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.”
