Bury Football Club can confirm that due to the EFL not receiving the requested information from Chairman Steven Dale, further fixtures have been postponed.
On Tuesday, the EFL postponed this Saturday’s home clash with Gillingham, while issuing a deadline of today for the trip to Rotherham, due to be played on the 20th of August. The information the EFL require is still outstanding, and thus the Rotherham fixture has been suspended.
Due to the build-up of suspended fixtures, the EFL maintain that they can’t keep suspending games indefinitely and therefore the withdrawal of membership is still in place, with the deadline being the 23rd of August. Given the number of suspended fixtures, we have been referred to a Disciplinary Commission by the EFL.
As we are due to take on Tranmere Rovers on the 24th of August, the EFL will decide as to whether that fixture will go ahead in the early part of next week.
We can also confirm that we have ‘been served with a notice of charge’ after failing to fulfil the cup tie with Sheffield Wednesday earlier this week. The EFL have given us until the 21st of August to respond to this. At this stage the EFL will either deal with the matter themselves or refer it to a Disciplinary Commission under EFL Regulations.
As a Club, we are working tirelessly to find a solution to the current issues we are facing with the EFL. We would like to thank supporters for their patience and understanding at this frustrating time for all involved with Bury Football Club.
