Bury are targeting a National League return for next season.
The Sun says owner Steve Dale has amazingly revealed he is waiting for the FA to put his club into the National League for next season.
And Dale would be prepared to step down as chairman of the expelled EFL outfit to make it happen.
He said, “We have lodged an application with the FA to be placed into a league for next season.
“Due to being the chairman when the club was removed from the EFL, I might have to step down to satisfy the National League's entry criteria and I'm prepared to do that."
