Statement From Bury Football Club Lawyer

3 August 2019

The lawyer working with the Club has sent the following statement after the EFL's decision last night:

It was very disappointing to have been informed by The English Football League (EFL) late yesterday evening, that they have postponed Bury Football Club’s fixture with Accrington Stanley. This decision was made despite providing them with the proof of funding documentation, agreeing with The PFA on footballer debt and having already satisfied the safety requirements for the stadium two weeks ago.

We had the weekend to resolve any issues before the EFL cancelled the Accrington Stanley game. As of today, we still have not received those questions and we are waiting for the EFL to provide them in order that the club can respond. This would then allow Bury Football Club to start the season. The actions from the EFL are causing immeasurable damage to Bury Football Club.
