Young French star in the making at Gigg Lane

It's been a good week down at Gigg Lane with Alan Knill managing to secure Mike Jones' contract, followed by the extension of Nicky Ajose's loan period from Manchester United until January 2011. 

This obviously bodes well for the confidence of the team as they prepared for their home game with Southend United.

A 1-0 win was complicated with the injury to keeper Cameron Belford which led rookie goalie Ritchie Branagan to see out the final moments of the game. Joe Skarz was the match winner with a well taken goal.

However, despite talk about Ryan Lowe, Nicky Ajose, Mike Jones et al; one of the unsung heroes is the young Frenchman Damien Mozika. Born in Corbiel-Essones, a suburb of Paris. 

I suppose 23 years ago his family wouldn't have imagined him gracing the playing fields of England with Bury. Nevertheless the elegant midfielder is enjoying his football and just quietly getting on with his game. 

A determined solid performance against Accrington Stanley recently saw Damien achieve what he always promised.

He received unwarranted attention from the elbow of an Accy player but continues to impress. Bury boss Alan Knill looks set to offer the French midfielder a new contract at Gigg Lane.
