There has been speculation over the weekend regarding the potential purchase of Gigg Lane. The Shakers Community board would like to put the record straight and confirm that we have never made any bid to purchase Gigg Lane. Our rules would not permit such actions without a mandate to do so from our members.
We all feel the pain and despair at what has happened to Bury FC caused by the decisions of previous owners.
Fans have had their hopes for a rescue of the club raised and dashed innumerable times in the last two years. It is understandable that Bury fans raise questions when someone new comes along. The Shakers Community and Bury AFC board defend the right of supporters to respectfully air their views and we refute any speculation that social media criticism has been coordinated by Bury AFC.
