Bury’s League One clash with Tranmere suspended as club’s financial situation worsens

Bury have had another match – their fourth in League One – suspended as the EFL continue to seek further clarity about the club’s financial obligations.

Saturday’s game with Tranmere has been put on hold while the Shakers’ Carabao Cup first round tie has been awarded to Sheffield Wednesday as Friday’s deadline for league expulsion draws closer.

“The EFL board continues to be frustrated at the lack of significant progress that has been made by Mr (Steve) Dale in providing the information required,” said an EFL statement.

“However, we will continue to work with the current ownership in an attempt to achieve a resolution ahead of the Notice of Withdrawal deadline of Friday August 23.”

The news comes after reports claimed owner Steve Dale has turned down an offer for the League One side which could have saved the club, according to reports.

According to the BBC, the new and improved offer was made by a former chairman.

So far, the Shakers have had five games cancelled by the EFL this season and face expulsion from League One on August 23.

Dale allegedly told the former chairman he feels he can get a better deal for the club, even though the threat of being kicked out still looms large.
