      Incoming: Andy Kellett Bury FC are excited to announce former Wigan Athletic player Andy Kellett has joined the club. 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 joins the Shakers following three years playing for Guiseley, after struggling with injury in the previous two seasons he made 14 appearances last season, scoring twice. 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. Bolton scouts were watching and signed him alongside his best mate. 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 Flyde & Alfreton Town before his time at Guiseley.

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.
