Bury FC

Bury have been expelled by the English Football League after a takeover bid from C&N Sporting Risk collapsed.

The League One club had been given until 17:00 BST on Tuesday to complete the deal, having been granted an extension to Friday's initial deadline.

Bury are the first team to drop out of the EFL since Maidstone's liquidation in 1992.

League One will comprise 23 clubs for the rest of the season, with only three teams to be relegated.

"When the news broke at Gigg Lane, fans instantly let out a huge cry - for help, of disbelief," said BBC Radio Manchester's Mike Minay.

"Fans walked away in instant tears, some crouching down to the floor."

EFL executive chair Debbie Jevans said it was "one of the darkest days" in the league's history, and added: "I understand this will be a deeply upsetting and devastating time for Bury's players, staff, supporters and the wider community.

"There is no doubt today's news will be felt across the entire football family."

They've done something very odd. They've sold off all the car parking spaces on long term leases.

A space at Gigg Lane - £5k.

£10k according to the local rag in 2014: "The car park at the club provides a stable yield and strong investment proposition for fans and investors alike."

Like a lot of things, not so strong and stable after all.

So the partner of the daughter of the owner buying a £7M debt from the previous owner's firm in administration for £70k two days before the postponed CVA meeting isn't unusual?

That's totally normal procedure.
