Peter Shirtliff: Bids Bury farewell

Shirtliff, Kevin Blackwell's right-hand man, expressed his desire to leave Gigg Lane to new chairman Stewart Day, who only completed a takeover of the financially-stricken outfit at the end of last month.

The Shakers, relegated to League Two, have confirmed they will announce Shirtliff's replacement later on Wednesday.

The former Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton defender joined Bury in June 2011 as assistant to Richie Barker.

He then took the reins on a caretaker basis last August following Barker's switch to Crawley but failed to win any of his nine games in charge before Blackwell was appointed in late September. He returned to assistant.

Shirtliff and Blackwell, however, were unable to prevent relegation from League One.

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
