Beast back at Bury after Crusaders release
Brian Jensen spent the 2017/18 season with Crusaders in Northern Ireland and helped them win the Premiership title. However that didn’t earn him a longer stay and he found himself released at the end of the season.
Expressing his disappointment, he said at the time: “Crusaders have other plans and I accept that. I’ve really enjoyed my time there and the next step for me would have been Champions League football.
“I would have played on for another year but of course I respect manager Stephen Baxter’s decision. It’s nice though to go out on a high after winning the title, my first one.”
He’s wasted no time in getting fixed up and has today returned to Bury, for whom he had a spell after leaving Burnley. He’s joined them as goalkeeping coach which means, at almost 43, he’s hanging up his playing boots and gloves.
“This is my first full time coaching position,” he said. “I’m here to learn and I’m really looking forward to it.” He’s signed a two year contract with the recently relegated club.
Jensen, of course, was with Burnley for a decade. Signed by Stan Ternent in the summer of 2003, he was with us until the end of the 2012/13 season. During his time at Burnley he made 310 appearances, his last coming as a late substitute in the final game of that season against Ipswich.Share this page :
