Sweeney tears up Bury contract
5:12pm Tuesday 8th January 2013 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.
