Why would he leave a team who has just been promoted you ask?

Well things haven’t been great as many know behinds the scenes of Bury with Lowe, his staff and players not being paid over the last few months due to big financial problems.

In an interview with The Football League Paper, he said: “We’ve done our bit. Now it’s time for the club to find a solution. The club needs an investor or a new owner.

“It’s up for sale and I hope it’s resolved very soon because I’ve got players effectively out of contract as of yesterday.

“They want to know where they stand, and so do I. We’ve all gone a couple of months without pay and we’ve all got to look after our families.

“I ain’t in no rush to leave and nor is anybody else. As long as the finances get resolved, I’m happy.

“But there’s a deadline on everything isn’t there? And there’ll come a point where all of us – myself, my staff, the players – become available.

“I certainly don’t want to do that. I love the club, but nobody can last long without money at this level.”
