Lee Clark sacked as Bury manager


Bury have sacked manager Lee Clark after eight months in the job.

Clark's last match in charge was Saturday's 1-0 defeat by Doncaster and was Bury's fourth successive defeat. Clark leaves the club with them 23rd in the League One table with 12 points from 16 games.

Clark, 45, won only nine of his 33 games as Shakers boss after leaving Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock to take charge at Gigg Lane in February.

Assistant manager Alan Thompson has also left the club, with player-coach Ryan Lowe put in interim charge.

Clark helped keep Bury in League One last season after taking over with the club 21st in the table, but they are already three points adrift of safety this campaign.

"I have enjoyed my time at Bury enormously and I wish the board, the players and the supporters all the very best for this season and beyond," Clark told the club website.
