BURY boss Stan Ternent today made his first raid on the transfer market when he swapped striker Kevin Hulme for Lincoln City's Dean West.

The 22-year-old with over 100 league appearances for the Shakers' Third Division rivals will go straight into the reckoning for Bury's tough trip to Gillingham on Saturday.

Meanwhile Gigg Lane's injured stars are on the way back with defenders Andy Woodward and Stuart Bimson successfully coming through a reserve test last night while goalkeeper Gary Kelly is set to give manager Stan Ternent a selection dilemma for Saturday's tough trip to Gillingham.

Woodward, who has not been available during Ternent's six-match reign, played the full 90 minutes of the reserves' 1-0 home defeat by Scarborough while left back Bimson suffered no reaction to the thigh strain which has kept him out for the last three matches.

Neither will be available for Saturday although Kelly, who has only played two games this season, will come into the reckoning if he gets through a second day of training today without feeling the back injury which has sidelined him for the last two games. "It's good to see players coming back because we coul do with the competition for places," said Ternent today.

"I'll wait to see how Kelly comes through today's training session before I make up my mind about the goalkeepers position for Saturday although Lee Bracey has done well for us in his absence."
