League Two strugglers Bury have today parted company with manager Kevin Blackwell following a run of poor results.

The former Sheffield United chief, who took charge at Gigg Lane in September 2012, has been unable to turnaround the Shakers fortunes.

He failed to keep Bury in League One last season and they are currently without a win in their last six outings and sit 21st in the League Two table.

A statement on Bury’s official website this morning confirmed Blackwell’s contract has been terminated with immediate effect.
