TEAM Bury striker Andrew Wood has committed himself to the club for the foreseeable future.

Wood, who played a key role in Team Bury's FA Vase win over Mildenhall, was subject to a seven day approach from them a few days after the match.

However, he has decided that he will remain at the Ridgeons League Division One club.

“I am flattered by Mildenhall's interest in me and thought about their offer but I feel I want to stay here,” said Wood, who is Team Bury's vice-captain.

“Team Bury are a young team and although I'm only 22 myself, I am enjoying passing on my experience to the younger players. I am keen to develop and I know I am capable of playing at a higher level, but at this moment in time I am enjoying my football in a good young team.”

Team Bury joint managers Neil Reader and Dean Greygoose said: “We are delighted that Andrew has decided to stay with us. He is a very key player for us and adds some experience to our young squad.

The news that Wood will remain at Team Bury comes as a timely confidence boost after last Saturday's disappointing result in the FA Vase when they lost 4-2 to Bugbrooke St Michael's after leading 2-0.
