Leon Clarke

The 30 year-old joined Bury over the summer signing a two year deal and comes with a great deal of know-how and quality, having spent his 12 year career at the top levels of English football. The prolific striker has scored 91 goals from his 197 appearances and is a key addition to the squad to the coming season.

Big and strong, Leon will prove to be more than a handful as he spearheads the Shakers attack going into the new season.  His experience will be called upon by the Shakers heading into the new season.



NASSER EL KHAYATI has hit the top of the Albion goal scoring list as he nettied for the second consecutive game to give Burton Albion the win against Oldham. He is now on 5 goals. STUART BEAVON is joint top of the list with Nasser as he sits on 5 goals.

LEON CLARKE is the Shakers' leading goal scorer so far this season with 11 goals in all competitions. Striker TOM POPE is on six goals so far this season being Bury's second top goal scorer.
