Paul Wilkinson has left Truro City to become the new manager of League One side Bury.
The former Everton and Middlesbrough striker became City’s permanent boss earlier last month on a two-year deal, but has now returned to the Football League where he previously worked as Grimsby Town’s assistant and had a stint as caretaker manager at Northampton Town.
Wilkinson took over at Truro in March after Leigh Robinson was axed although couldn’t save the White Tigers from relegation.
On joining Bury, Wilkinson said: “I’m delighted to be here, Bury is a club with a great history and I can’t wait to get started. I’m determined to drive the club forward in the right direction.”
General manager Scott Johnson added: “It’s such a strong foot forward, Paul is a manager with a wealth of experience, something that is modern day and is exactly what we need and is required for League One football.”
