The Bury Times have explained how Chichester City will be making a donation to Bury Football Club. The Football Manc Cave looks at your reactions.
Chichester are the lowest-ranked team in the FA Cup. They were the last team to be drawn out on Monday. With Bury’s expulsion from the competition, this meant that Chichester get to go straight through to the next round.
They now pocket £36,000 in prize money simply for going through. However, they have made a brilliant gesture to the Shakers.
The Chichester Twitter account put out a tweet to explain that they would be making a donation to Bury.
This is a fantastic gesture that fans have been overwhelmed by. The Bury Twitter account replied showing their appreciation.
Now it looks like Bury fans may start to follow Chichester’s progress in the competition as a thank you.
Unfortunately, Bury are back in the High Court on Wednesday, October 30 to face a winding-up petition. This hearing could see the club formally liquidated.
This gesture should take centre stage over the disappointing court news.
