Rob Lainton: Had several contract offers to mull over

The 23-year-old has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the League Two club following a successful trial at Gigg Lane.

Lainton rose through the academy ranks at the Reebok Stadium but failed to make a first-team appearance and was released at the end of the 2012/13 campaign.

He had several contract offers this summer, including from Championship admirers, but has opted to link up with Bury, for whom he appeared in the second half of Saturday's 2-1 pre-season victory at non-league Radcliffe Borough.

Lainton becomes the eighth player to join the Shakers revolution following the takeover of the club in late May and the subsequent lifting of a transfer embargo.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
