Ryan Lowe and Ryan Kidd replace sacked Chris Lucketti at Buryby Jack Kitson / 15 January 2018, 10:10Tweet
Bury have axed boss Chris Lucketti after just 10 games in charge, spanning less than two months, with his assistant Joe Parkinson also leaving the club.
The League One strugglers decided to wield the axe after Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at home to Charlton left the club 12 points adrift of safety at the foot of the table.
The Shakers have not wasted any time in finding a replacement after they opted to appoint Ryan Lowe and Ryan Kidd until the end of the season, with their first game at the helm away to Oxford on Saturday.
Earlier this season Lowe oversaw six games in a caretaker capacity, winning two, drawing two and losing two. Meanwhile, Kidd was joint-caretaker with Chris Brass back in 2016, however they lost all four games as a double act.
Lucketti will no doubt be disappointed at his brief tenure, having only taken charge of Bury back in November following the departure of Lee Clark.
Lucketti, who helped the club win promotion as a player, drew his first game in charge against Northampton, which was followed by a cup victory away to Walsall.
However, since that win in early December his side have endured a torrid eight game losing streak, seven of which have come in League One, meaning he now leaves the club having failed to win a single league game.
Bury find themselves five points behind 23rd-placed Rochdale, and 12 points off safety, with a total of 57 points still on offer from now until the end of the season.
