Ryan Lowe visited my partner in hospital just before his heart surgery to lift his spirits. This club means everything to him!! They even invited him as a guest and were always asking how he was after his heart operation! During his stay in hospital they let him watch the shakers so he didn't miss a thing.

This my dad Paul Perry he would deck his car out in Bury gear and when we did the save our shakers a few years ago he would go around Bury with the loud speaker on the car trying to get people to the game. When he became ill I used to take him to the games as his carer and was made more than welcome by the supporters. I took over his season ticket and still buy a ticket every season and go to the games and have done for the past 15 years.

This is me and my dad during the last match last season. My dad has followed bury for many years and hasn't missed a home match for decades! He is a life season ticket holder after donating a large sum of money to the club during previous financial difficulties. He took me to my first match when I just a few weeks old. Bury FC means so much to us both and it is unthinkable that we may not get to spend quality time together at Gigg Lane anymore. Tomorrow is my birthday. I'm hoping to be celebrating still having our loved football club rather than drowning our sorrows.

My first match at Gigg Lane was in the late 1940’s when I saw Bury playing Blackpool, I was only a young child and very small, my father took me into the paddock in front of the main stand, I could not see as we were at the back so the crowd passed me over their heads to the front so I could sit on the wall to watch.

I was in labour with my son on 25th April 2011 while his Dad was listening to Bury on the radio and get promoted. He was willing his son to be born on the same day and although a couple of hours late he arrived, he was born a Bury fan. Over the last 8 years he has loved going to Gigg Lane with his Dad and his Grandad supporting his home town team!

I got hold of an inflatable black pudding as soon as they came out, as did all the other Bury FC juniors lads at the time. It was a year or so after this photo was taken that they replaced me with a slightly better fullback ... something Neville I think his name was. I think he went on to play for a big(ish) team somewhere, but I bet he didn't have an inflatable blackpudding!

Always lived in Stoke area with no connection to Bury, but for some reason Bury have always been my team from the early 70s. My first game was at Port Vale to see my beloved Bury although from time to time i had watched them on Granada Sunday football show. The day came when i traveled to Gigg lane for my first ever home game, Tuesday 20th October 1981, we beat Wigan 5-3, not knowing Bury or train times i eventually arrived back home a 4.00am having walked from Macclesfield Train Station to home. i would do it again tomorrow if it meant Bury survive.

My son John who has cerebral palsy and has been a member of the disabled supporters for the last 19 seasons. The times we have spent with our friends watching The Shakers together have been a priceless part of our lives. I've been a supporter for 47 years and my Grandad for his entire lifetime. It cannot end because of the greed of one man. Once A Shaker Always A Shaker.

My children’s first match. We got the tickets from Millwood school. My Grandad was a lifelong fan, every time I have a coffee in my Bury mug I think of him with pride and wish he he’d been here to take my children to the match.

I've been following Bury for so many years due to my mother's uncle who lives there. Sadly, I never had the chance to watch the Shakers and kept following them on social media until last season. I flew all the way from Cyprus to Manchester and went to Bury to watch my first ever game against Oldham and I didn't know how to get to Gigg lane. Luckily, a lovely elderly woman helped me get to Gigg Lane and helped me get a ticket at Neville Neville stand. Wonderful people at Bury I hope and pray I can visit again soon It was a beautiful day

Many great memories watching the Shakers but my favourite would have to taking my son to celebrate promotion for the first time since he started watching Bury. Horrible to think this could be the last time we would be watching Bury Fc. Please don’t let this club die. UTS 💙

I used to be a season ticket holder as a kid so, One of my Favourite moments at Gigg Lane was watching my son Ryan do a lap of honour around Gigg when he played for Bury FC Youth in 2014.

I took my nephew to his first Bury game this season (The 5-0 win against Dover). My first game was against Stockport in 1997 at Gigg. I'm praying I get to take my son, who will be born in November, to his first game at Gigg one day. Its more than just a club.

I first went to Bury in the 60’s George Jones was my hero. I’ve now been going to Gigg for 50+ years and have taken my children and now my grandchildren. The photos are of my 3 grandsons (with my eldest in first picture at front celebrating a goal) who also have the Gigg bug. Like me they’ve seen the ups and downs of this wonderful community football club. We will never be glory hunters, that’s for sure. What’s happening is a national disgrace and should not have been allowed to happen by the EFL who are the supposed guardians of the game!
