Kevin Blackwell: Sacked by Bury

Bury were relegated from League One last season and 16 players left in the summer as the club looked to ease financial pressure following a takeover in May.

Blackwell had been out of football for more than two years when he took over at Gigg Lane in September last year.

They are currently 21st in League Two, without a win in their last seven games and just one point off the relegation places.

The 54-year-old had handed contracts to 17 players since the summer and signed a further five on loan before being shown the door by the Shakers.
