Paddy Kenny leaves Bury after just 13 days.

Former QPR and Leeds United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has cancelled his seven-week contract at League One side Bury after just 13 days following an injury to his calf.

The former Republic of Ireland international would not be fit enough to play before his contract expires at the end of January 2016.

Kenny approached the clubs management staff and requested for his contract to be terminated as he did not feel he was earning his wages fairly.

Bury are now left with three goalkeepers including the former Bolton Wanderers academy product, Rob Lainton who has been at Gigg Lane since 2013, Scottish youngster Jack Ruddy and Stoke City’s on loan 21-year old, Daniel Bachmann.

Bury manager David Flitcroft spoke to the Belfest telegraph saying: “Paddy only had a seven week contract, we weren’t expecting it, but Paddy came to see us and said that he loves the Club, he loves the fact we gave him an opportunity, but he doesn’t feel like he is going to earn his money now he is injured.

“Quite incredibly he has decided he wants to cancel the contract. Incredibly he had guaranteed money there, but he has said he can’t take money off the football club, which is quite a unique circumstance.”
