Bury’s League One match against Gillingham on Saturday has been suspended, the EFL has announced.
The Shakers were deducted 12 points for entering into a company voluntary agreement (CVA) and have been issued with a notice of withdrawal of membership by the EFL.
They also had their first three games of the campaign postponed.
“The EFL Board has suspended Bury FC’s fixture with Gillingham on Saturday August 17, 2019 as it has not received the outstanding evidence required by today’s 9am deadline.”
The EFL added: “The EFL has made it clear that it cannot continue suspending fixtures indefinitely and the deadline of August 23 for withdrawal of membership remains in place.
“However, the EFL remains committed to working with the club to try and find a successful conclusion.”
