In order to do this the new owners must be in place. They must pass all regulations and inspections well in advance of this season ending. They must own their ground. They must have a squad and training facilities in place. They must accept that their 12 point administration punishment is carried over to next season in L2. And last, but not least, they must have paid (not agreed to pay at some point) compensation to all current L1 clubs equal to not less than the equivalent of their average gate receipt for the fixture which will not occur this year. If they do that I would consider it. If not they can start in tier 20 for all I care.

All this wailing and gnashing of teeth over Bury is getting out of hand. Sympathy for Bury fans I have to an extent, but where is the same outcry for Stockport, or Chester, or numerous others who have got into difficulties and fallen out of the league possibly not to return? If Bury get a reprieve it will be like a double punishment for them - teams who obeyed the rules and took their punishments.
