Chris Brass Latest To Be Linked With Bury

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 14 August 2012, 09:43

Chris Brass has emerged as the new favourite to replace Richie Barker at Bury. The League One club have been searching for a manager since Barker departed for Crawley Town last week. Brass, a former Bury player and caretaker manager, is currently priced at 11/10 in the Next Bury Manager betting market, while former players Andy Morrell and David Flitcroft are both available at 4/1. Chorley FC boss Garry Flitcroft can be found at 7/1, while Bury’s assistant manager, Peter Shirtliff, can be backed at 8/1.

Brass played for the The Shakers at the end of his career, making 29 appearances for the club. In January 2008 he became their caretaker manager for short while after Chris Casper was given the boot, and then a year later he was appointed assistant manager to Alan Knill. Brass is currently working under Knill at fellow League One side Scunthorpe United after the duo left Bury in March 2011.

Brass’ first, and to date, only job in management was at York City back in 2003 when he was appointed player-manager at the tender age of 27. His first season in charge of the club ended in disappointment, with York suffering relegation down to the Football Conference after failing to win any of their final 20 matches. He was then sacked in November 2004 after a poor start to the season.

Time is running out for Bury to appoint a new manager before the start of the 2012/13 League One season. They open up their campaign on Saturday when they welcome Brentford to Gigg Lane. Bury are a long shot at 25/1 with Paddy Power to win promotion to the Championship at the end of the season, while they have odds of just 13/8 to get relegated!
