Sad day for English football. The club of Bury, one of the oldest of the Kingdom, was excluded from the professional world by the English Football League (EFL), for financial reasons Tuesday night. A first since 1992.

The Bury club was banned from English professional football for financial reasons, after more than 100 years of participation, said Tuesday the body organizing the 3rd British Division (EFL) where he was to evolve this season.

The management of the English Football League "decided with great regret that the membership of Bury would be withdrawn," wrote in a statement the EFL, which oversees the 3rd and 4th divisions English, the latest pro status.

A first for 27 years

The club, winner of two Cups of England (1900, 1903) and who celebrated his accession to the 3rd Division just a few months ago, was unable to submit a recovery plan by the deadline of Tuesday 16:00.

This club in northwestern England, near Manchester, is the first to be excluded from a professional championship since Maidstone United in 1992.
