Lowe thanks Crewe for allowing him to return to Bury in Player-Coach role.
Ryan Lowe, 38, has agreed a mutual termination of his contract with Crewe Alexandra with immediate effect in order to rejoin Bury in a playing/coaching role.
Lowe has thanked Crewe Alexandra Football Club for allowing him to return to Bury for a third spell.
He said: “I would just like to thank Dave (Artell), Kenny (Lunt) and others at Crewe Alexandra for allowing me to return to Bury. I have a long association with Bury and they understood that it was an opportunity that I really couldn’t turn down.
"Coaching is something I want to get involved in and everyone knows that Bury holds a special place in my heart.
“I was out of contract in the summer, and at my age, I had to look towards the future. It is just a shame that the opportunity has come now.
"I didn’t want my Crewe career to end that way and I can only thank the Club and the fans for everything they have done for me. I’ve always enjoyed my time at Crewe and the fans have always been great with me.
“It was a chance that may never have come again and I can only thank people at Crewe for not standing in my way. I appreciate the way they have handled the situation and I only wish them all the best for the rest of the season and beyond.
“I know they have enough to get the wins they will need and wish them all the best."
