  • "Other than Blackwell is there anyone in the world who thinks that the desperately ordinary Zac Thompson is a better player
    than Peter Sweeney?I doubt whether even Thompson himself believes it.More evidence that Blackwell has lost the plot.Only two of the players brought in by Blackwell,Doherty and Poleon,have been league one standard and we've gone ten games without a win with no end in sight to this dismal run.I would put Blackwell on gardening leave,we clearly can't afford to get rid of him, and put Sodje in charge for the rest of the season.Anyway thanks to Peter Sweeney for all his efforts at the club he's been a great player to watch and long after everyone has forgotten about Blackwell we'll remember with fondness a wonderfully stylish and effective playmaker."

Sweeney tears up Bury contract

First published in Shakers Updates

BURY midfielder Peter Sweeney has torn up his contract and has left Gigg Lane by mutual consent.

The club confirmed on its website that the 28-year-old central-midfielder had decided to leave for personal reasons and had taken up a contract at League Two side AFC Wimbledon.

Sweeney arrived at Gigg Lane in August, 2010, and made a total of 95 appearances. He scored five times for the club, including last campaign’s goal of the season - a wonder strike at Walsall.

Youngsters Liam Boswell and Luke McCarthy have also left the club after their contracts were mutually cancelled.
