Clubs In Crisis

Bury have denied press reports saying that Gary Neville had paid the wage bill at the club. The self-imposed 7-10 day deadline for 'concrete' investment has now passed, with the board cancelling a fans forum on Thursday as they had nothing solid to tell fans.

Aldershot's proposed investor has pulled out after failing to meet a Thursday deadline set by majority owner Kris Machala, with the former chairman having vetoed a proposed share issue in favour of the investor. The club are expected to make some form of announcement over the weekend with two reported plans under consideration to avoid Administration with the situation 'dire'.

Ebbsfleet chairman Jessica McQueen says the club needs £20,000 by Monday to be able to make an offer to creditors. If it is unable to raise the funds the club will have to seriously consider Administration with £100,000 needed by the end of the month. A transfer of the club from MyFC to the Supporters Trust is expected to take several weeks.

McQueen told the BBC: "It is not an administration [on] Monday or winding-up [on] Monday but it is a situation where the club will have to seriously look at itself and see whether it can continue."
