Football - Pratt departs Gigg Lane

Bury have announced teenage forward Tom Pratt has had his contract mutually terminated.

The 18-year-old leaves the club having made just two appearances, both of which came as a substitute in the latter stages of last year.

The Shakers also confirmed full-back duo Shaun Beeley and Dean Howell would be returning to Fleetwood, while fellow loanee Scott Harrison is back with Sunderland following the expiry of his loan.

Beeley was a regular at the JD Stadium until he suffered a hamstring injury while Howell played eight times, but boss David Flitcroft has decided against extending the pair's deals.
