Flitcroft keen on new signings

Bury boss David Flitcroft has not stopped his January recruitment drive as he bids to keep his side in the Football League.

The Shakers are just two points above the drop zone in Sky Bet League Two and Flitcroft has had a busy transfer window in his bid to improve the club's fortunes.

Jim McNulty, Robbie McIntyre, James Burke, Frederic Veseli and Pablo Mills have arrived at Gigg Lane while Gareth Roberts, Marlon Jackson, Jessy Reindorf, Euan Holden and Shaun Harrad have left.

But Flitcroft is eyeing up more recruits ahead of the window closing as he attempts to build a squad capable of driving Bury up the league.

"I have made my promise to the chairman and the board that I will attract as good a player as I can to Bury," Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester.

"We are getting a lot of things right but it has been a relentless four weeks of getting players out and in.

"You don't get pleasure out of moving people on. They are great professionals and you have to say bye to them, but they have to move on with their football careers.

"We want to move forward here, I don't look into the past. I am looking to the future."
