Bury were recently relegated to the bottom tier of the football league after the 1-0 defeat at the hands of Oldham. At the same time, it has been revealed that the owners have appealed for fresh investment to the tune of £ 1 million in order to keep the club afloat. Bury manager Kevin Blackwell has revealed that the timing of the announcement could not have come at a much better time. The team will be playing in the League Two next season. The director of the club, David Manchester said ahead of the match that the plea from the owners has had a good response.

The club has been conducting talks, which have been positive, for the last week, and he expects it to extend into the coming week as well. The manager, Kevin Blackwell, has said that his position is not the best because he is unable to plan for next season without knowing the future of the club. Bury will be playing for pride from now until the end of the season. The team has been an opponent of form for most of the campaign, but it is primarily due to the quality of players at the disposal of Blackwell. He has had to sell most of his best players.

“We’ve known this has probably been coming for weeks. I suppose it’s quite apt that it’s come in a week when the whole thing has imploded at the football club. Until the club is saved, there are no discussions to be had. If the directors are right and there are some interested parties, we need them in sooner rather than later. We’ve got no numbers left – we really are at a point where something drastic and quick has got to happen,” said Blackwell after the match.
