FIRST NEW FACE ARRIVES AT RAM MEADOW AS TWO DEPART

Bury Town have added their first new face to next season's squad with the significant signing of midfielder Dave Bridges.
We first met with Bridges 12 months ago but the time wasn't right for the move to take place but the player had no hesitation this time round. "I'm good friends with Adam Tann and Craig Parker and they couldn't say enough good things about the club. They told me that the players are really well looked after and the club is full of good honest people".
Bridges began his career with Cambridge Utd but enjoyed most of his football league success at Stevenage where he was a valuable member of the squad who gained promotion from the Conference Premier to League Two and where he also enjoyed FA Trophy success. A former England C international, he finished last season at Chelmsford City.
The signing of Bridges is the beginning of the rebuilding programme which will enable us to challenge for the league title next season and he is under no doubt as to what the ambitions of the club are "It's great to be on board at an ambitious club and there's no reason why we can't get promoted automatically and I will use all of my experience to make sure this message is believed by all of my new team mates".
Two players who have left Ram Meadow are Sam Nunn and Elliot Hunter. Sam has been released by the club after being here for a number of years and it was a decision which was an amicable arrangement between Sam and the management. He has been a very good, reliable player for a long time now and we will all miss his character around the building but he needs a fresh challenge and everyone at Ram Meadow sends their best wishes to him for the future. Sam has been a key member of the squad which has been promoted and won a number of trophies in the last few years.
Elliot has decided to ply his trade closer to home after his work situation has made it difficult for him to commit to training and games. His attitude has been fantastic and he has been a pleasure to have around the building. We all wish him the very best of luck and hope he has a clear run in the future without any further injuries.
