Former Mildenhall Town midfielder Gareth Simpson is the latest player to join Ben Chenery's Bury Town squad ahead of the new 2018-19 season. Gareth won the league and cup double at Mildenhall two years ago and stayed for their first ever season at step 4, but has opted to join the Blues ahead of the new season. He has also represented Norwich, Gillingham, Cambridge City, Sudbury, Needham Market and Wroxham. 

Simpson joins Jake Kerins in also switching from Recreation Way to Ram Meadow over the summer and boss Ben Chenery had to say: "I am very pleased Gareth is joining us, he will bring us valuable experience in what is a young team and his team mates will benefit from that. He had a good season at this level last season and had other options but he wanted to join us which is pleasing. I am excited by the players we have brought in over the summer and soon they will get the chance to play together as we begin to get ready for the new season. 

The Blues are in action twice next week when they travel to Maldon & Tiptree FC to take on Colchester United's Under 23 side on Monday evening and then on Wednesday it is a short trip to Thurlow Nunn League side Hadleigh United, kick off 7:45pm.
