Bury have been given until 5pm on Tuesday to secure their future, with current owner Steve Dale in talks with data analytics company C&N Sporting Risk over a potential takeover.

However, EFL executive chair Debbie Jevans has suggested that deadline could be extended if only "one per cent" of the deal remains to be completed.

Volunteers have been arriving at Gigg Lane this morning after an appeal from the club to help clean up the stadium.

"Whilst the EFL and our potential new owners proceed with their necessary paperwork and dealings, the club needs to prepare the Stadium in order for Saturdays EFL Sky Bet League One clash with Doncaster Rovers to take place.

"With Tuesday’s deadline firmly set, preparations for our first game of the season will commence at 9:00am on Tuesday morning."

"Recent events, over the summer months, have left the club with just a skeleton staff and we must, therefore, call on voluntary help in order to get the Stadium ready."
