Ex-Newcastle United midfielder Clark took control of the Shakers in March and secured their League One status on the final day of the season.
But he was backed heavily in the summer as 27 new faces arrived at Gigg Lane, with ambitions of a top six-finish this campaign.

“I’ll take my time but I won’t take too long,” Day told Express Sport.
“The key will be to get the right person in and we hope to have that done before the Gillingham match in two weeks’ time.
Bury are second-bottom of League One
“The Woking game this weekend is key for us. We want to do well in the FA Cup and the financial rewards are substantial for this football club.
“It was not a lengthy decision. Based on recent results it was not good enough and we had to take action.”
