    New Women’s Manager: Jason Jarrett

    Bury Football Club are delighted to confirm that Jason Jarrett has been appointed manager of our Women’s first team.
      Jarrett was appointed interim manager last month but has now taken the role on a permanent basis.
      Speaking to buryfc.co.uk about the appointment he said: “It was quite an easy decision. I thought I would give myself a bit of time to think about it because it’s a big commitment, but just being in and around the girls and working with Gaz & Dave who are going to be my assistants and working with Casey as well it just felt right. I’m really excited to get going.
      Dave Heaney & Gary Pratt will join Jason’s coaching staff as his assistant managers, with Kelly Boag continuing in her role as goalkeeper coach.
      Dave had a brief spell as a youth player at Bury in the early 1990s and featured in a fixture against Manchester City. He’s also been involved in local grassroots football in Bury over the last 30 years as a player, coach, manager & chairman.
      Gary played alongside Jason during his grassroots football days at Roach Dynamos Juniors and is a lifelong Bury fan. He’s been involved in the Women’s game for the last eight years with Manchester Football Dreams in which he’s seen treble-winning success last season.
      Both Dave and Gary are excited to get started.
    “We’re both proud and super excited to get the opportunity to work alongside local Bury legend Jason Jarrett and hopefully together we can help Bury FC Women continue with their success.”
      Head of Women’s Football, Casey Lynchey added: “We have a really strong management team in place, who are already making an impact with the team.
      “We know this season is going to be more challenging than the previous two, but we have a strong team to further build upon and we have had some really exciting trialists down in pre-season too. There’s a real buzz around the place and the result against FC United last Sunday really lifted spirits too.
      “This Sunday sees us host Bradford Women at Unsworth Cricket Club and we know it will be a challenging game but we are all looking forward to it and would love to get a good support down to watch.”
