Bury FC swoop for 'Big Jessy'

BURY are waiting on international clearance for latest signing Jessy Reindorf, who has been dubbed the “new Kevin Francis” by manager Kevin Blackwell.

The 6”5 Rwandan international striker certainly casts a similar gate to the former Stockport County legend referred to by Blackwell.

It now remains to be seen whether the 22-year-old can match him in the goal stakes after being handed a two-year deal.

The French-born player had been plying his trade in Belgium, previously playing for Union Royal Namur, and has represented Rwanda twice this year in World Cup qualifiers.

He made his mark on Blackwell with an eye-catching performance in a behind-closed-doors match at Blackburn on Tuesday.
