    Bury FC are excited to announce former Wigan Athletic player Andy Kellett will join the club for the upcoming campaign.

    The 29-year-old has a wealth of experience to bring to Andy Welsh’s squad and can play in an array of positions including central-midfield as well as left-back/left-midfield. 

    Kellett will join the Shakers following three years playing for Guiseley. He struggled with injury in the previous two seasons, but scored twice in 14 appearances last term.


    Born in Bolton, he was playing grassroots football when his team got to a final which was played at the stadium of his hometown team. After an impressive performance in front of the Wanderers scouts, he signed for the club.

    He progressed through the ranks at Bolton, playing in the U23s and the B team, whilst also going out on loan to Manchester United & Plymouth Argyle. 

    In 2015, Andy made the move from Bolton to Wigan, where he played for three years before joining Notts County, which is where he made his one appearance against Bury FC in December 2018 during a 0-0 at Meadow Lane. 

    After leaving County he went onto play for AFC Fylde & Alfreton Town before his time at Guiseley. 

    Upon joining the club Kellett said:


    “It’s always a nerve-wracking thing coming to a new football club. In my previous clubs, I’ve always known people going into them but I’m coming to this one not knowing anyone. I’m sure we’ll have a good pre-season together and get to know each other.

    “I’ve always known Bury as a team to be in the Football League, it’s a little bit different now but hopefully we can re-build it back to being that status again. 

    “I’ve played with lads before who have said that if you can get down to Bury, get yourself down there because it’s a brilliant club.”
