Bury Town boss Ben Chenery would love to add to his squad as he prepares for a busy festive period.
The men from Ram Meadow have a packed schedule of eight games between now and the end of the year, starting with the visit of Barking tomorrow.
Bury are in good health but, with a small squad of players at his disposal, Chenery would love to be able to bring in reinforcements.
“Ideally we would need more players and we are actively looking for them, myself and my staff, but a lot of clubs are in the same boat and are holding onto their playe Bury Town boss Ben Chenery would love to add to his squad as he prepares for a busy festive period. rs because they have a lot of games coming up,” the Bury boss said.
“Then you come out of December and you don’t have so many in January and February. That needs to be looking at in the league really because you have so many in December. It’s unreal.

“It’s a busy period, it always is, and it’s a tough one because the pitches get heavier and there are some tired legs around.
“When you play Saturday-Tuesday it’s a lot for these lads and they have long days, but we are healthy enough.
“We are always one injury away from having to plug a gap but that’s just what we are dealing with.”
The clash with Barking sees Bury, currently sitting in 10th, face a side five places and points ahead of them, with Chenery expecting a tough encounter as his side bid to bounce back from a 4-1 defeat by Waltham Abbey last time out.
He said: “Barking is now a big game for us and they’re doing really well. We need to improve our performance levels and our intensity and if we can do that then we are a match for any team.
“We’re disappointed with Saturday’s result because it’s one we thought we could do well in, so it was a very uncharacteristic performance which took us by surprise.
“Nothing went for us but we didn’t do enough to get the rub of the green and were well beaten, so we’re looking for a reaction.”
