Bury Football Club's fans fight to keep their club alive

Bury Football Club's 125-year membership of the Football League ended in August 2019, when they were expelled from the EFL after not playing a game in the 2019-20 season.

A proposal for Bury to be readmitted to League Two next season has been rejected by the English Football League's 71 member clubs.

The club is also facing legal action for unpaid debts, brought by HM Revenue & Customs.

Bury FC supporters told us what it means to them to have been left without a team, and why they're determined to fight for something that "brings people together".
