Bury stun fans by signing player with huge international and Champions League experience

Bury stun fans by signing player Efe Ambrose with huge international and Champions League experience to his name.

The 35 year old has previously played for the likes of Nigerian clubs Kaduna United and Bayelsa United, Israeli outfit Ashdod, Scottish sides Celtic, Hibernian, Livingston, St Johnstone and Dunfermline Athletic, Greenock Morton and English club Derby County.

Ambrose has also played for the Nigeria national football team, representing them at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup, the Summer Olympics, the Africa Cup of Nations, and the FIFA World Cup.


We are delighted to announce that experienced centre-back Efe Ambrose will join Dave McNabb’s Shakers for the 2024/25 season.

The 35-year-old joins the club after leaving Scottish club Queen of the South this summer.

Ambrose spent five years at Celtic between 2012 & 2017, making over 100 appearances and won the Scottish Premiership four times in that period.

He also has 51 caps to his name for his country Nigeria and won the AFCON in 2013.

Dave McNabb had the following to say about his defender:

“A ball playing centre half with an unbelievable pedigree and huge experience with over 50 international caps and over 400 professional appearances

Efe is a great character and will certainly help some of the younger players in the squad.

It’s a brilliant signing for the club and one I hope will excite the fans”

Welcome to Bury, Efe.
