Board statement regarding the Official Bury FC Message Board
We are aware that there is some discontent amongst some fans in regards to the closure of the Official Bury FC Message Board, as a result of this the Board wanted to ensure fans that it wasn’t the club that was responsible for its closure.
The club were informed that the server was being de-commissioned and it was suggested that we look into re-hosting the forum elsewhere.
We fully understand the need and the desire for a forum from our fans so that you have a dedicated place where you can interact, share and discuss your views and opinions on Bury FC.
As we are striving to move onto bigger and better things as a club, it was decided that the club’s efforts will go into the development and growth of the new Bury FC Network to replace the Official Bury FC Message Board, rather than paying another company to host one on our behalf.
As a result of the closure of the Message Board, the Bury FC Network will be free of charge to fans.
For those who don’t know much about the Bury FC Network, it’s our newly developed exclusive social network for Bury Football Club.
As a club we want the Bury FC Network to be a place where Shakers fans can come together and share their passion, ideas and opinions about Bury Football Club, with the aim to build a community that is dedicated to the growth and development of our club.
The benefits of the Network will be that fans can interact with one another and voice their opinions, as well as being able to gain access to club content such as; player, management and board interviews, new signings news, competitions, away meeting point details, the ability to create and join groups and much much more.
It is our intention once the new season begins to start posting match day updates on the Network such as, team sheets, minute by minute match action, pre and post-match interviews & match highlights.
You will also be able to download our match day programmes or simply view them online.
We see the Network as the perfect tool for improving fan engagement and communication as we push towards increasing attendance at all of our games.
The site is easy to use but is still in development, so please don’t be too harsh if it doesn’t do what you want at first, we very much see the Bury FC Network developing and continuing to grow over the coming weeks and months. If any users wish to share their ideas and feedback with us on how we can improve the Network so it meets fans needs it would be very much welcomed.
Now it’s over to you guys to help us make the Bury FC Network become a pivotal part of Bury’s development and bright future…
