's best the club secure the best fee possible and we move forward with a team that wants to be here.

Day further explains that he made the statement to ensure fans that the club aren't planning to sell our best players for a quick cash boost, but simply circumstances dictated that in the best interests of each party that a deal was struck in this case.

He further says that for those fans who maybe still harbour doubts about this, they will see the quality of player that the club are going for when we are far enough along the line to announce new signings that have been targetted for the coming season.

He also says that the policy will be not to keep players who aren't 100% committed to the club, which really does make sense really.
