C&N Sporting Risk: Firm pulls out of deal to save Bury from liquidation | UK News



The future of Bury has been thrown into doubt after C&N Sporting Risk said it was “unable to proceed” with its takeover of the football club.

It comes ahead of 5pm deadline for the League One club, founded in 1885, to secure its future.

The Lancashire club must either prove a deal has been done or provide reasons for requiring an extension, or else they face being kicked out of the Football League after 134 years.
