Former Ipswich Town star Alan Lee has been named as a director at non-league club Bury Town.
The Irish star, who scored 34 goals in two separate stints with the Blues, joined Bury last season as the club's Head of Player Development, and will now be involved in the day-to-day running of the Ram Meadow outfit.
Bury play in the Ryman League North under boss Ben Chenery, and finished sixth last season, one spot and 15 points off the play-offs.
Club chairman Russell Ward said: "Alan has made massive improvements to the club in his short time with us, he has given us access to improved training facilities.
"He also continues to improve and enlarge our youth section, and next season we will have a total of 36 teams representing Bury Town FC across all age groups, both male and female.
