Bury have completed the season-long loan signing of Newcastle youngster Tom Heardman – a striker Shakers boss Lee Clark has likened to Andy Carroll.
Bury’s latest signing Tom Aldred said the lure of a promotion challenge is what tempted him to leave Blackpool and join the Shakers, after he signed a two-year deal with the club yesterday.
The 43-year-old succeeds Luke Williams, who was sacked at the beginning of May, after the Robins were relegated from League One following a penultimate day defeat to Scunthorpe United.
The 27-year-old previously made 145 appearances for the Shakers during a three-year spell with the club, before being released at the end of the 2012-13 season and joining Oxford.
The 44-year-old had been in charge of Killie since February last year, and has EFL experience having previously been at the helm at Huddersfield, Birmingham and Blackpool.
The 38-year-old hitman left the Shakers in August to join Alex, and has scored nine goals in 28 appearances so far this season, but there have been rumours of a move back to Bury since December.
