Eastham returns to Shakers

Blackpool defender Ashley Eastham has returned to Bury on loan until the end of the season.

Eastham joined the Shakers on an initial month's loan in August 2011 and spent the remainer of last term at Gigg Lane, scoring twice in 27 appearances.

The 21-year-old enjoyed time with Notts County and Fleetwood earlier in the current campaign and is available to make his second Bury debut when Kevin Blackwell's men take on Sheffield United on Tuesday.
