Bury won’t be re-admitted into the EFL season following a meeting involving the 71 member teams on Thursday.
EFL clubs have also agreed that only 1 club will be relegated this season.
Bury were expelled in League One and the EFL following the collapse of a takeover after the postponement of their first five fittings after the Shakers were unable to give proof of the capacity.
An EFL announcement said:»During the meeting, the EFL and its member clubs debated and considered quite a few alternatives, together with all clubs given the opportunity to air their viewpoints.
«The debate included consideration of the proposal submitted by the Bury FC Rescue Board for your club to be admitted to League 2 under new ownership in year 2020-21.
«Following in-depth discussions, it became clear that the proposal did not have the essential support and EFL clubs slated expanding the current principle of a reduction in relegation across all divisions as a way of returning to 72 clubs now and for the future»
The Rescue Board, chaired by Bury North MP James Frith, had appealed to EFL associates to encourage an»compassionate re-entry» to the club, but their plea fell on deaf ears.
«While we are saddened that Bury FC is no more part of the EFL, the board hard choice to draw membership was only taken after each chance to discover a settlement was exhausted,» EFL executive seat Debbie Jevans said.
«Since that time, in recognition of their efforts made on behalf of their club, the EFL has participated with fans’ groups, shared their entries together with our members and debated at length the problems raised.
«Following the discussion [on Thursday], clubs have established the favored way of travel is to reduce relegation from League Two as a way of returning to 72 golf clubs. The clubs felt that, in a tricky situation, this approach keeps equity for all members upholds the principle of the football pyramid.»
