Byron Moore has become the fifth player to join Plymouth Argyle from a troubled Bury. FC
The 30-year-old striker has made the decision to follow his teammates and ex-manager, Ryan Lowe to Plymouth as Bury’s financial problems continue.
The striker has gone to the Pilgrims for free which is obviously another blow to the Shakers, although the players have to think of their future. When they are this close to the start of the season and the team they are playing for can’t pay them and are uncertain on their financial state. These players need to make the moves while they’ve got the opportunity. Even though it’s sad times for fans of Bury, Moore seems to have made a sensible choice by following the players and manager he already knows and respects.
What will he add to Plymouth?
The striker managed to find the back of the net 5 times in 18 appearances for the Shakers last season after he joined the club from Bristol Rovers. Imagine the goals he could provide after appearing for a full season. He should also be able to perform well as he will be a part of a stable club where he doesn’t need to worry as much about wages, headlines and behind the scenes problems.
Team and Experience
Plymouth will be taking on League two with a team of players who are used to higher league football so surely that’s a positive to think about for the club. Byron Moore has now added to that experience and he will be reunited with the manager, Ryan Lowe and players, Danny Mayor, Will Aimson, Callum McFadzean and Dom Telford. The side won’t have as much work to do then it comes to trying to gel together as a team as a handful of them already know what it’s like to work together.
It’s an unfortunate time for Bury and it will be hard to keep on hearing of these player departures, hopefully, the problems will be sorted sooner rather than later and some positive news will come.
