    Bury manager Kevin Blackwell has been relieved of his duties after new Chairman Stewart Day decided he wanted to shake up the structure of the club.

    Blackwell had been at the club since September 2012 when he replaced Richie Barker but was powerless to stop the Shakers getting relegated from SkyBet League One last season.

    Stewart Day took over the club in May when Bury were 24 hours away from being shut down and has already stamped his authority on the club by relieving Blackwell of his duties.

    Day released a statement on the club's official website stating that a new manager would be appointed within a week.

    Press Conference

    Q: Do you feel that your ambitions for the club are matched by the Chairman?

    A: Absolutely. I have no doubt that the Chairman has the club's best interests at heart and the fans are fortunate to have such an ambitious mind running things.

    Q: Do you feel the expectations asked of you this season have been far and realistic?

    A: I'm very happy with the direction we're going in. Everyone at the club wants to be the best they can be, nobody more so than me.

    Q: New managers often bring about times of upheaval and some at the club might feat for their jobs. Will there be many changes?

    A: Everyone will have a chance to prove that they are worth of being here.

    Q: Bury have been on a general downward curve for a little while now. Can you get things moving in the right direction?

    A: I hope so; this club deserves to be doing much better that it currently is, and if I can play a part in moving in a positive direction then I'll be happy.

    Q: While some managers are famous for their hands-on approach, others maintain a more reserved manner with their players. How do you see your management style?

    A: I want every player to know that they can come to me with anything.

    Q: Last season was not one to remember for Bury fans. How do you rate your chances of bouncing straight back into the SkyBet League One?

    A: Things are in place to make an immediate challenge for promotion.

    Q: You stand here today unveiled as the new Bury manager. As a big fan of the club, surely this must be a dream come true?

    A: I have dreamt of this moment for years.

    Q: It is often said that different managers favour different competitions. Will you be concentrating primarily on getting good results in the SkyBet League Two?

    A: Absolutely, that competition is my main focus.

    I'll be deploying VikingArrow's 4-2-3-1 tactic for the foreseeable future as I believe it is a very balanced formation that will be both solid at the back and creative up top. Tom Soares will be the most important player for me in the formation as he will be the main attacking threat from just behind the striker. I will be rotating the three striking options I have available with Shaun Harrad, Ashley Grimes and Anton Forrester getting game time until I discover who my best striker is.

    Liam Ridehalgh (DF) - Free - Huddersfield Town

    Liam was brought in on a free transfer after being transfer listed by Huddersfield Town and he will provide great competition for Gareth Roberts for the left back position

    Out

    Trevor Carson - ?135,000 - Barnsley

    With Brian Jensen and Rob Lainton more than capable of being a solid goalkeeper, I took advantage of the interest for Trevor and made a huge profit on him.

    Adam Lockwood - Free - Barnet

    Adam was on a big wage for a player that wouldn't be used this season. With three central defenders ahead of him in the pecking order, I thought it would be a good move as it frees up a wage that can bring two players in.

    Marlon Jackson - Free - Released

    Marlon agreed to mutually terminate his contract after I told him he wouldn't get much game time this season. The tactic that is being used only has one striker and with three strikers ahead of him, Marlon agreed to leave on a free transfer.

    A solid start to pre-season with three wins over Chorley, Chelsea U21's and Manchester United U21's before a loss to SkyBet League One side Tranmere. A draw against Queen of the South followed before a hard fought victory over local side Radcliffe Borough which gives us great confidence ahead of the opener against Chesterfield.

    Bury have today announced that manager Michael Henson has signed a two year extension to his current deal which was due to end at the end of the current season.

    The 26 year old's contract will now end in June 2016 which will be a boost to Bury fans as he has led them to the top of SkyBet League Two in recent months.

    Henson's side are only a few victories away from automatic promotion to SkyBet League One and with his contract tied up, he can now fully concentrate on getting the job done.

    Pre-Season Press Conference

    The scene is set for when Michael Henson takes part in his pre-season press conference ahead of the season opener against Portsmouth.

    Q: How disappointing was it for you to finish 2nd to rivals Rochdale after being at the top of the league for a while?

    A: Rochdale deserved to win the league as I felt that we faltered towards the back end of the season after gaining promotion against Plymouth. If we hadn't slipped up against York or Portsmouth then the title would have been ours but we did and the players know they let the fans down.

    Q: There has been a large overhaul in the squad this pre-season, what is the reasoning behind this?

    A: The club made a massive loss last season in SkyBet League Two so the budgets were heavily reduced for the upcoming campaign. Despite me leaving almost ?7,000 a week spare on wages last season, that amount has now disappeared so we had to get rid of a lot of players on big wages to bring in a decent standard of player.

    Q: Tom Soares was sold for a very small fee despite being rated quite highly, why did you get rid of your star man?

    A: His wage was quite ridiculous for a lower league player and I can only blame the previous management team. He was on ?3,200 a week and he wouldn't take a wage reduction to extend his contract so there was only one way to sort it out. I'd rather get a small amount for a player than nothing at the end of the season.

    Q: Another first team player that left for ?10,000 is Liam Ridehalgh. He joined a team in the league above yet you sold him for next to nothing. How can you justify that?

    A: Moving Liam on was a hard decision for me and I feel he will go far in the game. After promotion to SkyBet League One his wage went up to ?2,300 a week and, like I stated before, the budgets were reduced this season and I could get a couple of decent players on that money.

    Q: Many of the players brought in are very young, do you think they can make an impact straight away?

    A: Some of the may be able to, some will play in the Under 21s for a while. Alex Kemp is a very handy player and he has been with the first team squad in pre-season so will feature quite regularly this season.

    Q: Danny Mayor returned to Gigg Lane on another season long loan. I take it your a big fan of him?

    A: Danny is a very talented player. It surprised me when I saw him on the loan list again after he played so well for us last season. It didn't take me long to make a decision and I am delighted to have him back for the 2014/15 season.

    Q: Former Rochdale striker Chris Dagnall signed for the club during pre-season, are you worried that the fans might not take to him as he played for your rivals?

    A: Some may still hold a grudge against him for playing for Rochdale but I certainly don't. That's football for you. I firmly believe that Chris will score many goals for the team and that is the reason why I signed him.

    Q: Do you feel that with all these changes it will disrupt your preparation as all the players will have to get to know each other again?

    A: Not at all. The team has been working very hard during pre-season to get to know each other and how each other plays. The core of the defence is unchanged so that will be a huge boost to our defence and William Edjenguele has been named as captain so he will once again be a massive player for Bury.

    Q: Finally, what can you achieve this season?

    A: I think that we can achieve a steady mid-table finish with the players we have available to us. The Chairman wants me to avoid relegation and I fully believe that we can do that.

    LOYAL HENSON

    Shaking up the Football League - A Bury FC Story-orient.jpgShaking up the Football League - A Bury FC Story-palace.jpgShaking up the Football League - A Bury FC Story-swindon.jpg

    Bury born Michael Henson has stayed loyal to his local team as he turned down three job interviews in the past week.

    League Two side Swindon were the first to approach Henson but he turned them down within an hour of the phone call before fellow League One side Leyton Orient asked Henson to travel down to London.

    Championship team Crystal Palace are languishing at the bottom of their league but Henson told SkySports that it would be a step down to move to a sinking ship after their relegation from the Premier League.

  25. I've just started a save with Portsmouth in League 2, I'm 29 games in and I'm 2nd, 10 points behind Chesterfield. Didn't realise how tough managing in League 2 was; don't know if you experienced this but the amount of times I've been punished by long balls is unreal. Anyway well done on getting promotion, great story

    It is quite tough but once my tactic was fluid I found it a lot more easier. Long balls were a problem at the start but I changed one of the CBs to cover and that problem was eradicated. Thanks for following!

    Henson in high demand

    Shaking up the Football League - A Bury FC Story-burnley.jpgShaking up the Football League - A Bury FC Story-sheffield-wednesday.jpg

    Bury manager Michael Henson is in high demand as a number of clubs look to snare him away from his boyhood team.

    Since the last time Henson went public, the 27 year old has been invited to 10 interviews by clubs in the Football League including SkyBet Championship clubs Burnley and Sheffield Wednesday (pictured).

    Henson spoke to BBC Radio Manchester earlier on today about his recent popularity:

    "I think it is very flattering that so many clubs are interested in my services, it must mean that I'm doing something right! However I have no interest in leaving Bury until they are a dominant force in European football."

    "Two job offers made me laugh recently as both Bolton and Rochdale contacted me about an interview. Why would I leave my boyhood team to go to their rivals? I didn't even bother returning the calls. I was delighted that our 3-1 victory over Bolton saw Neil Warnock get sacked so why would I want their job?"

    Yeah pretty much fluid now and I'm storming the league, 12 games unbeaten. Even defending set pieces isn't a problem. Glad you're getting recognition from other clubs but I think you have to win the CL first

    Wembley Stadium: The stage is set.

    The 2014/15 SkyBet League One Play-Off final takes place at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday with the two highest ranked teams left in the play-offs facing off against each other. Bury take on Bradford at the national stadium and many are expecting an entertaining end to the season.

    Team News

    Bradford

    Shaking up the Football League - A Bury FC Story-bradford-badge.png

    Manager Phil Parkinson will definitely be without Adedeji Oshilaja as he is suffering from a double hernia but apart from that he has no fresh injury concerns after their penalty shootout victory against Notts County. The two Premier League loanees, Omar Rowe and Wellington Silva, are expected to feature in the starting eleven for the final time this season as Parkinson looks set to name an unchanged lineup.

    Bury

    Shaking up the Football League - A Bury FC Story-badge.jpg

    Manchester City loanee Dominic Oduro will not be available for selection as he is on international duty with Ghana U20's so Bersant Celina may be promoted to the bench. Hot prospect Alex Kemp has recovered from a neck strain and may play a small part in the game after returning from international duty. Kemp is one of Bury's brightest talents and has recently been tracked by Manchester City after he refused to sign a new contract. Top goalscorer Chris Dagnall is expected to continue in his lone striker role.

    HENSON EXTENDS STAY WITH SHAKERS

    Bury manager Michael Henson has signed a second contract extension which will see him remain at the club until at least June 2018.

    Bury were promoted to the SkyBet Championship at the end of last season after beating Bradford at Wembley and Chairman Stewart Day has rewarded efforts.

    His previous deal was due to run out at the end of the 2015/16 season but he has signed a two year extension after recently rejecting the Newcastle United job.

    Following lengthy discussions with Chairman Anthony McGuire, Michael Henson has been allowed to keep his job as Bury manager following McGuire's takeover of the club.

    McGuire has been impressed by the support for Henson and said that he had been persuaded to let him stay as manager instead of appointing Sean Dyche.

    This was no doubt helped by the Bury fans singing throughout the away game at Sheffield United and after the game for half an hour: "Don't sack Henson, Michael Henson. You just don't seem to understand that if you sack Henson, Michael Henson you're gonna have a riot on your hands!"

    The transfer embargo on the club has also been lifted.

    Speaking exclusively to SkySports Michael Henson had this to say; "I'm delighted that I have been allowed to keep my job as manager. I've been a fan of the club since I was little and came through their youth academy so I'm extremely proud at how far we have come. I'm now looking forward to the January Transfer Window when I can improve the squad."
