BYRON Moore believes Bury manager Ryan Lowe can help him get back to his best after becoming the club’s second summer signing.

The 29-year-old, who can play as a winger or a forward, joined the Shakers on Monday on a free transfer from League One side Bristol Rovers.

Moore is a product of the Crewe academy and played alongside Lowe during his first spell at Alex, coming off the bench to make his senior debut in August 2007 following an injury to Lowe.

Moore went on to play 297 games in seven seasons with Crewe, scoring 34 goals, but has previously been criticised for his goalscoring record.

His best season’s tally was 10 in 2011/12, when he scored to seal Crewe’s victory over Cheltenham in the League Two play-off final. Moore has since remained in League One, scoring six goals in 59 games for Port Vale between 2014 and 2016, and twice in 56 games for Bristol Rovers.

“I’ve played with Lowey before,” he said. “He knows me and he knows how I play. I believe he can get the best out of me and I can contribute to getting the club back to where it wants to be. I’m very happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started.”

Moore had the option to stay in League One but opted to help Bury regroup following relegation to League Two.

“Byron is a big coup for us as there were plenty of League One clubs interested in signing him,” said Lowe.

“I had to sell the club and myself to him to get this deal done as quickly as possible.

“He has a great pedigree, is an ambitious lad who wants to play at the highest level and is a very talented footballer.

“Byron has that drive and commitment I want all my players to have in being successful. He is one the fans will love to watch at Gigg Lane this season.”
