Byron Moore is set to be the latest Bury player to quit the Shakers and join former manager Ryan Lowe at Plymouth Argyle as reported by Football Insider.
According to reporter Pete O’Rourke, a Home Park source has revealed Moore has served notice to terminate his contract with the Shakers due to the club’s financial problems.
The thirty-year-old was influential in helping Bury win promotion from League Two last season, scoring eight goals and providing four assists in forty-three games across all competitions and the report claims that despite interest from several EFL club’s Lowe has moved quickly to secure the services of his former player.
The experienced winger also won promotion to League One with Crewe Alexandra via the playoffs in 2012 and has enjoyed spells with Port Vale and Bristol Rovers since breaking through at Gresty Road.
The experienced campaigner has made close to four hundred career league appearances and now looks set to follow former teammates Danny Mayor, Dom Telford, and Will Aimson in pursuing his future on the Devon coast.
Another good signing for Argyle and more despair and disappointment for Bury fans.
Lowe continues to raid his old club in the hope he can recreate the togetherness and outstanding football he produced at Gigg Lane last season.
If the players settle in Devon and gel with the players already at Home Park, Argyle should be a good bet for automatic promotion next season.
For Bury fans, the future looks bleak, and we feel for them,
All they can do is hope a new owner is in place in time for them to get a squad together for next season.
On a day when the EFL produced a survey that they spun into a positive reflection of their governance of the league, everyone at EFL headquarters should hang their heads in shame over the continued ownership issues that beset their clubs and their supporters.
