Statement: New Chairman Appointed

29 May 2013

Mr Stewart Day confirmed as Shakers new chairman

Bury Football Club are delighted to announce that Mr Stewart Day has been appointed as the new chairman of Bury Football Club.

Speaking to, Chairman Mr Day said:-

‘I am extremely proud to take over the role and responsibility of putting Bury Football Club back onto a strong football and financial footing.

After spending the last three weeks in the due diligence process, I am delighted to officially confirm my position at the club.

Over the next few days the new board of directors will be announced and key appointments made.

The vision is to secure long term football at Gigg Lane at the highest level and this will take the support and commitment of all members of Bury Football Club, from the fans to the car park attendant

Bury Football Club needs the on-going support of the local business community as well as the tremendous fan base that has been left frustrated for so many years

I have taken time with Kevin Blackwell and have been very impressed with his level of professionalism and most of all his determination to see his experience supported to attract the best possible players.

I will support Kevin to achieve this, however we must remember that at all times we must never allow this club to be in this financial position again.  With this in mind, changes will be made in all departments as well as improving facilities both at the ground and improving the quality of our training facility

The new board will bring a variety of professionalism and experience within different sectors to support my vision to ensure that we will be fighting for championship football.

Step one is to stop the rot and to start from a clean page.  Over the next few weeks we will welcome supporters to the club in a series of question and answer sessions in order to allow everyone the chance to express their opinions and allow their furstrations to be released.

All I am asking is to be judged on the way forward and ask for your on-going support.

The quest for Bury FC is to now secure the best possible players within our five year plan.

We will not be forced into making decisions that is not in the best interest of this club.  Over the coming weeks many names will be linked to us, but unless the signing are right, we will not be signing them.

The squad is bare and we welcome any interested parties to make contact, but there will be no knee jerk reactions.

Let the new chapter begin

Thank you for your support

The Chairman

Finally, join the Shakers revolution - take your place at Gigg Lane - together we will rise
