Shakers Appoint Wilkinson As New Boss

Bury have announced the appointment of Paul Wilkinson as the new First Team Manager

The former striker takes over from Ryan Lowe who departed for Plymouth Argyle last month.

Wilkinson was recently caretaker manager at non-league Truro City where he had just signed a two-year deal.

Speaking to the club's website, he said:

“I’m delighted to be here, Bury is a club with a great history and I can’t wait to get started. I’m determined to drive the club forward in the right direction.”

General Manager Scott Johnson was thrilled to get the deal over the line, "It's such a strong foot forward, Paul is a manager with a wealth of experience, something that is modern day and is exactly what we need and is required for League One football."
