Steven Schumacher returns to Bury as first-team coach


Former Bury midfielder Steven Schumacher hasbeen appointed as the club's new first-team coach.

Chris Lucketti left his role as manager earlier this week after just 55 days in charge at Gigg Lane and assistant Joe Parkinson also left the club. Ryan Lowe and Ryan Kidd were placed in charge of the Shakers until the end of the season. “Former Shaker Steven Schumacher has returned to Bury as first-team coach,” Bury confirmed on their official website. “Steven will work closely with Ryan Lowe and Ryan Kidd as the Shakers look to escape the relegation zone and secure their place in League One for next season.” Schumacher spent nearly three years as a player with Bury until May 2013 when he left to join Fleetwood and was captain during the promotion-winning campaign from League Two in 2010/11.
