Bury will not be re-admitted to Football League next season

Bury will not be re-admitted to the EFL season following a meeting involving the 71 member nightclubs on Thursday.
EFL clubs have also agreed in principle that one club is going to be relegated from League Two this year.
Bury were expelled from League One and the EFL past month after the fall of a takeover after the postponement of the initial five fixtures following the Shakers were not able to give evidence of their capacity.
An EFL announcement stated:”During today’s meeting, the EFL and its member clubs debated and considered several options, with all clubs given the chance to air their views.
“The debate included consideration of this proposal submitted by the Bury FC Rescue Board for the club to be admitted into League Two under new ownership in season 2020-21.
“Following in-depth talks, it became apparent that the proposition did not have the essential support and EFL clubs slated expanding the existing principle of a decrease in relegation across all divisions as a way of returning to 72 clubs today and for the future”
The Rescue Board, chaired by Bury North MP James Frith, had sentenced to EFL associates to support a”compassionate re-entry” to the club, but their plea fell on deaf ears.
“While we’re saddened that Bury FC is no longer part of their EFL, ” the board’s tough decision to draw membership was only taken after every chance to discover a resolution was drained,” EFL executive seat Debbie Jevans said.
“Since then, in spite of the efforts made on behalf of their team, the EFL has participated with supporters’ groups, shared their own entries together with our members and debated at length the issues raised.
“After the discussion [on Thursday], nightclubs have established the preferred way of travel is to reduce relegation from League Two as a means of returning to 72 clubs. The clubs felt thatin a challenging situation, this strategy keeps equity for many members and upholds the principle of the football pyramid.”
Meanwhile, the clubs have backed the appointment of Liverpool and also Premier League chief executive Rick Parry since the newest EFL chairman.
