Richard Wilkins is to enter the transfer market to freshen up his Bury Town team after a dismal defeat to Whitehawk on Saturday.

The Blues were outplayed on their own patch for the first time in almost two seasons, with the Bury chief singling out every one of his side as having under performed.

Without a win in their three Ryman Premier games since September 15, Bury have slipped to ninth, forcing Wilkins to seek fresh faces.

“The players have had a few home truths given to them,” said the Blues’ boss. “There are two or three players on the radar and that defeat has made my mind up that we have to go and get them.

“One thing we ask for, and that the fans ask for, is 100 per cent commitment, and no-one got it.”

Meanwhile, one player Wilkins is hopeful of keeping hold of is midfielder Craig Parker, who is set to return to parent club Chelmsford City after tomorrow’s home clash with Lewes (3pm), unless an extension to the deal can be agreed with the Conference South outfit.

Reflecting further on the Whitehawk defeat, Wilkins added: “After the second goal, I felt a few people threw in the towel, which is not what Bury teams are like, it was like men versus boys.”

Bury also travel to East Thurrock United on Tuesday (7.45pm), who they beat in March in last season’s Alan Boon Ryman League Cup Final at Staines FC.
