Bury have signed striker James Poole on non-contract terms.
Poole leaves Hartlepool United after failing to agree to a new contract.
The former Manchester City youngster had been at Victoria Park from 2011, following a loan spell at Pools during the 2010-11 season. In this time he scored 16 goals in 116 appearances.

When Poole left Hartlepool he told the club’s official website, “It just feels like the right time to move and try something new, but I’ll take with me some good memories of Hartlepool United.”
Poole was previously at Bury on loan from March 2010 until the end of the 2009-10 season, making 9 appearances for the Shakers.
