Bury FC have yet to make a statement and nothing is currently showing on the website.

We cannot say for sure at this time what all this means for Bury FC, with no one interested in buying the club and no games, no income, someone has to pay for the stadium and the on going running costs.

The English Football League have said though perviously that if they were expelled from the league they are in, that the club could return but probably in a semi-pro league from season 20/21

All fans of football will be feeling worried about this club sinking faster than the titanic, and watching with concern at Bolton Wanderers to see what happens to them, if they go under the entire world of football will be rocked.

People will wake up to the reality of how messed up the business side of football is, where the huge Premier League clubs continue to get wealthy and the smaller clubs become poorer.

Fans of Bury FC were seen crying after getting the bad news outside the Gigg Lane ground last night, fans had also helped out with getting the stadium ready for the next game which is now a waisted effort.

Debbie Jevans CBE, EFL Executive Chair, said: “Today is undoubtedly one of the darkest days in the League’s recent history. The EFL has worked determinedly and tirelessly to avoid this outcome and it is with a heavy heart that this situation has been forced upon us.

“The EFL has to place the integrity of our competitions at the heart of every decision we make, and we simply cannot allow this unacceptable situation to continue or countenance the prospect of postponing further fixtures.

“I understand this will be a deeply upsetting and devastating time for Bury’s players, staff, supporters and the wider community. There is no doubt today’s news will be felt across the entire football family.

“No one wanted to be in this position but following repeated missed deadlines, the suspension of five League fixtures, in addition to not receiving the evidence we required in regard to financial commitments and a possible takeover not materialising; the EFL Board has been forced to take the most difficult of decisions.”
