BURY defender Marcus Poscha has joined Stockport County on loan until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old youth team graduate made his Shakers debut from the bench during a goalless stalemate against Morecambe in May 2014, but has not featured for the first team since.

After captaining the youth team to the league title last season he signed a pro deal with Bury last summer at the same time as fellow graduates Scott Burgess, Anthony Dudley, Jack Ruddy and Matthew Foulds, who has since moved to Everton.

He was unable to break into the senior matchday squad though and spent time on loan at Evo-Stik Premier side Ramsbottom United before securing a move to National League North outfit Stockport on Thursday.
