‘All I want is to save Bury, but I’ve done all I can’ – Owner Steve Dale explains why in-crisis League One club is now up for sale

Bury owner Steve Dale has told talkSPORT why he has now put the in-crisis club up for sale after ‘doing all he can’ to save the Shakers.

Dale has been a regular guest on talkSPORT in recent weeks as he has brought us ongoing updates on his quest to get the new League One side’s season up and running.

Bury secured promotion to the third tier last term, but they are yet to get their new campaign under way after having their opening two league fixtures against MK Dons and Accrington Stanley suspended by the English Football League.

Tuesday’s Carabao Cup clash with Sheffield Wednesday has also been called off, while Saturday’s league game against Gillingham is in danger of also being postponed.

The Shakers have been told by the EFL that they face Football League expulsion if they do not meet all outstanding requirements of the league’s insolvency policy – although Dale has maintained they have given league chiefs sufficient proof of their finances.

Earlier on Monday, staff at Bury issued a statement on the club’s official website that urged Dale to accept an offer for the club.

And, speaking to talkSPORT host Jim White on Tuesday, he owner said he is now willing to sell to the right buyer and pleaded for interested parties to get in touch.

With the latest update on Bury’s situation, Dale said: “We received an email from a lawyer who said he had an interested party, so we’re waiting to hear from them.

“We’ve had no offer, we had an outline of what they were proposing to do, but there has been no offer to buy my shares.

“Look, all I want is to save Bury, it’s all I’ve wanted from day one. All this has caused me immeasurable health problems.

“I’m done now. I’ve done all I can. I just want Bury to be safe, that’s all I’ve ever wanted.

“I’ve written letters to various people who have shown interest in the past, saying: ‘I’m in the market to sell it now, get in touch with me’.

“I just want what’s best for Bury. I don’t want to pass it onto another person like the previous owner or indeed someone who has other ideas.

“It’s as grand old club that needs some love still, but the big jobs are done now and it just needs following through and it needs the EFL to help it.

At the end of the day, we’re only custodians. Bury, and saving the old girl, is the most important thing.”
