Bury bring in Ashley Eastham on loan from Blackpool

Ashley Eastham

Eastham made nine appearances on loan at Cheltenham last season

Bury have signed Blackpool defender Ashley Eastham on a six-month loan.

The 20-year-old has made just three appearances for the Tangerines, including being sent off in the Carling Cup defeat against Sheffield Wednesday .

Shakers manager Richie Barker wanted to bring in a defender after letting Ben Futcher join Mansfield on loan and with Mark Hughes out injured.

Eastham has had loan stints at Hyde, Cheltenham and Carlisle and signed a new one-year contract this summer.
