The EFL has issued a statement regarding the future of Bolton Wanderers and Bury FC, here is what Twitter has to say…
Fans of Bolton Wanderers have more to be happy about than Bury fans right now. Although both clubs are in terribly murky waters.
An official statement from the EFL has finally been released. They have concluded that Bolton Wanderers have ‘satisfied that they are sufficient to meet the requirements of the League’. Therefore, ‘their opening day fixture with Wycombe Wanderers and it will remain as originally scheduled on Saturday 3 August 2019 at 3 pm‘.
Bury, on the other hand, have not supplied sufficient evidence ‘in regard to the outstanding information it requires that demonstrates how the Club will be funded moving forward’.
Bury’s opening fixture against MK Dons has been suspended. Should necessary evidence not be presented to the EFL board by Friday 2nd of August, their fixture the following day against Accrington Stanley will be suspended also.
Let’s see what EFL fans have to say about the news…
The general consensus is that the corporation side of the sport has brought devastating results to the clubs and fans.
Bolton has been granted permission to play the opening fixture. However, fans fear that their journey afterwards may not continue…
Some fans feel as though the richer clubs in the country should hold out a helping hand.
Both Bolton and Bury are respected amongst the football community. Hopefully, the Greater Manchester clubs can pull through these tough times.
