  • "First of all i would like to thank Peter Sweeney for all of his efforts/goals during the last 2 campaigns and wish him well at Lowly Wimbledon.

    I must say that i was rather shocked to read of his sudden departure.

    How does this decision to rip up his contract benefit Bury fc from a financial perspective?.

    Well he's off the wage bill,but no fee was paid and we have lost a good player who is a creator of goals.

    Whatever his personal reasons for him leaving i have to respect that until i learn different from other sources.

    I think the directors will have to follow Morecambe's initiative and allow our supporters in for free for the rest of the season.

    This is the final straw for me in a very long and agonising season where we have won just 4 games/26.

    I can't see many fans stomaching much more of this.

    I am now fearing administration although i won't lose any sleep if Blackie departs.

    I'm presuming that other Bury fc players will now follow Peter's move and just tear up their contracts.(Bishy/Hea

    I think it sets an unwanted president for disgruntled and unhappy players to initiate a move via their agent like in the case of Mozzy.

    Sorry KB i can't get too excited about signing up Thomo for the rest of the season how is he a better player than Sweeney?."

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.
