Bury rename Gigg Lane under sponsorship deal

League Two Bury are to rename their Gigg Lane home as The JD Stadium as part of a three-year sponsorship deal with JD Sports. The Shakers have been based at Gigg Lane since their formation in 1885, and have never before renamed the ground.

Bury were in serious financial trouble last season and only narrowly avoided administration earlier this year.

Stewart Day, who completed his takeover of the Shakers in May, told the club's website:"This is an amazing deal for Bury Football Club and highlights the hard work being put in behind the scenes to secure the future of this great club.

"I hope our many loyal fans appreciate the progress being made to ensure financial security at the club."
