JOE Widdowson is expected to be unveiled as a Bury player later this week.

It is understood the 25-year-old left-back is waiting to complete the paperwork on his Shakers move, but was included in the club’s official team photo shoot today.

The former Rochdale defender, who played under Bury boss David Flitcroft at Spotland, has spent the last two seasons at Northampton, making 64 appearances before being released in the summer.

Flitcroft had hinted Widdowson and fellow trialist Peter Sweeney were considering other offers after the pair failed to feature in either of Bury’s pre-season friendlies since returning from a training camp in Tenerife.

But while former Shaker Sweeney now looks unlikely to return to the club, it seems Widdowson has done enough to earn a deal.

Please do catch up Bury Times !!!!!,Widdowson and Thompson have signed short term deals earlier today.
Meanwhile Our gaffer has made another baffling decision to release Burke,we only signed him in January 2014 from Htfc.
Our board do sanction these deals and once again we find for whatever reason a players stay at The JD stadium is a short one.
Off the field "world class,on the field ???????????????????,
I'm presuming David watches players in real time before he requests to sign them as in the case of young Burke.
He impressed me with his brief appearances so our loss will be someone else's gain.
