    Dear Friends and Supporters,

    We are asking fellow football supporters to help Bury Football Club fans rebuild by donating to their cause here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-rebuild-bury

    As you will have seen, the past few months have been extraordinarily difficult for everyone associated with Bury Football Club. The outpouring of support for our town has been incredibly touching, and we thank every single one of you for the messages and actions of support that we have received. Our community is grieving and will continue to grieve in the weeks and months to come.

    It is an unfathomable thing for our football club to disappear overnight and has left a gaping hole in the heart of our community that will take us time to repair: this isn’t just about the 90 minutes on a Saturday afternoon, but all the friendships and connections that happen off the field too.

    This repair process cannot be undertaken alone and does not exist in isolation. It is not just Bury that is under threat: football clubs across the country could face a similar fate.

    Forever Bury would greatly appreciate your continued support as our town continues to heal. We cannot allow the story of Bury to fade away as the season continues. You, the wider footballing family needs to stand up and shout about what has happened over the past few months and ensure that the story of Bury FC does not become the new normal for other clubs up and down the country.

    There are still serious questions to be asked of the EFL and their role in this process. However, we believe that the best option for this moment in time is to have open and positive discussions with the EFL. We are under no illusion that the football club has spent beyond its means over the last few years but punishing everyday supporters, community and local economy for something that is beyond our control is unjust.

    As such, as fans of Bury FC, we would greatly appreciate it if you were to support us. All monies donated via our GoFundMe page will be used by Forever Bury to:

    1) to pay the legal and other associated costs and charges incidental to developing a proposal which can be put to Football League to allow Bury FC to work towards re-entry to League;

    2) if necessary, to pay the legal and other associated costs and charges to challenge the decision and conduct of the English Football League;

    3) to pay the legal and other associated costs and charges incidental to working with 3rd parties in whatever way we can to rebuild Bury FC for the future; or

    4) to provide day-to-day funding for Forever Bury going forward so that Forever Bury can continue the legacy and history of Bury FC as we think appropriate and continue our campaign for reform and better regulation to ensure the sustainable future of the football community.

    The membership and directors of Forever Bury reserve the right to vote and choose one of the four options listed above.

    You can help further by signing the petition here: https://www.change.org/p/debbie-jevans-efl-efl-bring-back-bury-fc

    Once more, thank you for your support in recent weeks. It has been a bright spark in a series of otherwise dark days and shows the good that our football family can do when we come together.

    Kind Regards,
    Forever Bury Supporters Trust

    ok done. Signed the petition too. I do think the EFL need to be held to account though, it's ultimately their fault for not following their own rules on who owns/runs a club.

    Don't think you can blame the supporters on that one mucker. After all, they're the ones who are picking up the pieces of a few greedy, fuckwit chancers.

    The EFL did not agree to the takeover by Dale, that is part of the problem. They are powersless to stop shares being sold.

    Don't know if you or any fellow shakers are interested, but because of VAR @squirtyflower is selling his season ticket to the Etihad. Drop him a pm - I've already offered him a tenner but not recieved a response so I think you're looking at around twenty quid at least.

    I can think of about a thousand charities in the UK alone that I would rather give much needed funds to,rather than a failed local football team. Judging by the number of responses to Bury Forever on this thread,I think a majority of City fans think the same as me.

    Good luck.

    As well as being a City seasoncard holder of 40 years I also follow Darlington FC (long story, Im a Manc btw) and put into their funds every month so cant afford to help Im afraid.

    What I would say is being fan owned is great, frustrating but youre in charge making decisions you want.

    Hope you can keep the ground, that is key, also hoping the guy who destroyed you gets all he deserves.......Karmas a bitch.
