Bury next manager odds
Bury next manager after Ryan Lowe
Who is the favourite to be the next Bury manager?
After previous Bury manager Ryan Lowe left the post to join Plymouth, Bury are currently in the hunt for a new manager after being newly promoted to the EFL League One. Here, we’ll look at the favourites for the job and see who would be the best fit for the club. Some of the favourites are Frankie Bunn, Keith Hill, Chester’s Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley, Derek Adams and Russel Slade. These names have all been linked to the vacancy at Bury as each of these would be a good addition to the coaching staff at Bury.
The bookies’ favourite for the job is free agent Frankie Bunn. Bunn has been without a job since December 2018 after he was sacked from his post at Oldham Athletic. He is a 56 year old manager from Birmingham, England and would be easy for Bury to sign as he’s currently a free agent. One of the many reasons Bury have been linked to Frankie Bunn is the fact that his son, Harry Bunn is currently playing for Bury so he would easily acclimate to the club.
Another name that has been linked to the club is Keith Hill. Hill has been a free agent since the summer of 2019 and would, therefore, be easy enough for any club to sign. The 50 year old manager’s previous jobs include Barnsley and two stints at Rochdale and would definitely be interested in the vacant job at Bury.
Chester coaches Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley have both said they’re not in the running for the Bury job, however, things change very quickly in football and who knows what could happen. Johnson and Morley are the join managers of Chester FC and either one of them could be interested if an offer came in from Bury.
Derek Adams and Russel Slade are both currently without a job after leaving their respective jobs of Plymouth Argyle and Grimsby Town. Neither manager will want to stay as a free agent for much longer and would definitely be interested if the right offer came from League One side Bury. Derek Adams has only been without a job for a few months whereas Russel Slade has been out of a job for over a year now. Both of these managers have a lot of experience which would be crucial for Bury as they look to survive the drop from League One.
