Bury FC, English club, expelled from Football League after 125 years

- Bury FC have been expelled from Football League in England after 125 years of existence

- Bury have had to postpone five League One fixtures and an EFL Cup tie just this term

English club Bury FC have been sent out of the Football League for failing to prove their financial viability ending their 125 years of existence in soccer.

Until their expulsion from football, they were campaigning in League one in England and they had until Tuesday evening, August 27, to complete a deal which they failed to.

Bury which is also known as The Shakers are now the first team to drop out of the EFL since Maidstone's liquidation in 1992.

And as it stands now in League One with the latest expulsion of Bury FC, it means 23 teams will campaign in the season and three teams will be relegated.

"Today is undoubtedly one of the darkest days in the league's recent history.

"The EFL has worked determinedly and tirelessly to avoid this outcome and it is with a heavy heart that this situation has been forced upon us.

"I understand this will be a deeply upsetting and devastating time for Bury’s players, staff, supporters and the wider community.

"There is no doubt today’s news will be felt across the entire football family.

"No one wanted to be in this position but following repeated missed deadlines, the suspension had to come,'' EFL executive chair Debbie Jevans said according to UK Sun.
