The 65-year-old was taken ill in Australia on Tuesday, the club said.

It is with deep regret and extremely heavy hearts that we announce the sudden death of former Commercial Manager, Director and Club ambassador, Neville Neville.

"Neville, along with wife and Club Secretary Jill, were in Australia to support daughter Tracey, the current England Netball team manager, in their quest for World Cup Glory.

"Neville was taken seriously ill on Tuesday and unfortunately did not recover, passing away earlier today.

"Our deepest condolences are extended to Jill, Gary, Philip and Tracey and the entire Neville family.

"Bury FC will pay tribute to Neville in due course and we ask everyone to allow the Neville family the time to grieve privately at this exceptionally sad time.

"We would like to end this statement by simply saying – ‘Where would this Club be without Neville?”

"Rest in Peace big Nev."
