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

Bury won’t be re-admitted to the EFL season after a meeting involving the 71 member clubs on Thursday.
EFL clubs also have agreed in principle that only 1 club will be relegated this year.
Bury were expelled following the meltdown of a takeover after the postponement of their initial five fixtures following the Shakers were unable to offer proof of the ability month from League One and the EFL.
An EFL announcement stated:”During the meeting, the EFL and its member clubs considered and debated several choices, with clubs given the chance to air their viewpoints.
“The argument included consideration of this proposal submitted by the Bury FC Rescue Board for the club to be admitted into League 2 under new ownership in season 2020-21.
“Following in-depth discussions, it became evident that the proposition did not have the necessary support and that EFL clubs favoured extending the present principle of a reduction in relegation across all divisions as a way of returning to 72 clubs now and for the future”
The Rescue Board, chaired by Bury North MP James Frith, had sentenced to EFL associates to support some”compassionate re-entry” to the team, but their plea fell on deaf ears.
“While we are saddened that Bury FC is no more a part of the EFL, the board hard choice to withdraw membership was only taken after every opportunity to discover a resolution was drained,” EFL executive seat Debbie Jevans said.
“Since then, in recognition of their efforts made on behalf of the team, the EFL has engaged with supporters’ groups, shared their entries with our associates and debated at length the problems raised.
“Following the debate [on Thursday], nightclubs have established the preferred direction of travel is to decrease relegation from League twice as a means of returning to 72 clubs. The clubs felt thatin a difficult situation, this approach keeps equity for many members and upholds the principle of the football pyramid.”
The clubs have endorsed the planned appointment of former Liverpool and Premier League chief executive Rick Parry since the EFL chairman.
