FURTHER employment tribunal payouts have been secured by former Bury FC involving the beleaguered club.

Ex-youth team manager Ryan Kidd has been told he is entitled to a basic award of £3,937 and a compensatory award of £9,000 following a successful unfair dismissal claim.

Employment Judge Marion Batten also ruled an award of £3,513 should be made by The Bury Football Club Company Ltd to the former Preston defender for breach of contract.

And former youth team fitness coach Jamie Hesketh has also had a similar judgement entered in his favour.

Employment Judge Hilary Slater has determined Hesketh is entitled to £1,380 for unlawful deductions from wages in September 2019, and a redundancy payout of £2,625.

And Judge Slater said as he was dismissed in breach on contract he should be awarded £2,692. Another award for unfair dismissal is still to be finalised at a further hearing.

Andrew Tower, the club's former coaching head, secured a similar payout, earlier this year and he still awaits the outcome of an unfair dismissal claim. Ex-lottery collector Keith Hitchen was awarded £16,678 in 2019.

Administrator Steven Wiseglass is currently investigating the financial affairs of the former Gigg Lane club, with another company voluntary arrangement being sought.
