Five depart Bury after contracts are cancelled by mutual consent

Bury Times: Bury boss David Flitcroft has released five players Bury boss David Flitcroft has released five players

DAVID Flitcroft's trimming of his Bury squad has continued today with five players leaving the club after having their contracts cancelled.

Marlon Jackson, Gareth Roberts, Jessy Reindorf, Euan Holden and Shaun Harrad have all departed the JD Stadium for the final time.

The longest serving was Harrad who arrived at Bury on transfer deadline day in August 2011.

Holden, the brother of Bolton Wanderers midfielder Stuart, joined last season while Jackson, Reindorf and Roberts were acquisitions made by previous boss Kevin Blackwell last summer.

What a terrible waste of resources and time spent on training,paying these players who will still be on the club's payroll come next summer.

This confirms what a shambles this board has made of the recruitment of players for Bury fc.

Our Chairman has once again shown a massive lack of experience when it comes to allowing so many of our players to come and go in such a short space of time.

The really sad thing is that it has cost time,money and resources and owner might think long and hard before he allows future signings.

My advice to him and his directors is to employ someone on the board who actually knows how to run a football club.

Out of the players that have been released the only one that brings cheer to my heart is the lamentable Shaun Harrad who's heart has never been at Bury fc since his arrival in 2011.

Ex Pat, I dont agree Shaun is a fine striker its just a pity he has'nt performed for us at Gigg. When at other clubs Shaun appears to have not trouble finding the onion bag, so what does that say.
Good luck Shaun, i just hope you dont come back to haunt us one day.

I agree with ALL of the decisions especially Roberts. He was personally responsible for many of the early loss of points under KB. Yes, Eileen is correct to a point with regards to the mismanagement of brining in players who should have never been brought in. She is also right about the lack of experience but I would buffer that with the Board trusted KB.

Now, the board removed KB and it is up to Flits to sort out this mess and yes, unfortunately they are on the bill through summer. However, that is business. Sometimes you make the right decisions and sometimes you d not.

What is clear to me, Flits is not putting up with players who cannot perform and that....is a good thing,

Dodgy you are right to a point, but you must admit he has let us down more than cheered our blue and white hearts.

All 5 of those players (including Harrad), won't be missed. Holden, Jackson and Jessy obviously aren't upto it and Roberts is way too old.

Let DF build his team, just as Knilly did all those years ago...hopefully we'll get the same result.

Oh and for the record, i agree with Ex Pat, Harrad couldn't hit a barn door.

DODGY, Harrads record:
2 goals in 39 app at Bury.
1 goal in 29 app at Notts C.
8 goals in 31 app at Cheltenham.
10 goals in his first 2 seasons at Burton (79 games).

I'm sorry, but imo he had 3 "decent" seasons (at Burton) in his career. Hardly prolific is it fella, but the 6 goals he did get at Northampton made some numpty at Bury think he was a world beater.

Time to move on. Onwards and upwards.
UTS!!!!!

What's the world coming to?, -9 in votes for yours truly and yet fewer comments.Maybe the phantom supporters who never have anything meaningful to say are too illiterate to come on here (Yellow bellies the lot of them)."THE WITCH HUNT HAS ALREADY BEGUN".

Carry on doing your great work Mr.Chairman (building a future for those students), but you and your directors need a football education in how to run a sporting business on the field especially.

I was saying two months ago as we drifted along downward under Jepson that they needed a footballing advisor to this board. I fully believe that still, and agree as such with EileenShaker. It's unlike any other kind of business and unique with the fragility of results and performance quality on the field at games. Just look across the city at United. A 25% loss in value since Fergie's departure! They are still bringing in huge revenues, but reducing on field success will start to bite soon.

Well said and quite right with your view with regard to there being a lack of football knowledge and the board are indeed short of an advisor who can address the poor decision making when it comes to the recruitment of players and the right kind of personalities which match our ambition.

In the past previous managers have simply brought in players on a football basis rather than actually getting the right characters and personalities which can compliment the team.(No more wage thieves please)

David has recruited well since he has been at Bury fc and i think the board are now on track to find and recruit the characters that we badly need in the dressing room which have been missing for the first half of the season.

I agree with you Norwichshaker but i think how our season started and the games which the football computer dealt us were probably the reason why we got off to such a poor start to the season, notwithstanding a very poor manager and a below average group of professional footballers..

I'm hoping that one or two of these games might be postponed to help the club out with a fixture congestion especially the ones played on a tuesday night.

We all know that the Shakers tend to play better football once the pitches have hardened up around late March.

Nice to see that Chessy lost 2 precious points and had a player sent off last night even though it was against the Fail.
