Bolton ‘fans’ mock Bury by leaving cardboard coffin outside ground

A social media post appearing to show Bolton Wanderers ‘fans’ mock Bury’s dismal situation by leaving a cardboard coffin outside the ground.

Last night it was confirmed that the Shakers have had a second league match of the new season suspended, they were suppose to have played Milton Keynes Dons today and Accrington Stanley next Saturday.

A tweet on @theawayfans is captioned: “Some Bolton fans have left this message outside Bury’s ground, after Bury fans mocked Bolton’s financial troubles last season by taking a banner to a game last season in support of Bolton’s former owner, who almost liquidated the Wanderers.”

It shows the cardboard coffin with ‘RIP BERRY’ written in bold across it, and in front of that is a note, which says “Remember this? Karma’s a bitch, you bucket shaking, black pudding eating fake manc accent talking berry bastards!!”

Laid out on the concrete, where the Bury vice chairman normally parks his car, is an ‘Yes We Ken’ banner along with a bucket with BFC on it.

Following the EFL’s statement, Bury owner Steve Dale put one out himself.


“I today [yesterday] have seen the biggest injustice I have ever seen from this alleged body there to help clubs “the EFL.”

“Again after submitting all that was asked from the EFL from our Lawyer, we got a call late tonight saying they are postponing our fixture with Accrington Stanley.

“Grounds given to our Lawyer from Nick Craig “we want to substantiate some figures that may or may not be correct” we requested what these were as we could answer them there and then, the reply “we will get them to you as soon as we can but we are all at matches this weekend” and so would Bury fans if the EFL played with a straight bat.

“Why did they not wait till Monday to again postpone our fixture if something was missing, we have the weekend to get any information to them, but no once again they prove they are clearly “The Destroyer of Clubs” where malice and vindictive actions take precedence over the whole premise of the EFL TO HELP CLUBS.

“Let me list below the requirements sent from there Solicitor which we had to comply with, facts in bold, I do this to prevent ambiguity.

“1.) Confirmation and evidence that all outstanding sums due to players will (or have been) paid in full to the satisfaction of the EFL and the PFA; THE PFA CONFIRMED TO THE EFL THAT THIS HAD BEEN AGREED TO THE SATISFACTION OF BOTH PARTIES.

“2.) Receipt of written evidence of a bank account with £1.5m in it or a guaranteed line of credit for this amount freely available to the Club (and not any third party) which will allow the Club to operate in the 2019/2020 season; A LETTER OF CREDIT WAS GIVEN TODAY FOR £1.65M.

“3.) A certificate/email confirming that the SAG has approved that the Stadium is fit for purpose and that all the necessary plans are in place for the 2019/2020 season; THEY WERE DONE BEFORE THEIR LAST STATEMENT.


“I could’ve gone into the ill truths last time, that tried to discredit me and can disprove any allegations about me, but this beats them all, the deal was struck with our Lawyer and we were just waiting for them to say all is good so we can sign our players who 100% want to play for Bury and have waited patiently, the EFL are aware these players will have to sign elsewhere and seem to be dragging this out till we lose them as nobody expected us to save Bury never mind get players signing of the calibre we have so clearly there is an agenda here, I was told tonight by Debbie Jevans when I said just let us sign our team please before we lose them, the reply “you can play with your youth”, I REST MY CASE.”


Sad times indeed.
