- The latest takeover negotiations for crisis club Bury have fallen through
- The club are now set to be liquidated on Tuesday with no new owner emerging
- Ex-League One club Bury were expelled from the Football League in August
The latest takeover bid for Bury has failed and liquidation on Tuesday is the next step
Bury have not played a league game this season and will likely be liquidated on Tuesday
Bury Football Club will be liquidated on Tuesday following the breakdown in last-ditch talks with a consortium to save the club.
Supporters’ group Forever Bury confirmed an interested party withdrew their bid due to the complex situation involved in redressing the club’s finances.
The former League One club were expelled from the EFL in August after financial turmoil under owner Steve Dale, but all rescue attempts have so far failed.
A statement from Forever Bury said: ‘We regret to inform the supporters of Bury Football Club that the interested party who has been working with Forever Bury on a proposed bid to buy the club has confirmed this is no longer a viable prospect for them.
‘As matters have unfolded and the necessary due diligence has been undertaken, the complex, complicated and financially distressed situation at Bury Football Club has resulted in their decision to stand back from further discussions.
‘Resulting from this news, Forever Bury will not now be putting forward a legal defence against the HMRC winding up petition on Wednesday 16th October 2019, as we believe there is no longer adequate evidence to suggest a meaningful case could be made.
‘We will update you further as developments unfold.’
