Bury has received a new offer to buy the club, and the staff has published a press release where they want the owner to sell the team.

Bury is having a bad time in the Football League One.

The team has suffered all of its matches postponed so far in the 2019-2020 season because the club has yet to provide evidence of good financial terms.

And with the English Football League (EFL) threatening the club one more time, there’s one light at the end of the tunnel.

Bury has received an offer for the club and the staff has urged owner Steve Dale to sell it.

“We can confirm that today we have received an offer for the sale of Bury Football Club, one that we all at the club believe is a very good offer,” a statement by the club’s staff read according to Four Four Two.

“This offer has been conveyed to Steve Dale and we are still waiting to hear from him.”

“This offer is the only lifeline for the future of the club and we implore Steve Dale to accept it, as it has the full backing of all of the senior staff at Bury FC,” they added.

EFL executive chair Debbie Jevans said: “We remain disappointed that we are still not in a position to reach a successful conclusion with Mr. Dale but will continue to work diligently in an effort to receive the information we require.”

“The real threat of Bury’s EFL membership being withdrawn still exists, a situation nobody – including this board – wants to see, and I sincerely hope we can find a way through these challenging circumstances for the benefit of all those who have an association with the club.”
