Bury expelled from the EFL

Thursday 22nd August 2019

Bury FC have been expelled from the EFL after failing to find a buyer and prove they could fulfil this season’s fixtures.

The League 1 club who were promoted last year are in financial turmoil and had yet to kick a ball this season having had all 5 games postponed and been kicked out of the League Cup. Their entering into a CVA had already seen them start the season on -12 points. Several key players and their manager had also left to join League 2 side Plymouth.

League 1 will now continue with 23 teams this season. Only 3 will now be relegated as opposed to the usual 4.

Bury had been members of the Football League since 1894. They are the first club to be expelled since Maidstone were liquidated in 1992.
