EX-Colchester United favourite Wayne Brown’s change in priorities have helped influence his decision to drop out of the full-time game and sign for Bury Town.

The 34-year-old left Preston in the summer but has since been training with the U’s, Peterborough and Bradford.

The former U’s skipper recently turned down a deal to stay in the Football League, as he did not want to uproot his young family again.

“The agreement I have with Bury is that if a Football League did come in for me in January and it was worth my while financially and geographically, then I would be allowed to leave,” said Brown.

Brown played 142 league games for Colchester and was a key member of their promotion-winning squad of 2005-06.
