BURY North MP James Frith has renewed his calls for Bury FC's owner to sell the club as soon as possible.

The Shakers were handed another reprieve yesterday as a winding-up petition against the club was adjourned for the third time in as many months.

Mr Frith, who had written to the High Court judge pleading for yet more time to save the historic club, welcomed the outcome, but warned that Bury were "far from out of the danger zone".

Earlier this week, the MP called for Steve Dale to sell the club. In light of today's outcome, he urged the Bury owner to "get his skates on and get going".

He said: "I repeat my call to Steve Dale to facilitate the change or ownership as soon as possible.

"This is not a time to be holding Bury FC in the shop window for a month and a half. It is time to get his skates on and get going."

Mr Frith also listed six things that he believed Mr Dale, who only took over the club last December from previous owner Stewart Day, had to do before the club returns to court in six weeks.

He said they were "identifying and engaging with prospective buyers, as well as the proof of funds; the legal side of things; having the deal signed off by the EFL; a transfer of funds and then the payment of debts to creditors, including HMRC."

To help with attempts to sell the club, Mr Frith has put together a rescue board “with expertise and access to capital”, which met last week.

The MP will also be carrying out a Facebook Live from 7pm this evening where fans can ask questions about the club.
