After finding the net 20 times in 50 matches and being named Player of the Year for relegated Tranmere Rovers last season, veteran striker Ryan Lowe has re-signed for Bury for an undisclosed fee.

The 35-year-old had a year left on his contract at Prenton Park but chose to transfer back to the Shakers, with whom he won promotion to League 1 in 2010/11.

Overall he scored 53 goals in 100 games during his first spell with Bury and that included 28 in the promotion-winning campaign, which featured a club-record run of nine consecutive goalscoring matches.

Lowe may be entering the latter stages of his career but he proved last season in Sky Bet League 1 that he still has what it takes, and Bury's decision to bring in him to kick-start what looks like a revolution at Gigg Lane seems wise.

The front man wasted no time in praising the quality of his new team-mates when signing, telling the Bury Times: "There is a lot of quality in the squad - a lot of these lads could play at League 1 level comfortably already, so I can't wait to get started."

Striker Lowe isn't the only player that has returned to Bury as Nicky Adams has also re-joined the club on a three-year deal.

Winger Adams started his career with the Shakers and scored 14 goals in 77 league appearances before moving up The Football League to Leicester City, prior to spells with Brentford, Rochdale, Crawley Town and Rotherham United.
