Bury takeover bid falls through – HMRC winding-up petition will not now be challenged

Supporters group Forever Bury have declared they will not continue using their legal struggle to prevent the HMRC winding-up request after their attention was stopped by a buyer.
The clubs 125-year Soccer League membership was pulled at the end of August as soon as they failed to generate evidence of how theyd fulfil their obligations.
A first takeover bid collapsed and the effort to help protect the clubs potential has also fallen through after due diligence on the part of the party.
We hope to inform the fans of Bury Football Club the interested party that has been working with Forever Bury to a proposed bid to buy the club has confirmed this is not a viable prospect for these, read the announcement.
As things have the mandatory due diligence was undertaken, the complicated, complicated and financially distressed scenario in Bury Football Club has led to their choice to stand back out of further talks.
Resulting from the information, Forever Bury will not currently be putting forward a valid defence against the HMRC winding-up petition on Wednesday 16th October 2019, as we believe there isnt any longer sufficient evidence to indicate a meaningful case might be made.
