PRIZED midfielder David Worrall has launched a scathing attack on the Bury directors, revealing the players remain in the dark about the club’s precarious financial position.

The 22-year-old midfielder, who captained the Shakers to victory against Scunthorpe on Tuesday night, said there had been no contact from the board since last week, when chairman Brian Fenton launched an appeal for £1million to stop the club going out of business.

“No-one has spoken to us, so we’re all still scratching our heads,” said Worrall.

“It would be nice for someone to come and speak to us, but that’s up to them. They run it, so they can do what they want.”

Worrall admitted he was disappointed with the lack of communication, and would be seeking talks with the chairman as soon as possible.

The young midfielder has a year left on his contract and is regarded as one of the few saleable assets in the squad.

Yet, despite reiterating his desire to play in the Championship, the Manchester-born youngster is adamant his own future is not his biggest concern.

“I will probably try and sit down with Brian soon and see what’s going on,” he said.

“If I need to be off the wage bill then we are going to have to sort something out.

“If he wants me to stay, then we are going to have to talk and see where my future is.

“But I feel more sorry for the players who have got a mortgage and all that to pay for.

“I’m more worried about them and what they are going to do. Hopefully they will get it sorted.”

Worrall admits the financial turmoil at the club has not helped the players’ focus on matters on the pitch, which came to a head on Saturday when Bury were relegated to League Two following a 1-0 defeat at home to Oldham.

“Relegation hurt. It hurt really bad, with everything that’s gone on,” he said.

“I don’t blame the lads. I don’t blame the staff. I don’t blame the fans. I blame certain people, but I don’t want to pick out names.

“It’s Bury FC – everything happens here.

“I’ve been here four years and I’ve seen everything happen, under Alan Knill, Richie Barker and now this. Nothing surprises me now.

“But there is nothing we can do, is there? It’s just sad.”
