Bury chairman Steve Dale has revealed the cash-strapped club is safe after a company voluntary arrangement was agreed.

The Shakers saw a winding up petition over unpaid debts adjourned at the High Court last month and have now secured their future with the CVA.

Dale, who was involved in an angry confrontation with a group of supporters during Saturday's friendly at Nantwich Town, confirmed the news in a statement on the League One club's official website.

"Today was a major day for our beloved club, the old girl is safe. The CVA was passed, so our future is secured, as I said I would.

"We have worked tirelessly to achieve the result today whilst taking a lot of flak.

"Some might say our methods were questionable but we can all pass comment with hindsight.

"My job was to save Bury FC and that's done. We have other hurdles but the main one is complete."
