Statement From The Chairman

18 July 2019

Today was a major day for our beloved Club, the old girl is safe. The CVA was passed so our future is secured as I said I would.

We have worked tirelessly to achieve the result today whilst taking a lot of flak, some might say our methods were questionable but we can all pass comment with hindsight, my job was to save Bury FC and that’s done, we have other hurdles but the main one is complete.

Over the coming weeks, our fans will see the truth appearing once the Police have completed their enquiries and arrests and they will realise who had the Club's best interest at heart, the facts as always will outweigh the social media spin and lies

There will be a lot to put out that will lift spirits over the coming weeks, we have 27 players in training and seeing them play we have a lot to look forward to over this season.

Over the next few days we have to tidy up outstanding issues with the EFL which we are on with, we look forward to working with the new Chair and her team.

Not to bring matters down I feel I must address the unacceptable face of football.

The social media garbage pedalled by the same few is not needed and bears no relation to the truth, I can’t see how attacking my family has anything to do with Bury FC issues but again it’s the same mindless few. As for grizzly, I loved the one with the bear and his 2 cubs on a walk, apparently it was me and my boys in Prestbury! Quality.

I am sure those of you out there who have children will understand how protective we are of our children especially when it’s nothing to do with them and the attacks are vile.

At Saturday’s match, I witnessed disgusting behaviour from a handful of fans, I would like to formally apologise to Nantwich Town for this, and explain those few do not represent our Club.

I accept emotions can run high, it’s a passionate sport, but if we can put these things behind us and all get together we will ensure our Club has a great season in unity.
