Ryan Lowe has made an emotional return to Bury, signing a two-year deal with the Shakers, writes the Bury Times.
The fans favourite at Gigg Lane netted 53 goals in 97 games between 2009 and 2011, including a memorable winner against Chesterfield that earned Bury promotion to League One.
In his previous spell at the club he broke a 53-year-old club record by scoring in eight consecutive games.
The 35-year-old scored 20 goals for Tranmere Rovers last season despite the Prenton Park side falling through the League One relegation trap door.
Lowe left the Shakers in August 2011 for an undisclosed six-figure fee to Sheffield Wednesday but left a year later to sign for MK Dons.
