Bury sign experienced striker

BURY Town have completed the signing of experienced striker Roy Essandoh.

The 35-year-old arrives at Ram Meadow just two days before the Blues get their Ryman League season underway at Horsham, and will be looking to help Bury’s promotion push for the coming year.

The club said in a statement: “Following last season’s proud performance, the directors felt the club needed not just a bigger squad, but a much stronger one if we are to succeed in our push for promotion.

“The squad have been working extremely hard over the last few weeks and they are looking forward to the curtain raiser at Horsham at the weekend.”

The well-travelled Essandoh shot to fame in 2001 when he scored the winning goal in Wycombe’s FA Cup quarter-final against Leicester, having only signed for the club because of an appeal on Ceefax.
