Third-tier Bury expelled from Football League - EFL statement

MANCHESTER, England: Bury, one of English football's oldest clubs, were expelled from the Football League on Tuesday after failing to resolve their financial problems or find a new buyer, the EFL said in a statement.

Multiple media reports suggested at least three late offers had been submitted to buy Bury but the league, which had already suspended five scheduled fixtures for the club this season, decided to end their participation in the league. "The EFL Board had maintained that there could be no further suspensions to the fixture list and that these ongoing concerns and the integrity of the competition were a significant factor in the decision."In a separate decision, the EFL ruled that fellow third-tier side Bolton Wanderers, another club with acute financial problems, had 14 days to resolve their situation or face the same outcome.
