Bury FC announce they're out of administration

Bury FC have announced they're out of administration and will return to play football at Gigg Lane.

Bury were expelled from the Football League in August 2019 in a move that was expected to spell the end for the 134-year-old club.

However, a consortium led by fan group Est. 1885 moved closer to regaining control of their old stadium in January of this year.

As well as owning Gigg Lane - which has been home to the club since its foundation - it meant that the fan group could trade as Bury FC and acquire the club's history and memorabilia.

While the latest developments have seen Bury FC take another step closer to returning to the football pyramid.

Bury FC released a statement that read: "After Bury Football Club Supporters' Society successfully rallied together to buy Gigg Lane, and the intellectual property, history and memorabilia of Bury Football Club out of administration, The Shakers are finally coming back after their tragic expulsion from the English Football League in 2019.

"With the help of generous benefactors, the club is now in safe hands. Using the successful German model of 51:49 ownership, we (the Supporters' Society) make up the 51% majority while the benefactors, Bury fans themselves, are the 49%.

"The club and stadium can never fall out of our hands again and we are now working hard to bring elite men's football back to the town through negotiations with the FA."
