BURY manager Kevin Blackwell has moved to further strengthen his squad with the signing of Euan Holden - younger brother of Bolton Wanderers' USA international Stuart Holden.

The 25-year-old, who can play in midfield or at left-back, has become the fourth player to sign non-contract terms at Gigg Lane, following Tom Soares, Seb Carole and Valery Mezague.

Holden, who recently left Stockport County after making 34 appearances for the Edgley Park outfit, played in Bury reserves' 1-0 defeat at home to Shrewsbury Town last week.
