Bury hit with second transfer embargo
A SECOND transfer embargo has been imposed on League One side Bury after the club took out another loan from the Professional Footballers Association to help with “ongoing expenses”.
Commercial director David Manchester confirmed the Gigg Lane outfit will be prevented by the Football League from making any moves for players while the embargo is in force.
Manager Kevin Blackwell’s battle to get the club out of the relegation zone was hit several weeks ago when the first month-long embargo was imposed before it was lifted on January 13.
Ahead of Bury’s match at Notts County tonight, Manchester said: “I can confirm at the moment we are in a transfer embargo. We have received a temporary loan again from the PFA to see us through the next three months with our ongoing expenses.
“Like many businesses at the moment we have a temporary cashflow problem which we need help with in the short term.”
Manchester would not say how much the loan was for.
