Bury have today confirmed that they have parted company with Manager Andy Welsh after a recent run of form that has seen two wins in their last eight games in all competitions.
A statement released on Sunday via their club website reads:
"We can confirm that Bury Football Club and manager Andy Welsh have agreed to part company.
We would like to thank Andy for his hard work and commitment to the club, the players, and it’s volunteers over the past three and a half years. Andy provided outstanding leadership throughout some difficult and turbulent times, not least during a global pandemic when just playing football was a challenge. In addition to winning a league title Andy quietly helped and supported many volunteers off the pitch when they needed it.
He more than earned the right to lead the team at Gigg Lane at the start of the season. We can’t speak highly enough about him as a person, and we know many will be extremely sad to see him go. Unfortunately, we have decided now is the right time for a change and we wish Andy all the best for the future.
The under-23s management team of Leon Mike and Stephen Sheil will take charge on an interim basis, with the recruitment process to appoint a new manager to begin with immediate effect."
