Bury issue rallying cry for support in second club statment

BURY have issued a more detailed statement, clarifying the situation at the club following the Football League's decision to impose a transfer embargo.

The full statment reads: "Following on from the brief statement issued earlier today, the chairman and the directors of Bury Football Club have been working tirelessly over the past number of weeks to bring in new investment into the football club having financed the day to day running of the club over a number of years.

"We are like a large number of other football clubs experiencing cash flow issues, and to that end the club have negotiated with the PFA a temporary short-term loan which is to be repaid in mid-January 2013.

"Until the loan has been repaid the club has been imposed with an embargo in registering new players.

"As we speak we cannot register any new players until January 1 2013 under league rules, the embargo will extend that block on signing new players until this loan is fully repaid to the PFA.

"The board would like to assure all supporters that this is only a temporary issue.

"Supporters can help to rectify this sooner if they attend our next home game on Friday, December 21, where, along with our ‘quid a kid’ offer, we are asking season ticket holders from all north west clubs to come along for just £10 (along with the production of your club's season ticket).

"Additionally, Bury fans can help by taking up our limited one off offer of a season ticket for 2013/4 for £250.

"Details of the season ticket offer have been posted to all current season ticket holders and further details will be available online at www.buryfc.co.uk later today.

"The manager, backroom staff and players have done a wonderful job in improving matters on the pitch and we urge our great fans to come down and support the club in numbers.

"We all value your continued support."

The biggest concern that i have is that our manager was not made aware of this loan that the club took out.If the club have kept him in the dark then there is no doubt a breach of trust which might result in a breakdown with him and the players at the club.I think this problem financially will only be a short term issue.Swindon Town also had an embargo placed upon them some time a go and they have now resolved that so let's keep the faith.

So if they are already trying to sell next season's season tickets, it is quite obvious that this money will be used to pay off some of the money owed to the PFA.

Therefore next season, they could have a similar problem as they have already spent some of the ticket money.

Where do you work out Kevin Blackwell was not aware of the loan from the PFA, Eileen?

Bury will resolve their money issues in the next transfer window when Blackwell has had a mass clear out of players...

Skysports are reporting fresh interest in David Worrall - as much as I wouldnt like to see him leave gigg lane, the sale of him would most likely bring in at least £500k - a sum that would easily see Bury comfortable for the foreseeable future.....

Oh Andre please,do you think that he (BLACKWELL) would have signed Ben Parker if he had known about the loan Bury fc made with the PFA?.

The consequences of the loan should have been obvious to all concerned.

Did the board really think that they could just sign players and they would be exempt from action of them cancelling their registration? once the embargo was in place?.

The vultures (CTFC) will now be looking for cheap buys thinking we are in a financial hole."That's football".

I'm lead to believe that our Tv money which we receive in january will be used to pay off this loan.

The money that the club receives from it's share of Sky television.Each club receives around 800k so i'm lead to believe whether they are chosen for live games or not.Where have you been Andre?.

Think that the board will gamble on doing better next season. Therefore hoping that the gates will improve. Personally I think that if we can get through this season, keep in this division, we will improve next season. Think that Blackwell is a decent manager, but has had to clear up the mess left. Think the board made an error in leaving Shirtliff in charge for so long, can understand them wanting to give him a chance but they left it to long. The reason for the low gates is due to the lack of wins. MUST say Eileenshaker you get hold of some interesting info
