After recovering from long-term injury, academy graduate Oliver Kilner has joined Bury on loan until the end of the season.
Oli has spent the last year recovering from a serious broken leg, a similar injury to one he suffered prior to joining the academy.
Showing great courage and determination during his recovery, he has been supported by the club throughout his return, working closely with Mick Rathbone and the physiotherapy team as he has worked his way back to full fitness.
With Oli now ready to get back out on the pitch, he has joined Bury until the conclusion of their season in April.
Bury are currently second in the NWCFL Premier Division, sitting a point behind Wythenshawe Town, but have a number of games in hand.
The loan will be a great opportunity for Oli to gain experience in a first-team environment, in front of crowds of over 3,000.
All the best at Bury, Oli!
