Born in Gorton, Manchester, Bunney worked his way through Lancaster City's youth system and broke into their first team during the 2011–12 season as the club competed in the Northern Premier League Division One North, whilst studying sports science at Myerscough College in Preston, Lancashire.
Bunney made his début as a professional at Rochdale on 27 April 2013 as a substitute in a 1–0 victory against Plymouth Argyle, on the final day of the 2012–13 season with Bunney scoring the winning goal with a header after a cross from another débutante, Scott Tanser.

On 2 September 2019, Bunney signed for Bolton Wanderers on a free transfer from Northampton Town on a contract until the end of the season. The following weekend he was involved in a road traffic collision on the M55 motorway that left him with broken ribs and a broken collarbone.
