Sky Bet League One side Bury have appointed Chris Brass as their new head coach and Ryan Kidd as his assistant.

The news comes over a month after David Flitcroft left the club having failed to win any of his last 11 matches in all competitions.

Brass has been interim manager since Flitcroft left the Shakers and will be in charge until the end of the season, while Chris Sedgwick will remain as first-team coach.


Peterborough recover to win against Bury

Peterborough secured a first win in nine matches with a 3-1 home defeat of Bury.

After falling behind to a second minute Hayden White own goal, the hosts rallied through Chris Forrester, Marcus Maddison and an Antony Kay own goal to move into the League One play-off positions.

For high-flying Bury, it was a third straight loss after five wins out of five in September. Peterborough suffered a poor start when right-back White turned Zeli Ismail's low cross into his own net under pressure from Tom Pope.

The home side equalised in style after 38 minutes, with Forrester meeting White's deep right-wing cross and playing a one-two with Tom Nichols before curling home.

Maddison completed the turnaround three minutes into the second-half, collecting Gwion Edwards' pass 10 yards out and side-footing a shot into the far right-hand corner.

The scoring was completed four minutes later when Nichols gathered Leo Da Silva Lopes' cross, before hitting a low cross which struck Bury goalkeeper Ben Williams and then Kay on its way into the net.

Ex-Man City youngster makes Bury move

Bury have signed left-back Greg Leigh on a two-year deal from Bradford City, the two clubs have confirmed.

Leigh came up through the ranks at Manchester City, enjoying a season on loan at Crewe before being released and joining Bradford on a permanent deal last season.

The defender managed just nine appearances last season at Valley Parade.

Bury striker Callum Styles has become the first player born in the 21st century to feature in the Football League.

The teenager replaced Anthony Dudley in the 75th minute of the Shakers' 3-2 win over Southend on Sunday aged just 16 years and 41 days, having been born on March 28 2000, according to The Times.

The newspaper reported the English National Football Archive (ENFA) had confirmed no other player born since the Millennium has appeared for a league club in a senior match.

Styles, who still plays for Bury's Under-16 side, failed to become the club's youngest-ever player though, with their record held by Jimmy Kerr at 16 years and 15 days.

This month, West Brom striker Jonathan Leko became the first player born in 1999 to start a Barclays Premier League game when he was given a full debut in the Baggies' 3-0 defeat to West Ham.
