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.
