The Irish star, who scored 34 goals in two separate stints with the Blues, joined Bury last season as the club's Head of Player Development, and will now be involved in the day-to-day running of the Ram Meadow outfit.

Bury play in the Ryman League North under boss Ben Chenery, and finished sixth last season, one spot and 15 points off the play-offs.
