BURY-BORN Phil Neville has spoken of the devastation the Shakers' demise has had on everyone connected with the club, including his own family.

His mother Jill only recently left her role as club secretary while his late father, Neville, was a director and has a stand named after him at Gigg Lane.

Jill was also linked with a role in a takeover move that emerged after C&N Sporting Risk pulled out of their proposed deal just hours before the deadline set by the EFL.

"She's got unbelievable memories," said the current England Women's team manager and former Manchester United player.

"She's got great memories in her life.

"Watching her sons play or her daughter play, but probably her best memories were going into work with her husband every single day.

"She's no longer got that, but that is like every other of the 3,000, 4,000 supporters at Bury.

They're not people that just roll over, there are people in that football club that are ingrained in the brickwork, in the foundations.

"They wake up this morning with no football club.

"One man, at this moment in time, is to blame for it. And nothing can be done about it, so all we can do is hope that Bury have a football club in the future. How that happens I don't know."
