    From the depths of despair a chink of light emerges, plenty of pitfalls still await but well done guys 👏👏👏

    Does it say how much they had to raise?
    Will we be able to raise £11 let alone £11 million?

    What you trying to say Alcy, have you no faith in scunny fans. Ps they did receive £1 million pound grant from the government leveling up fund, also help from the local council, sure our local council would help out if needs must, after all they’ve always been fully supported of their local team.

    Very well done Bury AFC and the Shakers. It sounds as if the Government, Council, Fans and their local community have all pulled together in the right direction and will once again have a club to support and be proud of. C’mon SWANN give us our land and stadium back and clear off!

    You are joking Awaywego. Who has run a the debt up at our Club and put us in the position we are now. SWANN. Who has transferred ownership of our stadium and assets to their own family company. sWANN. C”mon SWANN now is the time to give us our stadium and assets back and leave.

    Probably all our chairman have left a debt Wharton certainly did,but that’s what most clubs do, we’re not special in that way, but you just expect Swann to walk away,why? I am sure non of us would,what big thing have you given away?.

    Debt profile:
    Wharton’s hobby £2m
    Swann’s Business £11m

    As you say running a club at this level is always going to give you a debit in the bank (unless you can develop players and sell for tidy profit). I doubt Swann could walk away without folding the club but he appears to have lost interest so what next?

    Funny though, do you recall all those fans six, seven, eight and nine years ago who were on here screaming the magic catchphrase “Not spending enough. The club has no ambition! Pay peanuts you get monkeys etc, etc.”

    Well …

    May I declare myself as always having been an admirer of Mr Wharton.

    Because one of his statements said he’d leave our club better off when he went?

    Well it looks like he’s had enough: putting no money in, not paying off the loan to let us sign anyone worthwhile, not attending matches any more, etc etc.
