Football News 24/7
Bury's new owner Stewart Day, who was yesterday revealed to be a property "entrepreneur", specialising in student accommodation and developments in Lancashire and Yorkshire has wasted no time in putting a new structure together.

The club have confirmed the appointment of Glenn Thomas as the club’s new chief executive officer, along with the names of two further directors on the board.

A statement revealed that Thomas’s role will be to develop the club’s brand while working closely with the Bury Community Trust and youth department.

It is not yet clear how his job, or any of the other appointments announced today, will affect the position of the club’s current general manager, Jill Neville.

The other two directors appointed to the board are Ian Kendall, as chief operational officer, and corporate lawyer Gisella Alberici.

Kendall, who is understood to have had links with Huddersfield Town and Oldham Athletic, and is managing director of a company called Health and Leisure Solutions, will take over the day-to-day running of the club.

A statement from Bury said that Alberici, who works for Manchester firm Ratio Law and helped to broker the takeover deal, brings a wealth of experience in property and commercial law.
