Bury Football Club can announce the arrival of two additions to Dave McNabb’s squad, as striker Declan Daniels and defender Ethan Kachosa arrived in Lancashire to sign up this week.
With both Benito Lowe and top-scorer Andy Briggs sidelined with injury, the manager has dipped into the market for a goalscorer. And currently in the NWCFL, there is no-one is finding the net like Daniels who has netted 33 times for Irlam already so far this season.
His tally makes him the leading scorer in the league, with 21, as well as 12 goals across 10 cup fixtures, and a total of four hat-tricks this term alone.

Starting his footballing career in Suffolk in the academy at Ipswich Town, the Merseyside-born Daniels, 25, found his way back to the North-West in 2018 in the NPL with first Warrington Town, and then stints at Winsford Town, Clitheroe, Skelmersdale United, Lower Breck, Burscough, Atherton Colls and Widnes.
Joining Dec in the Bury ranks is right-back Ethan Kachosa who has had two years as a professional at Sunderland. Hailing from West Yorkshire, Ethan joined Leeds United as a scolar in 2019. When his contract ended in 2021, he made the move to the north east and playing in the under-21 side at the Stadium of Light, appearing in the Football League Trophy.
Earlier this year, Kachosa (20) joined Guiseley on loan and played seven games in the NPL, scoring once. At the end of his Sunderland contract in the summer, Ethan had a spell in East Sussex at Isthmian League side Lewes from which he joins the Shakers.
The manager gave buryfc.co.uk his thoughts on the latest additions:
Whilst we await league approval on the signings, we expect both Ethan and Declan to go into contention for the weekend, as we head to Longridge Town.

It’s our first fixture of the festive month of December, as we head to Longridge on Saturday afternoon.
A visit that has been delayed by a week due to poor weather, we should have seen a scheduled game against Ramsbottom United at Gigg Lane but due to the Rams being in FA Vase action, we have brought forward our trip over to Preston.
The Ridge have had mixed fortunes in their last six fixtures winning two, drawing one, and losing three, and currently occupy 19th spot in the table.
We head into the game off the back of a 3-1 win against Pilkington, and the team will have had plenty of time to rest up as it will have been 10 days since the last fixture by Saturday.
You can watch the highlights of that game and watch the latest episode of Playing Away below!

The frost has beaten us this weekend and Longridge have advised us that the game is to be postponed.
Assuming Ramsbottom’s cup game is postponed (they expect it to be but the ref needs to confirm this) our fixture against them on 9th December will be re-arranged. It does leave this date free for both us and Longridge Town, so we are expecting to play tomorrow’s fixture on that date. This is subject to league approval and more details will follow.

As we head towards 2024 and the new era at Bury Football Club, we reach out to update you around the future of the ‘Treasureline’ partnership with our friends and colleagues at National Youth & Community Development Association (NYCDA).
Alongside this great news, there is a chance to win on our prize draw available to all new members who sign up by Sunday 10th December. Full details will be available at the bottom of the page.
Many of you will fondly remember the old Treasureline lottery of yesteryear, which raised funds for the club in the form of a weekly lottery draw. That unfortunately almost completely disappeared due to initial management issues, and eventually the impacts of Covid which significantly impacted on the collection of door-to-door cash contributions.
Industry experts, and Bury town centre based NYCDA, took on the remnants and refocused the old approach to ensure the Treasureline name was not lost. This way proceeds were continued to be generated, with Treasureline becoming part of their NYCDA Weekly Draw and those remaining contributors could continue to support their chosen cause.
Going forward, fans and local people alike can join this draw, and in turn will be able to support this cause by becoming a participant in the NYCDA Weekly Draw. All proceeds generated are to be used to support the club’s activities across the Borough of Bury, in growing our men’s and womens’ youth and elite player development programmes.
Activity behind the scenes is beginning to ramp up, so stand by to see and hear more and more on social media, at game days, at official club events, door-to-door campaigns, telesales activities, email campaigns, business initiatives and much more.
Members can play for as little as £1 per week with the opportunity to win BIG!!!
Fantastic cash amounts, including a main weekly £1,000 prize, as well as a £500 Rollover, which can rise to a huge £10,000, are up for grabs! Additional prizes ranging from £10 to £100 are also available every Wednesday.
Click here to join
Right now we are running a special prize draw incentive to join by midnight on Sunday 10th December. All fans who sign up to support the club in this way can enter the prize draw by clicking on the image and inserting ‘BURYFCXMAS’ as the promo code when joining!
Prizes including a signed 2023/24 home shirt, a pair of tickets into hospitality and a number of items of official club merchandise.
