Striker Dominic Telford has today left Stoke City to join Bury on a two-year deal and on a free transfer, announced the club’s official website.
The 21-year-old becomes the club’s 14th signing of the summer in what has been a very busy time for the club.
Shakers’ manager Ryan Lowe is delighted with his latest acquisition and thinks he will be a real force in League Two next season.
“He’s different to what we’ve got,” he told the club’s official website.
“He’s a bit of a fox-in-the-box, he’s that small rapid one that gets in behind defenders and causes mayhem.”
“We know what he’s about and the boy was desperate to come and play for us and he’s seen what we’re trying to build, so I’m pleased to get him over the line.”
The youngster spent last season out on loan at Bristol Rovers and scored three goals as a substitute, including one goal against his new club.
Bury and Ryan Lowe will be keen to bounce straight back from the club’s relegation from League One last season as they finished rock-bottom, despite signing a host of big names last summer.
Despite struggling for goals last season, Telford is clearly a very talented striker and this looks like a great signing.
Bury are clearly intent on going straight back up to League One after an awful season and the 14 new signings emphasise this.
Their plan to sign big names backfired massively last season so this is a continuation of their impressive but much more sensible window.
