Flitcroft Returns To Bury

Bury have appointed former Barnsley manager and former player David Flitcroft to the position of manager with immediate effect.

Our former midfielder turned out over 100 times for the club during his career as a player and our board highlighted the former fan favourite as the man to take us forward following the departure of Kevin Blackwell.

Chairman Stewart Day told the Official Site following the appointment that the board had worked long and hard to secure his services following his release by Barnsley and they are delighted that he brought into the ethos and ambition of the club because he was apparently mulling offers from the higher divisions.

'I have been a long term admirer of David and what he achieved at Barnsley was a credit to him and to his philosophy of hard work and dedication. This is my first managerial appointment as a chairman and it needed to be the right one, hence I would not be rushed.'

Day goes onto say that having met Flitcroft and his team, and there plans allied with what the board want to achieve at the club, he feels he will help take us to the next level and prove the right choice to enact the five year plan the board have in place for our growth again.

As a consequence of his appointment, caretaker gaffer Ronnie Jepson has also now left the club equally with immediate effect, and Day wanted to place on the record his personal thanks, and that of the board, for all the hard work that Ronnie has put in to the club and for stepping up the way he did, so everyone wishes him well for the future.

At least with the appointment now is should bring that touch of stability and of course if the board are going to stick by him long term, then he has a few weeks to get his feet under the table prior to the January window opening so he can start altering the squad to suit what he wants from them.
