Bury have completed the signing of Niall Maher, who moves to Gigg Lane on a free transfer following his release by Bolton.

Maher joined Wanderers at the age of 10 and progressed through the club's academy, before going on to make a total of five senior appearances after breaking into the first-team at the end of last season.

He was sent off in his final outing for the Trotters, in a 2-1 defeat at Cardiff City on April 23, so will be unavailable for the Shakers' opening game of the 2016/17 League One campaign.

Maher has signed a 12-month contract at Gigg and could potentially face his former employers when Wanderers make the short journey across Lancashire on October 22.
