  • "shaken,until I hear it from the horses mouth,that is Sweeney himself,I remain sceptical about whether his departure was for personal reasons or whether Blackwell just wanted rid.Whatever the case Peter Sweeney,who was our most skilful and creative player by a country mile has been apallingly treated by Barker.Eileen although I hope you are right I don't think there's a cat in hell's chance of the lazy,fat mercenary Healy following Sweens example and ripping up his contract.What club other than Bury would be barmy enough to sign such a useless,idle waste of space?"

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.
