Forever Bury Have Met With Club Officials To Discuss The Future Of The Club

Following on from the club being promoted into League One talks now turn to concerns of the clubs financial troubles.

In a statement Forever Bury have said:

"All Bury fans will be concerned about the financial troubles at Gigg Lane and over the last several weeks Forever Bury have been looking into how we can help in the current situation.

Today, representatives from Forever Bury and Club officials have had a business meeting that covered a wide range of topics relating to the current situation. Following frank discussions, Forever Bury are now able to inform you that the Club have received a number of expressions of interest from parties wishing to purchase the Club As of this moment in time, a number of these parties are undertaking a due diligence process. Because of these developments, the Club are confident that should a takeover not be completed by the Winding Up Partition on the 15 May, a deferment at the court hearing is likely to allow a purchase to be finalised.

Because of the sensitive nature of the current negotiations between the parties involved, Forever Bury are not able to make further comment at this time.

As well as meeting with Club officials today, Forever Bury has had meaningful discussions with Supporters Direct, Bury Council Leader Rishi Shori and the EFL. In addition, the Asset of Community Value on Gigg Lane is in the process of being re-registered.

Forever Bury will update members and supporters on future developments as soon as we are able.

What Forever Bury needs is an influx of new members and certainly proactive members. Together we can make a difference.

Finally, a massive congratulations to everyone at Bury FC for the wonderful season culminating in the well-deserved promotion to League One."
