SHAKERS BAG A TASTY BUNN TO STUN THEIR RIVALS
AMBITIOUS Bury have fired out a warning to their League One rivals by snapping up Huddersfield Town striker Harry Bunn.
Although there was competition for the 24year-old’s services, the Shakers won the race to sign him – he’s joined on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
The Oldham-born hitman came through the ranks at Manchester City and joined Huddersfield in 2014.
He went on to score 17 goals in 98 games for the Terriers, who won promotion to the Premier League last term.
Bury boss Lee Clark said: “I’m absolutely delighted. We tried very early in the summer to get him, but then when we played Huddersfield here at Gigg Lane, I had a good long conversation with (manager) David Wagner about Harry’s availability.
“There was a brief moment where we thought we wouldn’t get this one done, especially when we heard the calibre of the clubs that were in for him.
“Clubs in the Championship and other clubs in our own division, but we have persevered with it.
“Harry is a proven Championship footballer and he will be a huge asset for us in League One.
“He can play as a striker and on the left wing coming in off the line, as we saw in the friendly game last month. He is a maker of goals and a taker of goals.”
