John Sands joins Bury Town

MILDENHALL Town striker John Sands has agreed to join Ryman League Premier Division side Bury Town.

Sands has been on loan at Ram Meadow for a month, after being unable to win his place back at Mildenhall.

He scored twice on his full Bury debut, at home to Chatham Town in the 3-2 win in the third round of the Alan Boon Cup.

Sands, who saw his chances of signing for Cambridge United after a trial at the start of the season scuppered by injury, is to sign an 18-month contract with Bury.

Trevor Collins, Bury Town’s director of football, said: “John has agreed to put pen to paper on an 18-month deal and we are delighted that everything has been agreed in time for him to be in the squad for this Saturday’s game.

“The management have been really impressed with his attitude during his one-month loan deal and in particular his willingness to learn and improve.

“In the short space of time that John has been at the club he has already become a crowd favourite and we are sure the Blues fans will welcome this news.”
